Why Formula 1 Cars Don’t Have Airbags

You’re walking along the street, thinking sweet thoughts when you hear – bang! A car crash! Luckily, both drivers are unharmed thanks to the airbags, which activated just in time! But can airbags even save the lives of Formula 1 drivers who accelerate their cars to mind-bending speeds? They probably could… if there were airbags in F1 race cars!

Yep! F1 drivers don’t have any need for airbags. Pretty shocking, huh? So let’s get into the detail: high speeds, mind-blowing circuit turns, huge chances of a crash, and no airbags needed? Exactly!

SUMMARY:
– There’s simply no way an airbag could fit in. And even if it did, the cockpit of the vehicle is so tiny that an activated airbag would probably smother the driver to death!
– In fact, drivers are positioned in their seats so tightly that they can’t even fasten all these seat belts on their own; a mechanic must do it for them.
– We mustn’t forget about F1 drivers’ sensational helmets! These helmets must go through serious trials. For example, a helmet has to withstand a penetration test, when a 6.5 pound pointed metal object gets dropped onto the helmet from the height of 10 ft.
– The tires of a Formula One car rotate so fast that they get blazing-hot during racing.
– To make a Formula One racing car, you need to put together more than 80,000 components! (And in the right order at that!) It’s crucial that the makers assemble the car 100% correctly.
– Made from an indestructible kind of carbon fiber, the F1 disc brakes allow the vehicle to come from full speed to a complete halt in a mere 4 seconds!
– The suction a Formula One car produces is great enough to rip these huge metal discs right out of the street and shoot them into the sky!
– It takes just 3 seconds for the pit crew to change the tires and refuel a Formula One car.
– The average basic cost of a Formula One car is about $10 million! The car’s engine alone can cost from $7 to $10 million; a fuel tank’s price tag varies from $100,000 to $140,000, and you’ll pay $220,000 for the cooling system and $250,000 for the transmission.
– An F1 driver loses up to 9 pounds (4 kg) after just two hours of racing. It’s mostly due to the scorching temperatures in the cockpit: during the race, it may get as hot as 122 °F (50 °C) inside.
