Maybe we need to have a field trip to the Design Museum:
Thrilling, seductive and addictive, Formula One is among the world’s most popular sports. Formula One is also an intensely secretive industry that invests hundreds of millions of pounds every year on design and technology – with £500 million spent by the racing teams to optimise their engines alone.
For the first time the public can discover the design innovations at the heart of the sport in this Design Museum exhibition featuring iconic cars and compelling deconstructions of F1 technology. An F1 car consists of over 10,000 components requiring 4,000 drawings and accuracy to within a tenth of a millimetre. As well as exploring the history of F1 design, the exhibition will explore how billions of pounds has been invested in design and technology in order to make the cars ever faster and safer.
