Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between slick and wet tires in F1?

Slick tires in Formula 1 are designed for dry conditions, and their smooth surface area provides maximum contact with the track, offering the highest levels of grip. Wet tire tread patterns, such as those on intermediates and complete wets reduce the risk for aquaplaning. While full wets work best in heavy rain, intermediates can handle light to moderate rain.

How does weather affect Formula 1 races

The weather can affect tire selection, car setup and strategy. Rain can lead to treacherous track conditions, causing drivers to switch to wet or intermediate tires. The teams must be ready to react quickly to changing circumstances, while drivers should show skill and caution. Temperature fluctuations can have an impact on engine performance as well as tire wear. This can drastically alter the course a race.

What are power unit in Formula 1 cars

A Formula 1 engine consists of a hybrid Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and Energy Recovery System (ERS). The ICE, a turbocharged 6-cylinder engine, is paired with an Energy Recovery System (ERS) that uses energy captured from the vehicle’s exhaust and braking systems to generate additional power. Combining both technologies increases not only the performance of the car but also its efficiency.

Can Formula 1 race cars refuel in the middle of a race?

As of the current regulations, mid-race refueling is banned in Formula 1. This rule was implemented in 2010 to increase safety and lower costs. Cars must start a race with enough fuel for the entire distance. Teams must also balance the fuel weight against the speed and efficiency of the car.
