Formula One Racing Cars: Design Features

To achieve fuel efficiency, a car joining the Formula One should come up with an aerodynamic design. Aerodynamic designs are similar to those that are commonly used for fighter jets. The only thing that makes it different from a Formula One car is the fact that the fighter jet leaves the ground while the Formula One car does not.

Another important design that should be found in a Formula One car is a down force that firmly holds the tire on the ground surface. A tight grip on the ground or on the race track is the benefit of a car that comes with such kind of design. Formula One confirms that tires and down force are essential components of safety and speed.

Formula One cars should also come up with brake designs that are specially made. Basically, you will find the brakes to be mush similar to stock road vehicles. However, these cars come with components that are more extraordinary. This is due to the fact that these cars usually work at high speeds which simply mean they come up with high temperatures.

Overall, the engine comes with a light weight design, powerful, and efficient which is indeed a very tall order.
