Great book to know how technology relates to racing cars
on August 4, 2000
When first started my search looking for resources that better talk about "the inside story" of why F1 cars are constantly faster and more maneuverable, I found this title. Personally never thought it would give me more than I already knew on this issue, but this material gets you truly into what you ever wanted to know, giving you something extra. It tells you about many of the key elements to establish a competitive F1 car, in a very understandable manner, starting with the chassis conception and construction through the cockpit environment. Also taking care of the aerodynamics, engines, brakes, transmissions, suspension, wheels and tires, giving you also a great idea of which and why every chassis must take crash testing too, as an increasingly important issue for the FIA. However, it doesn't comply with the latest technology, because it reviews 97 & 98 seasons with its technology elements, but pretty much gives you the picture. I found great value added items, the many pictures used are all in great color and related to the topic of the section, the great quality on the printed materials, and the text was very good linked within itself. If you're looking for a bibliography about open wheel racing technology, and not so complicated, you should consider this book.
