Ferrari F1-2000 was engineered by Rory Byrne for the 2000 Formula One season. The distinctive features of this design are the raised front end and the clean lines of the rear. The main technical innovations in Ferrari F1-2000 were the lowering of the centre of gravity and the use of new materials, enhancing the overall performance of the car. F1-2000 was Ferrari’s 47th Formula 1 design.
Carbon-fibre and composite honeycomb material is used in the making of the car. It has independent front and rear suspension suspension with push-rod activated torsion arms. Ventilated carbon fibre disc brakes make them more sufficient. The vehicle has longitudinal semi-automatic sequential electronically controlled gearbox.
It is a seven speed semi-automatic gearbox, operated by paddles mounted behind the steering wheel, ensuring optimum performance. The transverse mounting of the gearbox helps keep most of the weight within the wheelbase ensuring a better balance. Rack-and-pinion power assisted steering effectively handles the vehicles in sharp turns.
The car has the weight of 600 kilo / 1322.8 lbs. The length, width and height is 4397 mm, 1795 mm and 959 mm respectively. It has the wheelbase of 1490 mm.
The engine displaces just under three litres and is good for between 770 and 850 bhp. The engine is of 3000 Ferrari type. 40 valves are available and maximum power output over 770 hp. Fuel is stored through Magneti Marelli digital electronic injection and ignition through Magneti Marelli digital electronic injection. There is 1/20 scale plastic assembly model kit based on the Ferrari F1-2000.
Considering the rapid speed, the wheels of ample width have been selected for this racing sedan. Carbon-fibre disc brakes are more efficient in bringing the race car to a halt. Collapsible steering column lessens the impact of injury in the event of accident.
