I wonder how much it cost to build one of those front wings?
F1 guys break those very often during the race. Curious how much cash they are trashing when they do that.

I believe they are in the vicinity of $10-20k. But I might be mixing it up with something else.

Not sure how accurate these figures are....but give or take 5k GBP should be somewhere in the ballpark...

http://www.f1-country.com/f1cost.html

I kinda remember back in 2008 ITV Monaco GP, martin brundle did said something about the front wing cost...around 20-30k GBP cause they lost like 7-10 of them during the entire race....

Jesus, so when Hamilton's wing goes under Massa's rear tire, he is burning near $10,000??? That is like wrecking a brand new car.

I knew F1 parts would be extreme, but didn't think it would cost so damn much.

Prepare for non-stop paragraph.."Ahhhh...I think...."
This is going to be good!!!

http://en.espnf1.com/lotusf1/motorsp...ory/71806.html

Quote:
Kimi Raikkonen will appear on the popular BBC TV show Top Gear as next week's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

The episode, due to be aired on March 11, will see the 2008 world champion drive a Suzuki Liana around the Top Gear Test Track at Dunsfield Aerodrome. Raikkonen will also be interviewed by the show's host Jeremy Clarkson.

His lap time in the Suzuki will be compared against those of Sebastian Vettel, Rubens Barrichello, Nigel Mansell, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Damon Hill, Mark Webber and of course the infamous Stig.
