F1 journalist David Tremayne unravels the mysteries of modern Grand Prix car design in this all-colour book. Using information gleaned from the sport's leading designers, the authoritative, extensively illustrated text, written with the armchair enthusiast in mind, explains just how a Formula 1 car works. The philosophy and technology behind the chassis, engine, transmission, electronics, steering, suspension, brakes, tyres and aerodynamics are analysed and the important question of how these parts and systems interact is explored, providing An insight into the secretive technology-driven world of Formula 1 car design.

The book covers: chassis construction - composite materials, how chassis strength influences performance, aerodynamic influences and safety aspects; the engine - the reasons for adopting the V10 layout, the forces involved, the search for ever-higher revs, how fuels and oils contribute to performance; the transmission - basic gearbox principles, gearbox design, electro-hydraulic actuation, the differential, driveshafts; electronics - how this most important factor influences so many areas, including the engine, transmission and telemetry; steering, suspension and brakes; tyres - why different tyres exert so much influence on performance; aerodynamics - basic theory, what individual components do, and how aerodynamic changes are made; and how all the various elements interact, and how F1 cars are tested.

Good coffee-table reading 12. Mai 2008
Von Shashikant Penumarthy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As promised by the title, this book provides lots of information about the technology that goes into Formula 1 cars. The writing is easy to read, the photographs and sketches are well-chosen, of good quality and easy to follow. Even the constant struggle between politics, technical evolution and the need to keep the playing field level finds its place in the book.

Now that the Super Aguri F1 team has gone, if you are wondering just why the sport is so expensive, you'll find the answer here-supported by some impressive statistics.

The only downside to this book is that the author has used copious amounts of interview material verbatim. If you've seen how F1 mechanics, bosses and drivers talk during an interview, you know there is very little real meat in their words. Unfortunately this makes the book sound like an extended press-release at times.

Beware of some fairly technical passages-you will need to have some knowledge of how cars work in order to understand them.

Great Up to Date Reference 15. Januar 2007
Von rkrispie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a Formula 1 fan I was thrilled to find this well-written and very current book on the cars. Recommended to those who follow the sport -- and those who want to learn about the cars with information current as of the 2006 season.
excellent introduction to the design of F1 cars-great pictures 13. Mai 2013

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
a comprehensive guide for anyone trying to enter the world of F1 cars. Principles and main ideas behind design concepts and hi quality close ups on a variety of cars.The book provides insight on basic principles regarding aerodynamics, suspension system, brakes and engine without going into depth. If you are interested for an introduction its worth every penny spent, if you've allready read other technical manuals regarding F1 cars you may want to look for something more sophisticated.
