Its the dream of every male on the face on planet earth to, for the least, get behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car. This gives rise to a certain level of overconfidence too, even to the point where some believe that they could shred lap records if only they got the chance. But little thought do they give to the car itself. Neither did I until someone send me a couple of pictures of a ‘disected’ F1 car.
Did you know that the:
1)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!
2)Formula 1 cars have over a kilometre of cable, linked to about 100 sensors and actuators which monitor and control many parts of the car.
Well these are just some of the things i just learnt. And now for the pics.
