Spare 11 minutes and 59 seconds of your life to witness the Greatest Innovations in Formula One Racing that changed the way you drive daily…
We drenched in the flavour of automotive passion like to believe that this industry is run by passion and we aren’t that far from reality as well. However, there is a part of this industry that talks about profits, ROI’s, and bottom lines and that is where we meet the dark side. No offence, but no matter how passionate one might be for a new technology or a new idea, it is almost always the dreaded accountants who need to clear the investment to make it happen. It is an undeniably hard task to get the green paper flow from these tough as hell number crunching people. Still, no matter how uninterested our humble friends from the finance department are in motorsports, they still cannot deny the possibility of new technology R&D through racing.
The automotive world owes a staggering number of technological innovations to Formula One Racing without which have transformed road going machinery. These advancements have arrived, in body construction, performance, fuel efficiency, safety and electronics to say the least. Formula One is not just a showcase of highest level of competitive racing but it also is a breeding ground of technological innovations and engineering marvels. It is from Formula One Racing we got magical new materials such as carbon fibre for lighter body panels and component construction, it was Formula One Racing that gave us energy regenerative technologies and not to mention the incredible growth in aerodynamic understanding and electronics that now control every single aspect of our daily commutes.
