For those of you newer to Formula One, there is a weight you need to be aware of…640 kgs. The weight of an F1 car is critical and yet, it’s sometimes difficult to understand the weight without a reference. I thought you might like to know a few simple things about a Formula 1 car and it’s weight. Enjoy.

In terms of power and distance, yeah, you’re right. In terms of time……not so much. Then again, does anyone really worry about how much fuel is consumed per second?

What a shame you will need to re-record this episode. The change to this year’s tyres means the weight has gone up to 642kg for 2013. ;)

What I’d like to know is what’s the actual weight of an F1 car without the driver, fluids and ballast.
My guess would be around the 400Kg mark, no? Been looking into this info and can’t find a definitive answer.
Would be a good thing to talk about with Paul and/or Conor, Derek. I don’t know Todd, you have lots of connections that could answer that question! :) I’d really like to know!

Great video Todd. Very well done, both technically and with the writing, not to mention with you as the “star”. To do a job this well is much much harder than it looks. Even harder than a monkey winning the WDC in a Newey designed car … oh wait, that makes it sound easy :)
