We’re kidding a bit, the shape of the F1 car has its roots somewhere.
Let's get off the carriage behind the horse-drawn carriage.
The carriage is harnessed with two rows of stable cattle,
therefore the roads, and thus the cars, are of a certain width.
That width of space for two people offers.
Horses retire, but roads and people remain the same.
In early cars the front wheels were out,
eventually covered by fenders.
The nose of the car is narrow and then goes wider and wider to the cab.
The car is longer because it needs space for a large displacement engine.
There was a revolution between the two world wars:
Racing cars enter the big door.
Now everything becomes clear, no more confusion,
from now on there are normal cars and they are just for racing.
The shape will remain similar to an Indian boat for a long time:
body narrower than axle and radiator on bow.
Who has a very lush imagination
see that this form has also experienced the present semi-current.
The first racing cars were monsters in length and height
for this we blame huge engines ridiculous in volume.
At that time, the opposite rules were in force:
the car must not be too heavy on the vase.
Two factors led to a gradual reduction in size:
more advanced engines and artificial tracks that have curves.
The first season of F1 welcomed such cars in the shape of a cigar.
Development was slow, racers winning were years old.
The real revolution of the late fifties arrives:
the driver has no gimbal between his legs so he can sit lower.
This is due to the engine moving behind the pilot,
to this day, this concept is on the trail.
The next revolution was
When the cars got wings.
There was no sure place to hang the wings,
but thrust is essential for both front and rear wheels.
By the end of the sixties
the front wing is still bothered by the cooler.
"Side-pod" on the sides of the car puts Chapman Collin.
The radiator should be close to the engine - others salt their brains.
Just around that time
the air intake comes to the driver above the scalp.
"Airbox" should be as much as possible
that the engine breathes fresh air.
Practically already in the seventies we have the right formulas:
tubs with holes on the sides and above the head.
In the XNUMXs, we see the return of this concept
after the cars swell in the XNUMXs due to the ground-effect.
The only detail that remains
is a high nose that gives aero-benefits.
We came to today's car.
Everything makes sense - nothing is taken off.
Radiator openings protect the driver if someone touches him from the side,
and engine suction in case it bleeds.
The head is guarded by a little more so-called "hello".
