There are two kinds of lift and I'm not sure which you're referring to. The answer will be one of the following:
- Aerodynamic lift: the wings on the F1 car don't actually produce lift. They are turned upside down so the "lift" goes DOWN instead, pressing the car into the road and increasing grip. It is known as downforce, and the car will produce approximately three times its weight in downforce at it's normal racing speed of 100mph.
- Accelerator lift: this is when the driver lifts off the accelerator. The result is that the car slows down a little, in exchange for a fair increase in mechanical grip from the tyres - they can use their grip to turn instead of accelerate.
F1 is great but it depends whether your interested in cars and racing or not!
No but the F1 cars have a flappy paddle gearbox.
new regulations in 2009 limited the revs from 19,000rpm to 18,000rpm
F1 cars need friction for their brakes, if they didn't have friction on there brakes then it wouldn't be able to brake.
The F1 races are for Formula 1 cars only.
No, definitely not.
No. F1 are slowest than a Veyron but accelerate quicker. However, F1 cars are electronically limited.
about 15psi or 1.1bar.
They are made in Italy.
