FORMULA 1 CARS __________________________________________________________________________ 
 
1. INTRODUCTION
Car racing is one of the most technologically advanced sports in theworld today. Race Cars are the most sophisticated vehicles that we see incommon use. It features exotic, high-speed, open-wheel cars racing allaround the world. The racing teams have to create cars that are flexibleenough to run under all conditions.
 
This level of diversity makes a season of F1 car racing incredibly exciting. The teams have to completely revise theaerodynamic package, the suspension settings, and lots of other parameterson their cars for each race, and the drivers have to be extremely agile tohandle all of the different conditions they face. Their carbon fiber bodies,incredible engines, advanced aerodynamics and intelligent electronics makeeach car a high-speed research lab. A F1 Car runs at speeds up to 240 mph,the driver experiences G-forces and copes with incoming data so quickly thatit makes Car driving one of the most demanding professions in the sportingworld. F1 car is an amazing machine that pushes the physical limitations of automotive engineering.
 
On the track, the driver shows off his professionalskills by directing around an oval track at speedsFormula One Grand Prix racing is a glamorous sport where a fractionof a second can mean the difference between bursting open the bubbly andstruggling to get sponsors for the next season's competition. To gain thoseextra milliseconds, all the top racing teams have turned to increasinglysophisticated network technology.Much more money is spent in F1 these days. This results highest techcars. The teams are huge and they often fabricate their entire racers.
 
F1'saudience has grown tremendously throughout the rest of the world. .In an average street car equipped with air bags and seatbelts,occupants are protected during 35-mph crashes into a concrete barrier. But at180 mph, both the car and the driver have more than 25 times more energy.All of this energy has to be absorbed in order to bring the car to a stop. This isan incredible challenge, but the cars usually handle it surprisingly wellF1 Car driving is a demanding sport that requires precision, incrediblyfast reflexes and endurance from the driver. A driver's heart rate typicallyaverages 160 beats per minute throughout the entire race. During a 5-G turn,a driver's arm -- which normally weighs perhaps 20 pounds -- weighs theequivalent of 100 pounds.
 
One thing that the G forces require is constanttraining in the weight room. Drivers work especially on muscles in the neck,shoulders, arms and torso so that they have the strength to work against theGs. Drivers also work a great deal on stamina, because they have to be ableto perform throughout a three-hour race without rest. One thing that is knownabout F1 Car drivers is that they have extremely quick reflexes and reactiontimes compared to the norm. They also have extremely good levels of concentration and long attention spans. Training, both on and off the track,can further develop these skills.
