Recently, information about Formula 1 (F1) racing to Hanoi has attracted media attention. However, F1 is not just a race race, it has many interesting things that people do not know.
There are 2 F1 championships
Most people believe that the F1 has only one championship for the 21 races, but F1 really has two championships. The first celebrity champion was "Driver Champion", which ran for the biggest points in each race. The second championship is less popular than the "Builder Championship" for the car that won the highest points for the race. The reason is that the F1 teams have different car designs and are evaluated separately from race and race skills to win the championship.
Car F1 without gasoline
Unlike other races such as Nascar, F1 cars are not allowed to discharge gasoline while competing as well as when entering the pool. Instead, only tire or wings that have broken on the pool lane can only be replaced. This means that the racing car will have to calculate the amount of gas needed at the start of the race to the end of the leg. This regulation will be applied from 2010 to the present.
In some cases racing teams press less fuel than usual to reduce the weight of the car to get faster. Of course, they need to work out carefully if you do not want to run out of gas between the race.
The strategy plays a key role
In the F1 tournament, many people are mistakenly thinking that they are similar to other conventional car racing, focusing solely on driving and driver skills. In fact, F1 is a combination of driving skills and racing and vehicle design tactics. Former F1 racing was similar to other races with an emphasis on driving skills, the new innovation F1 was only when the author changed the legendary essence of Sen. Senna. The best riders must now fully study each race, set the strategy as well as the most suitable car design to win.
Increasingly "harmful electricity"
In the F1, the current car is much more modern than that of that. Faster speed, lighter material, lower chassis, wider wheels … Many electronic technologies have been applied to cars F1 to maximize racial performance. However, some technologies are exclusively banned, such as a traction management system, to provide real experience as well as some challenges for savers.
At present, all F1 racing cars only press 702kg, including the gas driver. In the meantime, the car's machine was only about two hours before exploding. Usually, the car engine has planned to run for about 20 years but F1 racing cars promote and modify the motor to run all the way in the race. A normal machine runs only 6,000 rpm but there are cars F1 up to 18,000 rpm.
With "electricity damage" technology, each F1 race can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4 seconds and on average each F1 race car can accelerate to 360 km / h in the race.
Although enthusiastic supporters, the media are looking for a series of long legs that want to be shaped or dated with the driver, in fact the control of the car in F1 is extremely tired, stressful. .
According to some surveys, the average F1 driver will lose 4 kg after entering the race due to pressure and stress. Of course, they were on holiday but they showed the job's stress. In addition, cars do not have air conditioning racing to reduce the weight of the car, causing temperatures in the car to rise to 50 degrees Celsius when the tires change tires, sometimes higher depending on the weather. race.
Studies have shown that a 4% reduction in body weight causes one adult to lose 40% of mental and physical efficiencies. This is the cause of the driver's support team to drink energy drinks when the tires replace the tires to water.
In the past, racing F1 was considered to be a very dangerous possession when there were a number of tragic accidents, killing or exacerbating disabled people with racers.
Choose a vehicle number
Since 2014, drivers can choose their own car. If they move the team, they can carry that number on their new car and keep their number for two years of the last race. In particular, the champion can choose number 1 for his car in the following race to pay tribute.
To protect the racers, cars have been designed so that they avoid the most serious injuries when they are an accident. F1 drivers hats are designed to resist temperatures up to 800 degrees Celsius, while their cars are at least 840 degrees Celsius to cope with collisions.
Origin of "Formula One"
F1 racing of the European Grand Prix Motorcycle started in the 1920s and 1930s. The word "formula" means the rules of racing that each driver must follow.
$ 6.8 million
The average price for collecting each race in F1 is around $ 6.8 million. Here is the price for the most basic car F1 equipment, not to mention the equipment, the latest technology that each team designs as well as being relevant to the car. In addition, all teams have to spend hundreds of millions to research and produce the most advanced technology for the race. Therefore, no F1 car of any team is the same, although they do not look different in mind.
Each F1 has at least 80,000 parts and must have 100% manual work to ensure absolute accuracy.
50 rings per second
Not only the racers, the tires also lose weight after each race. On average, all tires lose about 0.5 kg when they enter the piston line because of its wearing. Normal tires have been designed to run 60,000-100,000 kilometers, but racing tires have been designed to run 90-120km in order to maximize the speed of the race. At the highest speed, the average racing tires rotate about 50 rpm.
In the pile instead of the tires, employees spend about three seconds changing for a race race, a wonderful speed.
