Well at least nn a car, you need a clutch because the engine spins all the time and the car wheels don't. In order for a car to stop without killing the engine, the wheels need to be disconnected from the engine somehow. The clutch allows us to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them...

Is there a clutch on a f1 car?

Yes. A F1 car has a clutch. It is not like a normal clutch that you see in a normal road car. In a normal car when you use the clutch, the engine power does not get transferred to the flywheel and propel the car whereas in a F1 car even when the clutch is used the power gets transferred to propel the car.

Can you drive a car with out a throwout bearing?

No, the throw out bearing in a clutch is needed to keep an disengaged clutch spinning. you can drive a car with a bad throwout bearing if you don't use the clutch By "floating the gears". You must disconnect or bypass the start safety switch (this is when you need to have the clutch pedal to the floor to start the moter) so that you can start the car in gear if you come to a complete stop.

A 2 stroke engine with a wet clutch should use 70weight oil. It is really called gear or manual transmission type oil as the gears are also using this oil. Yes you can use car oil in a 4 stoke bike with a wet clutch but try to find oil that has as little additives as possible.
