Article of Honda R&D Technical Review F1 Special (The third Era Activities)

Summary

When developing Formula One chassis, reducing weight while still satisfying the functions and requirements of each part was an issue for chassis design. The authors took into account the degree of contribution to circuit lap time, and found a balance between functions and weight reduction during chassis development. The method used consisted of reviewing materials and structures, and the weight of chassis parts was successfully reduced.
This paper introduces various examples of weight reduction.
