F1 facts you may not know

 An F1 car is made up of 80,000 components, if it were assembled 99.9% correctly, it would still start

the race with 80 things wrong!

 When an F1 driver hits the brakes on his car he experiences retardation or deceleration comparable

to a regular car driving through a BRICK wall at 300kmph!!!

 F1 car can go from 0 to 160 kph AND back to 0 in FOUR seconds!!!!!!!

 F1 car engines last only for about 2 hours of racing mostly before blowing up on the other hand we

expect our engines to last us for a decent 20 yrs on an average and they quite faithfully DO....that's

the extent to which the engineers pushed it to perform..

 An average F1 driver loses about 4kgs of weight after just one race due to the prolonged exposure to

high G forces and temperatures for little over an hour (Yeah that's right!!!)

 At 550kg a F1 car is less than half the weight of a Mini.

 To give you an idea of just how important aerodynamic design and added down force can be, small

planes can take off at slower speeds than F1 cars travel on the track.

 Without aerodynamic down force, high-performance racing cars have sufficient power to produce

wheel spin and loss of control at 160 kph. They usually race at over 300 kph.

 In a street course race like the Monaco grand prix, the down force provides enough suction to lift

manhole covers. Before the race all of the manhole covers on the streets have to be welded down to

prevent this from happening!

 The refuelers used in F1 can supply 12 liters of fuel per second. This means it would take just 4 seconds

to fill the tank of an average 50 liter family car. They use the same refueling rigs used on US military

Helicopters today.

 TOP F1 pit crews can refuel and change tires in around 3 seconds. It took me 8 sec to read above point.

 During the race the tires lose weight! Each tire loses about 0.5 kg in weight due to wear.

 Normal tires last 60 000 - 100 000 km. Racing tires are designed to last 90 - 120 km.

 A dry-weather F1 tire reaches peak operating performance (best grip) when tread temperature is

between 900C and 1200C.(Water boils at 100C remember). At top speed, F1 tires rotate 50 times a second.
