Look back World Cup Championship of the car world

The 2018 World Cup soccer finals took place on the pitches of Russia with 32 teams representing 32 countries. An interesting question is, what if these teams were to compete in the car market?


Despite failing in the first match, the star of coach Joachim Low, the reigning world champion, is still a champion candidate at the 2018 World Cup. However, on the pitch of the cars Four-wheelers, the German team, despite a series of stars: Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Volkswagen, Porsche, still dropped to the lower projection when only producing 5.6 million cars in 2017. The defending champion is China. Last year, this country produced 29 million cars of all kinds.

2017 runner-up is the US team with GM, Ford, Chrysler stars …, which has launched a total of 11.2 million cars of all kinds. However, both incumbent and runner-up are not present in Russia this summer. The Japanese team is expected to be hard to beat the second round in Russia’s World Cup this year, but they are sure to be in third place in the World Cup of Car Maker rankings with sales 9.7 million vehicles in 2017.

Brazil, who has held the world cup for the fifth time, is also a rising market for the world auto industry. Last year, this market grew to 25% and this year, 2018 is expected to continue growing by 10%. Currently major international brands such as Vilkswagen, Ford, GM and Fiat are expanding production plants in Brazil to turn the land of Samba dancers into a car manufacturing center of South America.

Argentina is expected to win the World Cup for the third time this year, but the country’s auto industry is overcoming a severe crisis in 2014, yet it has not made an impression like strikers on their lawn.

A team rich in tradition both on the pitch and on the track, the England team, still dreaming about the 1960s and early 1970s, when their football team won the World Cup (1966) along with their British car brand set a world record for sales with nearly 2 million units/year. The England team is on the way to find the old aura while the number of cars produced last year of the new country reached 1.74 million units in 2017, which means that it is still less than half a century ago.

The reason racing cars F1 has no airbags

Airbags are difficult and unnecessary to install on F1 racing cars because the special design of the car is capable of protecting the drivers.


The total basic cost to produce an F1 race car is about 14 million USD. However, the car does not have airbags, safety equipment inherent in the popular car line. So what makes manufacturers not fit bags when on F1 racing cars?

According to the Bright Side, F1 cars designed the cockpit to fit the driver. The space is so narrow that it is impossible to install a steering wheel, costing about 70,000 USD.

Possessing many buttons, controls and flat-surface design, F1 steering wheel is hard to fit inside hidden airbags like commercial cars. Besides, the close distance and cramped space can cause the driver to suffocate, injure the bag when activated.

The F1 driver’s seat is so modest that drivers cannot wear all safety belts in their shoulder, hip, and leg positions. Technical staff often help riders do this.

It is about having 5-7 safety belts in the car, the driver cannot slide forward or splash out of the car when there is an accident. This almost eliminates the use of airbags to prevent the driver from colliding with the details of the vehicle. More specifically, when an accident occurs, riders can disassemble the seat belts with just one knob and get out the car the fastest in about 5 seconds.

Why F1 racing cars do not have airbags

F1 racing frame construction is made of light, expensive components, but the stiffness factor is not so overlooked. The details outside the F1 car may be broken or damaged but it is difficult to affect the cockpit where the driver sits.

In addition to the design of F1 cars, riders are also protected by special helmets. For example, this helmet can withstand the force of a 3-kilogram metal rod, falling from a height of 3 meters. The helmet’s material prevents deep cuts not exceeding 25 mm inside.

Helmets of F1 racing helmets can protect the driver’s eyes at a speed of 483 km/h. At the same time, this helmet can withstand outside temperatures up to 815 degrees Celsius for 45 seconds, while the internal temperature is then, below 70 degrees Celsius.

With the equipment available on F1 racing cars and for athletes, airbags are no longer necessary.
