A Formula One automobile is a single-seat, open-cockpit, open-wheel formula racing car with large front and rear wings and an engine behind the driver that is designed to compete in Formula One races.
All F1 vehicles can accelerate from 0 to 100 mph (160 kmph) in less than 5 seconds and decelerate to 0 in less than 5 seconds. F1 cars have clocked high speeds of around 300 kilometers per hour, or 185 miles per hour on average, as per tutorials point reports.
Let’s understand what makes F1 cars super-fast. F1 vehicles currently use semi-automatic sequential carbon titanium gearboxes with 8 forward gears and 1 reverse gear with rear-wheel drive.
Before understanding what is inside the gearbox, it is important to know where it is positioned on the F1 car. The tub, which is made of carbon fibre, is located in the front of the Formula One car, where the driver sits.
The engine is then connected directly to the tub on four studs behind that. The gearbox is attached directly to the engine behind the engine. The gearbox’s front casing is built of cast magnesium. The main shaft, which emerges from the top of the gearbox, is housed within the casing.
The gearbox oil tank is located on the top, inside the gearbox case. All of the collected oil is then sprayed into the gearbox oil tank, where it is distributed throughout the rest of the gearbox.
We have the main shaft and the layshaft after removing the nuts and removing the oil tank.
The main shaft is turned by the layshaft that runs across the bottom. The layshaft is the part of the engine that is attached to it, and the engine is what drives it. The gears do not actually rotate away from the shaft. They’re splined straight into the shaft.
The first gear is the smallest. With these gears, we have the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh. The engine’s power powers the layshaft, which spins all of the gears on this upper shaft.
