Yes. They use V8 engines
Most f1 cars have about 8-9 hundred horsepower but horsepower is limited andall the cars in one race have the same horsepower so one car doesn't go faster than another and it is a fair race.
The 2010 and 2011 F1 cars have 8 cylinders in their engine. They are called V8 engines. They are naturally aspirated (no turbo charging) and they are 2.4 litres in size. They are limited to 19000 rpm in order to increase engine reliability and to avoid engine accidents during races.
Modern cars usually have either 4, 6, or 8 cylinders. Modern semis usually have either 12 or 16 cylinders. Early cars have had as few as 1 cylinder to as many as 20 cylinders! It all depends on the design.

The more cylinders there are the more power the engine produces. That's why a bigger vehicle like a truck has 8 cylinders while a small compact car that doesn't weigh very much has a 4 cylinder.

The Chevrolet 350 ci motors traditionally have 8 cylinders. There are examples of race-prepped v6 motors that have been built to that size, but those are a rare and expensive item to find.
8 =========================== Chevy's 4.3L engine is essentially their 350 - 8 cyl with 2 cylinders removed, so it is actually a large 6 cylinder engine. Came into use with their Astro vans, and then made it into the cars.
It has 6 cylinders in the motor that turn the crankshaft that connects to the transmission that puts the power to the wheels. Motors in cars can have 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10,12 or 16 cylinders
All cars that use i4s, v6s, i6s, v8s, v12, w12, etc all have cylinders, because they use the same kind of engine as the vast majority of cars. The only modern car that I know of that doesn't have any cylinders is the Mazda RX-8, which uses a different kind of engine called a rotary engine (GOOGLE IT)
