Formula 1 Driver Weights - F1 Drivers - KERS
How much does a Formula 1 driver weigh? What is the ideal height? These are questions that have not been heard for a few years in a sport where the best drivers used to be like horse racing jockeys. But thanks to a new technology called KERS introduced in 2009, the question of driver heights and weights came back again - more relevant than ever.

Carbon Fiber Chassis - Formula 1 Racing
A revolution in racing car body materials in the early 1980s led to the standard Formula 1 racing car chassis of today. No longer made of a metal, today's F1 cars are made of an ultra light and strong plastic-like material called carbon fiber, which used to be more associated with the aerospace industry than with racing cars. Formula 1 engineers have become so adept at working with carbon composite materials, however, that other industries now turn to it for advice.

How the Formula 1 Teams Travel the World
For the first time in Formula 1 history, in 2012 seven races were staged in nine weeks, with a series of three so-called flyaways and races taking place one week apart instead of the usual two weeks.The final Grands Prix were run in Asia, the Middle East and in North and South America.

Formula 1 Car Engines - Maker Renault
Car engines hold little interest for most people. Even Formula 1 fans generally prefer to talk about a sexy new aerodynamic wing on the chassis than a modified piston. Yet in the words of Rob White, the director of the Renault team's engine department, it is the thing that turns the sleek, inanimate racing car into a vital force.

F1 Brakes Designed for Speed as Well as Slowing Down
We generally think of car brakes as designed to make a car slow down. But in Formula 1, the first thought of the drivers and engineers is how to use the brakes - like almost every other one of the vehicle's 3,000 parts - to make the car go faster.

Why Aren't There Women Drivers in F1?
In what is essentially considered a macho sport, there are a few women who are breaking the mold in Formula 1, where, as is the tradition elsewhere in auto racing, they usually occupy marketing, media relations and hospitality jobs. While more women than ever work the technical jobs to make the cars go fast, the one area where they are still absent is behind the steering wheel.

Formula 1's Kinetic Energy Recovery System
In 2009 as part of Formula 1's effort to become more environmentally friendly and relevant, the series began using a Kinetic Energy Recovery System to collect energy normally wasted during braking, and to re-use it in short bursts of power to increase speed and help in overtaking.

Alain Prost Profile - Formula 1 World Driver Champion - McLaren - Ferrari - Williams
Alain Prost, a Frenchman, was the first Formula 1 driver after Juan Manuel Fangio of the 1950s to win four world championship titles. Fangio had won five titles, ending in 1958, and no other driver did better than three until Prost won his fourth title in 1993 at the Williams team. Prost was particularly famous as one of a dueling tandem, the other of whom was Ayrton Senna, who won three titles.

Albert Park Circuit - Formula 1 Race Track - Australian Grand Prix
On a track located in a grassy park within commuting distance of the city center, the Australian Grand Prix at Melbourne has always been a favorite for most of the Formula 1 teams, drivers and the thousands of people that follow around the world’s largest travelling circus. South of Melbourne, the circuit began hosting the Australian Grand Prix in 1996. With the many chicanes, abrupt corners and bumpy surface of this is a challenging street circuit, most of the races have been interesting.

Physical Preparation of F1 Driver - Racing
Formula 1 drivers undergo physical demands in the cockpit of a kind that no other athlete faces. G-Forces throughout an hour-and-a-half race make their heads four to five times their regular weight, and they must make split-second decisions that could cost them or others their lives while enduring intense heat, humidity and vibrations from the engine and the track.

F1 Pole Position - F1 Race Strategy - How a Formula 1 Race Works
It used to be that the man who scored pole position was almost certain to win the race. But now in Formula 1 the value of the pole and qualifying in general seem to have diminished as the fastest drivers have rarely been those who finish the race in the top spots.

F1 Safety Car - Bernd Maylander - Racing Strategy
Formula 1 teams use any method to win. They build factories costing hundreds of millions of dollars that house wind tunnels operated by top engineers to streamline cars worth millions that are driven by the finest drivers in the world. They even use a new factor: the safety car.
