Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between slicks and wets tires in F1 racing?

Formula 1’s slick tires were designed for dry conditions. Their large surface area ensures maximum contact and grip. Wet tire tread patterns, such as those on intermediates and complete wets reduce the risk for aquaplaning. In light to medium rain, intermediates should be used. Full wets will work in heavy rain.

How do Formula 1 teams move equipment between races and how can you help?

Formula 1 teams meticulously prepare the logistics of transporting their vehicles, parts, or equipment to all corners of the globe. Trucks are used for European races while air cargo is preferable for events that span long distances and occur overseas. Each team is equipped with a dedicated logistical division, which ensures that all items arrive on time and are in excellent condition.

How are Formula 1 cars built to ensure driver safety

Formula 1 cars incorporate cutting-edge safety technologies to protect their drivers. This includes a strong, carbon-fiber monocoque as well as the Halo cockpit-protection system, energy absorbent crash structures, advanced helmet technology, and a powerful, lightweight monocoque. Each component is rigorously test and adheres the strict safety standards set out by the FIA. Drivers are therefore protected from various types of impact.
