The chassis is the central part of an F1 car, and all additional parts, such as the front wing and halo, are attached to this. It’s a single-piece monocoque structure, forming a protective shell around the driver.

Virtually indestructible, twice as strong as steel and five times lighter, it’s usually made from 12 layers of carbon fibre mats. It typically weighs around 35kgs but also has to take the weight of all the other components and withstand huge aerodynamic load.
