Static load testing

In addition to impact tests, Formula One cars, and in particular the survival cell that houses the driver, must also pass static load tests. These ensure that the structure of the car meets minimum strength requirements.

The survival cell is tested, as is the nose and the rear impact structure of the car. In addition, the floor below the fuel tank and the cockpit, and the rim of the cockpit must also pass strict tests. All of these requirements help to make Formula One cars safer than ever before.
