I really wonder, so if I would be to try to make the simplest, most stripped down but still legal F1 car, what parts are absolutely needed?

I'm gonna guess the halo, safety cell and 4 tires are mandatory, but are there any other parts that are mandatory per F1 rules?

  • This is an interesting question. I know there are all sorts of regulations about front/rear wings, barge boards, sidepods etc, and that you'll be a heck of a lot slower without all those aerodynamic components, but I don't know whether they're actually required, per se. – F1Krazy Jan 12 at 16:54
  • Yeah I guess that a car with only the required parts would be too slow to be allowed on track. Like I wonder, is, per regulations, a motor required? It would not be allowed on track yes, but it would still be legally, per rules, a F1 car. – Fredy31 Jan 12 at 17:31
