Well, now it's clear why this is more of an 'elite' sport.

May the best driver win - indeed... But !! NOT Nico Rosberg in 2017 - for he has forsaken any chance of retaining his world title - by retiring. Strange move ? Oh my Lord YES ! I mean wtf & why ! Peace. Rx
Many of these facts and photos are outdated...
1. Price is a few million more than shown.
2. Since the new turbo V6 era has begun the rev limit is 15,000rpm, however most cars only rev out to 12,000rpm due to the fuel flow rate rule.
3. F1 cars can do 0-100mph in 4 seconds, while this is still impressive it's not near as impressive as 0-100-0 in that time.
4. The large rims shown as he's talking about the brake temp is a prototype only and has never been used in any F1 event.
5. Modern F1 cars can produce around 4.5G in high speed corner, well above 3G.
6. Refueling has not even been a thing in F1 for years now.
Usual collection of bullshit. The "185 mph through the wall" is from Martin Brundle's joke. Everything else is just tabloid junk. Including the cost. Oh, and refuelling was banned FIVE YEARS before this "content" was uploaded. Typical click bait mass-made by someone who has no idea about the subject.
Anthony Mcqueen Having to be in peak physical condition isn't required to survive though it helps in the event of an accident. Being in peak physical condition is essential to drive quickly and consistently due to the forces placed on your body.
informative... but as a biker it's annoying when people use the rpm of a road car as a boast... most 4-600cc bikes will rev higher than f1 cars... Doesn't mean shit in the context used in this video. i.e. rpm directly relates to power.
2 of those facts are actuly incorect concidering the date this was uploadet. firstly the engine´s they curently (from 2014 onwards) use have got a rev-limit of 15k instead of the 18k mensiond in the video. aside from that they dont refeul the cars anymore during the race. this was banned at the end of 2009 deu to safety.
Quite a few of these facts were no longer true many years before this was made. F1 no longer refuels during races and doesn't use that type of rapid fueling equipment anymore. They now use Hybrid V6 engines revving up to 15,000 rpm, though most teams run conservatively around 12-13k rpms. Corning speeds now have the cars in excess of 4g's at some circuits. I'm sure there are some crazy interesting facts about their hybrid power units, acceleration and other things that apply to today's formula vs. the older cars the video references
''The force of deceleration is equal to hitting a brick wall at 185mph.'' No it isn't, because that would cause your organs to crash and compact into your bones. F1 drivers lie another day, that being proof. In fact none of your facts are true.
I think that fact was just poorly worded. Crashing THROUGH a brick wall, meaning you don't suddenly stop (and die). I imagine there's quite a large "punch" when they hit the brakes, which is what they poorly conveyed.
Because you added some random facts to show how good certain aspects are you should have mentioned that the engine is so fast that you can actually use it to play music, proof of this is when Richard Hammond drove an f1 car and to celebrate they made the engine produce a song
The base entry fee for a Formula 1 season is 500,000 USD. The team that won the Constructors' Championship from last season has to pay an additional 6,000 USD for each point scored and the other teams have to pay and additional 5,000 USD for each point scored.
This season Mercedes had to pay an entry fee of $4,781,000
+atjays It's a rough estimate because the real number are 516,128 USD for the base fee and the constructors' champion has to pay 6,194 USD for each point earned from last season, while the other teams had to pay 5,161 USD for each point earned from last season. Mercedes had to pay 4,870,510 USD to compete in the 2016 season
It's different, so what? LMP1 at Le Mans are different (no tire management f. e.), bike races are different, dragster races are (which are waaaaay faster then F1), truck races are and so on.
I can't see, how such an easy term like "motor sport" has to be in interpreted.
+DaveMcIroy First of all... Your*
And the reason why i think this can't be compared is because Car racing is completely different. There are racing lines in car racing, there is fuel and tire management, there are racing strategies, there is car balancing and so much more. It's not really the same with plane stunting (or racing, if that exists).
You're analogy is wrong, cause no one said anything about fuel. Otherwise a diesel generator would count as well.
Is acrobatic flying a sport? Yes. Is a motor necessary? Yes. Well, you got motor sport. That simple.
Each revolution of the crankshaft (flywheel too) corresponds to each piston travelling two strokes, i.e. up and down. 18,000 rev/min = 18,000/60 rev/sec = 300 rev/sec => two strokes, one up, one down (piston goes back to where it started twice), 300 times per second. Professional engine engineer :)
Some actual weird facts:
1 · The prize pot is not given based only in results. Things like prestige and years in the sport make the money go to 1 way or the other. Most of the years Ferrari is the one that gets the most money out of F1's prize pot even if they had been 3rd best or even 4th best manufacturer
2 · Williams, one of the biggest F1 teams of all time, originally started modifying other F1 cars for customers
3 · The Brabham team once tried to use snowmobile-powered vacuums to suck the air from beneath the car to greatly increase downforce and also make it non-dependent on speed like wings do. It won its only GP ever, lots of people complained about certain safety and rulebook issues and it was banned
4 · There were a few 6-wheel F1 cars back in the day. They were not very successful and were banned in the end. Nowadays a F1 car can only have 4 wheels
5 · In the 90s, back when driving aids were now and they were seen as _cool_, some teams managed to create cars with active suspension. Engineers would program the car to rise, lower, lean and other stuff depending on the place of the track. There is a Youtube video of Williams F1 car moving on its own while stopped while nobody is inside and it is CREEPY
6 · F1 races have not been around 307km (except for Monaco and others) forever. The typical race length stood at around 360km (Monaco was around 300km) for quite some time
7 · The only continent to have never hold a F1 race is Antarctica. There were GPs in South Africa and even Morocco for quite some years
8 · The calendar has had a lot of changes since the beginning. Some seasons have started as soon as mid January or as late as May and have finished as late as late December (28th!!!) or as soon as September
9 · First season with only street circuits and _proper_ racing tracks? 1971. There were 9 racing tracks plus 2 street circuits (Monaco and Montjuich, in Barcelona, Spain)
10 · Even though some of the turbo engines made as much as 1200hp, drivers usually short shifted and never used those numbers on the racing surface, not even during their qualifying efforts
11 · There have been many many qualifying formats over the years, with the most changes happening during the 21st century
12 · _Tyre wars_ happened until the last 2 companies involved (Michelin & Bridgestone) thought the money spent on developing tyres was too much and decided to drop out
13 · Between 1957 and 1970 at least 1 driver died while competing in F1
14 · There used to be non-championship F1 races. In those races teams competed for money and smaller trophies. In some races only small teams would sign up giving them the chance to win a _F1 race_
15 · Not many years ago scoring a point was a lot harder and championship battles were quite unfair since drivers would get 10-6-4-3-2-1, then it was changed to the more fair 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 and the current point system is fairly similar to the older one (similar proportion) but now the top10 cars score points
16 · Only 2 women have ever started a F1 race. Lella Lombardi once scored 0,5 points by finishing 6th in the shortened 1975 Spanish GP. Her teammate finished a lapped ahead of her after he qualified 5th and she qualified 24th. 18 people retired from that race
On a roadcourse nothing is faster. If F1 cars were allowed to go around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval they would be probably 10-15% faster than the Indycars have ever been and I am talking about nowadays, let alone during the 3000cc V10 days of 2004
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
