The contribution of F1 in vehicle engineering

From its early beginnings, F1 has always been at the forefront of technology and engineering, with teams constantly looking for ways to gain an advantage over their competitors. This has led to the development of many groundbreaking innovations that have not only improved the performance of F1 cars but also transformed the automotive industry.

As a result, F1 has become a driving force behind the evolution of automotive technology, shaping how we drive, race, and innovate. In this article, we will explore the significant contributions that the sport has made to automotive innovation.

Braking systems
