Formula 1 Technology

Author Peter Wright identifies and outlines five parameters -- Power, Weight, Tire Grip, Drag and Lift -- and shows how each can be maximized. In addition, he describes the variety of technologies (including those that have been banned over the years) that are involved, not just in the makeup of the Formula 1 cars, but also in the component manufacturing, systems testing, and the actual racing of the cars.

"Though the book is now 11 years out of date, it is a vital read if you want to really understand the non-political side of Formula 1. And there is no one better than Wright to plow through the various levels of detail that make up this series that occupies the Sundays of so large a segment of the world's population." - The Virtual Driver
