In The Pits: Formula 1 Technology How Much Does it Cost to build an F1 Car? Rear Wing Single Price $12.900 Responsible for about 30% of the car's total downforce Total Lifetime Cost $129,000 Single Price $28.8540 Steering Wheel The average weight of a steering wheel is 2 pounds. Total Lifetime Cost $28,854O Exhaust Single Price $11,600 At 900 degrees Celsius the gasses whip past the titanium outlet valves and into the exhaue Total Lifetime Cost system at the speed of sound. S255,620 Single Price 521,500 Front Wing creates about 25% of the car's total downforce Total Lifetime Cost $215,000 Tyre max life of F1 tires is at most 200 $650 O Single Price Engine 750 Hp Single Price A single F1 engine is made up 5214,300 of around 1000 parts and takes Total Lifetime Cost about 80 hours to assemble kilometers. It rotates 150,000x Total Lifetime Cost $4.7 Million per race, SOx per second at top speed $291.200 Undertray seperate floor to the car bolted $8,600 onto the underside of the Single Price Single Price N/A O KERS recovers kinetic energy present in waste created by car's brak- ing system *Adds 80HP Total Lifetime Cost N/A O Total Lifetime Cost monocoque $86,000 Single Price $3,590 Monocoque The monocoque is constructed from $117,900 several carbon-fibre components bonded together with powerful adhesives. Single Price Brakes The materials get heated Total Lifetime Cost Total Lifetime Cost $117.900 to 2500 degrees Celcius S207,000 Gearbox allows driver to changes gears with steering wheel-mounted controls and without having to use a clutch pedal. Single Price $128,600 Total Lifetime Cost Estimation of the lifetime cost of owning an F1 car: $128,600 $6,868,000 Telemetry Software Single Price $107,150 used by engineeers to track numerous variables during the race in real time Total Lifetime Cost $107,150 Front Wing reduces drag Undertray reduces drag Spoiler reduces drag Dealing With Aero Dynamics At top speed, the downforce on the front wing will be 3/4 of a tonne. generates downforce I generates downforce 80% of the car's grip comes from aerodynamics F1 Team Garage F1 An F1 car must reach a speed of 80mph to reach a downforce:weight ratio of 1:1. downforce This ratio at 118mph is 2:1 downforce Downforce is ample at high speeds for standard production cars Standard Production Car Race car wings operate on exactly the same principle asaircraft wings, only in reverse. Air flows at different speeds over the two sides of the wing and this creates a difference in pressure. As this pressure tries to balance, the wing tries to move in the direction of the low pressure. Planes use their wings to create lift, race cars use theirs to create downforce. A modern Formula One car is capable of developing 3.5 g lateral cornering force (three and a half times its own weight) thanks to aerodynamic downforce.That means that, theoretically, at high speeds they could drive upside down. On the Grid Talking The Torque What does it take to start an F1 car? Acceleration O to 62 mph in 1.7 Seconds The engine needs to be heated because an F1 will not start if the engine is cold. O to 124 mph in 3.8 Seconds 10 O to186 mph in 8.6 Seconds F1 cars use an external starter which is accessed in the rear of the vehicle. 120 mph to 0 in 3.0 Seconds How many people are required? The Starter Man is responsible for starting the F1. He also needs to be at the ready in case the car stalls during the race. There are 17 pit crew members total. 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 160 180 200 120 60 MPH MPH Monitoring an F1 car 1MB of data per second sent from the car, At top speed, 150,000 engine and ehicle measurements are collected each second. Hours checking a new cylinder head with computer tomography: 20 Over 200 channels of data are transmitted between the car and the garage during a Grand Prix Technology Used: ATLAS works withs ervers to access data when needed, dividing the server information into three categories: highest speed of an F1 on a straight-away is 257 mph Brakes 10.9 Inches 1.1 mm Diameter of Brakes Max Thickness of brakes Engine Chassis - Driver DRS 200 180 160 140 120 100 80 60 40 20 (drag reduction system): the rear wing can only be adjusted if F1 is 1 second behind another diver MPH 124 mph to 0 in 2.21 Seconds mpg of an F1 car is 3.1 The average fuel consumption of an F1 car during a 186 mile race is 48 to 50 gallons. Slick tires give up to 18% more contact with the track. An F1 car can do up to 200 miles on one tank. 2.4 L V8 Maximum size allowed to be in an F1car F1 cars use regular unleaded such as you'd get for a road car. 18,000 rpm Max rpm's allowed for F1 engines -1-E So You Want To Own an What does it cost to run an F1 team? F1 Car? Jordon Peugeot average racer salary is $5 Million to $20 Million $72,127 Benetton B196 travel for racing destinations is $3 Million $258,964 average annual cost of fuel and other consumables is $4 Million to $5 Million Schumachers Benetton (1994) $3.7 Million + PIT LANE Pit Crew members range in Salary from $35,000 to $90,000 per year Pay depends on level of racing and team's performance.

The system constantly adjusts pending on the speed of the car allowing for excellent stability at higher speeds $20.2 million $353.3 Million Budget WILLIAMS FI Red Bull in 2009 Red Bull pumped over $160m into its F1 Williams The Mercedes-Benz SLR sports car is fitted with high-performance ceramic brakes designed to handle faster speeds and hotter temperatures. This idea came directly from Fomula 1. account sponsored by Vodaphone ENERGY DEINE $443.8 Million Budget $304.6 Million Budget MCLaren Ferrari McLaren -1-- Other F1 Facts After each race, cars are stripped down and 150 diagnostic tests are carried out. The car's hydraulic system operates at a pressure of 3,000 psi, which is the kind of pressure experienced while diving to depths of 6,500 feet. The energy required to slow a car from 315kph to 185kph is the same amount needed to make an elephant jump 10 metres in the air! A Formula One driver burns approximately 1,200 calories per Grand Prix and loses on average two kilograms in weight. The drivers will typically change gear up to 2,800 times per Grand Prix. http://www.fitechnicalnet/features/8784 guide/59536/car parts/formula_one_technology_finds_its way_to bmw_road cars.html Time (seconds) (spuoɔəs) au
