Formula One – Ultimate Racing Machines
A Formula One car is a single-seat, open cockpit, open-wheel racing car with substantial front and rear wings, and an engine positioned behind the driver, intended to be used in competition at Formula One racing events. The regulations governing the cars are unique to the championship. The Formula One regulations specify that cars must be constructed by the racing teams themselves, though the design and manufacture can be outsourced
The modern day Formula One cars are constructed from composites of carbon fibre and similar ultra-lightweight materials. The minimum weight permissible is 642 kg (1,415 lb) including the driver but not fuel. Cars are weighed with dry-weather tyres fitted. Prior to the 2014 F1 season, cars often weighed in under this limit so teams added ballast in order to add weight to the car. The advantage of using ballast is that it can be placed anywhere in the car to provide ideal weight distribution. This can help lower the car’s centre of gravity to improve stability and also allows the team to fine tune the weight distribution of the car to suit individual circuits.

"without regulations we could build an F1 car that could go 300mph" Come on FIA, create a racing serie which have no regulations! That would be the best way to develop technology and to entertain the audience.
Mini and their founder, Mr Cooper were NOT the first to position the engine behind the driver…

@mikeday, they don't inhale it as they are crashing at high speeds and wear helmets, the dust cloud gets left behind
The 2004 F1 cars were the pinnacle of performance, absolute monsters

I hate the new cars. I can't watch it anymore.
