In the 2020-2021 season, the global audience watching Formula 1 reached 433 million viewers, making it one of the world’s most popular sports. Yet few people realise that each F1 car is constructed from an astounding 80,000 separate components, making each vehicle a compressed 720kg package of hydraulic systems, mechanical devices, carbon, tyres, and fuel!
To assemble an F1 car, incredible levels of technical expertise and precision engineering are required so, at Hone-All, we’re proud to be associated with some of the world’s leading Formula 1 teams. Our association with F1 is a powerful endorsement of our reliability and commitment to high standards - particularly as we’re trusted to manufacture safety critical parts, such as anti-roll bars, for F1 cars.
Achieving The Highest Safety Standards For F1 Racing
Everyone knows that Formula 1 racing involves mind blowing speeds, so it’s not difficult to appreciate the dangers involved when race cars corner at speeds of over 200mph! An anti-roll bar is a device fitted to the car’s suspension to reduce the body roll of the vehicle when cornering at high speed. In accidents and collisions, the anti-roll bar will help to prevent the car from physically rolling over, protecting the driver, and preventing serious injury or death. By combining our expert knowledge and skills with the latest technology, we manufacture anti-roll bars for Formula 1 vehicles, playing our part in keeping drivers safe even in the worst-case scenario.
Delivering Essential Components For F1
We also machine other crucial components of F1 cars, including steering columns, clutch shafts, driveshafts, uprights, and transmission parts. With our expert knowledge of metals and commitment to matching materials to their intended purpose, we are able to select from the finest grade metals including titanium, aluminium, and steel to create components that are incredibly robust, durable, and stress resistant.
Meeting The Challenge Of Life In The Fast Lane
In Formula 1, lead times can be incredibly challenging, matching the fast-paced nature of the sport. At Hone-All, we’re committed to delivering excellent service to our customers, so the prospect of a tight turnaround time is a challenge we welcome. In fact, our teams will even work through the night to ensure we achieve our targets and deliver vital F1 components on time, every time.
