What Makes F1 Crashes So Incredibly Expensive

There are thousands or even tens of thousands of parts that make up an F1 car. These parts range from simple to immensely complicated. As with any car crash, an impact can jar loose all sorts of tiny pieces from within the vehicle, leading to a far greater replacement or repair requirement than simple body repairs. This is true for any kind of car crash, as speed is a determining factor in both overall damages to the vehicle and the extent of injury to the people involved. Considering that F1 cars can exceed speeds of 200 mph (via Seed Scientific), the force of impact is magnified tremendously over the average collision on a public roadway.

The first thing that typically breaks in an F1 collision is the wheel assembly, followed by the nose and wing segments. Tires and nose assemblies are designed to be interchangeable so that they can be swapped out a number of times throughout a race. This also makes them fragile when it comes to impact. MotorBiscuit reports that the front wing assembly on an F1 car costs at least $200,000. MotorBiscuit also reports that fuel tanks cost around $140,000 and the gearbox can rise to as much as $600,000. These are all incredibly expensive components that may need to be repaired or replaced entirely after an F1 car has been in a collision.
