Go to Germany, you can drive a Formula 1 car in Nürburing :) It's not cheap, but it looks like an unique experience
You missed to explain why it's called Formula One. Hint: why are all F1 cars (for a given year) look alike?

I learnt a lot from this Thanks Engineering explained

could you explain the aerodynamics of sidepods, front wing?
Myasa Man
That intake port is not like a ram air intake :) It's designed like a diffuser. When the high velocity air rushes through that hole, the widening shape of it is designed to slow down and expand the air, and effectively cooling the air because of it.
Can someone please point me to a video that teaches me about F1 besides the goddamn tire rule change?

i think the fuel tank is divided to reduce the free surface effect of the partially full gas tank
Formula 1 design is by rules. It is a flawed design when you consider track times and top speed. A full bodied car is better from aerodynamic viewpoint and safety. Open wheeled cars are dangerous when tires contact causing flying cars.Keeping all parts of the car under a shell allows best controll of airflow-pressure and maximizes downforce where needed.
When autoplay is enabled, a suggested video will automatically play next.
