This infographic contains just about every piece of information you would ever need to know about a Formula 1 car. How much it costs, down to each individual part, including how much it costs to own an F1 car over the entire time you won it, how the car works, and how much it costs to run an F1 team. I’m not going to get down to the nitty-gritty, since everything is explained so well in the infographic. I’ll just mention a few key facts and get to the scorecard.
This is a UK infographic, so all the numbers are in Pounds. All in all, it costs almost five million pounds to buy and run an F1 automobile. Why are they so expensive? Each piece is designed for optimum performance. Certain parts of the car are designed to reduce drag, and 80% of the car’s grip comes from aerodynamics.
A Formula 1 car can go from 0 to 124 mph in 2.21 seconds.
As for running a racing team, you have to pay racer salaries in the millions, travel costs in the millions, fuel costs in the millions, and pit crew salaries on top of everything else.
These impressive cars come with a hefty price tag, but they are super cool and so is this infographic.
I didn’t love the color choices, but I liked the layout.
