Why is the speed of F1 cars so fast?

Is not every year by various means to limit the speed of it! How each year is also the fastest lap so close, really do not understand!

racing on continuous improvement of aerodynamics and improved, and all teams are now an issue in aerodynamics, such as 2009's BGP, precisely because the aerodynamic application, should success, leading the other teams 将近 1 second per lap time. Although the engine speed is limited, but the F1's technicians will always try to improve the speed in other areas. Now the aerodynamics technology to improve every year, so to some extent effective to help the car speed. Of course, now that the speed is still slow compared to 04,05 years, after all, to limit the engine speed is greater than the impact of aerodynamics.

one foot step ahead ah ah ah ah

Each year, this argument is the speed limit does not exist, but will withdraw from some technical limitations, such as limiting the number of times each game, tire replacement, limit the number of refueling, restrict the number of annual replacement of the engine, the situation on the replacement of the engine restrictions on engine size (simply means that the original V10 engine replaced now V8) were reduced to remove the traction control system, etc.

but with this Meanwhile, all major teams will change the body of the wind through the device decreases body resistance, reducing body weight, the introduction of advanced technologies (such as crose) and other killer to improve performance, it would say to the speed micro is normal

upper right, in each of reform, is nothing but big teams and small teams to reduce the distance between; However, for a large team, their technology is mature, especially in aerodynamics research, so that F1's minimize resistance, 2009, in the McLaren and BMW Sauber team used the "energy recovery system", into the corner close to, the curve up to speed naturally rise to the fastest.

In fact, speed is indeed in decline.

You can look at each lap the track list, you will find the most frequent one is:

Michael Schumacher Ferrari X minutes XX.XXX seconds, and then in 2004


Hu Anpaboluo Montoya X minutes XX.XXX second Williams in 2004

in fact, nearly a decade, the fastest car is in 2004. The only year after 2004, able to contend with the car appeared in 2007, so you can see this:

Lewis Hamilton McLaren X minutes XX.XXX seconds

Kimi Raikkonen 2007 X minutes XX.XXX seconds

2007 Ferrari F2004, but far less frightening.

You may look at lap times to see the speed difference is only 0.5 seconds, but you must be aware that, 0.5 seconds to lap the gap in the field is what F1 concept, which is already very difficult to cross a gap.

One foot law is strong, it is true, for example in 2009 the car is actually the slowest vertical comparison within a decade, but some teams with double-layer diffuser, in fact, suspected of using the ground effect, also develop KERS, short, basic technological limitations can bring the speed of the car's make up as much as possible.

However, restrictions on the engine and aerodynamic constraints, it is irreparable, so we can see that the case is 04 years later, the speed of the car is actually on the decline. But we are not racing, only to see that in our daily life is simply negligible 0.5 second to 1 second without Suansha, but the racers and teams of staff in the eyes, this is already a very long time.

Bugatti fast at the beginning did not!
Desire to Hong Kong Joey2010-04-15 17:09:57 +0000 #8
upstairs that, S, B, you know Sha Bugatti also know you, he accelerated quickly, does not mean that he is superior overall performance, to see the results Nurburgring circuit in the North Central to Replies

No was quick, fast speed in theory, but the actual track every now slower than before, more than 1s
