basically they don't have springs and use pnuematic cylinders to open and close the valves.... springs would never last, that was one of the biggest accomplishments i believe in f1... everything else depends on those motors spinning 19k, but with the new motor rules, i don't know how long those motors can live, they want them to last two races when most don't last one... should be interesting to watch... i went to indy two years ago with a buddy who works for marlboro as a rep and we got all access passes to the ferrari pits, i don't even think trick was the word for it, we got to see everything, but no cameras....

Light pistons and rods are right. You put them on the table and the slight breeze a person makes when walking by will blow them like paper.

Well not quite but you get my point.

i read an f1 magizine that stated a few teams were making pistons and blocks out of beryllium but when i looked it up it is a highly toxic metal(unobtainum)

that is correct... i think it is even worse when being machined... nothing on a f1 car is "normal" high performance stuff...

i've been aroudna few vintage (mid 90s) f1 cars at the prep shop i use for my formula cars (abtou 10000000 steps removed from f1) and and even the older cars are ridiculous.

Berylium jesus. thats pretty out there. Hey when you have a huge budget and an owner with a bigger ego who has to win you try anything that might give you an edge!

Engine power outputs in Formula One racing are also a fascinating insight into how far the sport has moved on. In the 1950s Formula One cars were managing specific power outputs of around 100 bhp / litre (about what a modern 'performance' road car can manage now). That figure rose steadily until the arrival of the 'turbo age' of 1.5 litre turbo engines, some of which were producing anything up to 750 bhp / litre. Then, once the sport returned to normal aspiration in 1989 that figure fell back, before steadily rising again. The 'power battle' of the last few years has seen outputs creeping back towards the 1000 bhp barrier, some teams producing more than 300 bhp / litre from the current generation of 3 litre engines.
Revving to over 18,000 RPM a modern Formula One engine will consume a phenomenal 650 litres of air every second, with race fuel consumption typically around the 75 l/100 km (4 mpg) mark. Revving at such massive speeds equates to an accelerative force on the pistons of nearly 9000 times gravity. Unsurprisingly, engine failure remains one of the most common causes of retirement in races.
