That is one serious racing machine. That thing has unbelievable amounts of carbon. I haev actually sat in one of those. Not that exact one of course but one just like it, only the one I sat in was black and white and had a different sponser.
It is meant to be very bright. So when its foggy or somethin' during a raceyou can see it. You don't want two F1 rockets smashing into each other at 200 MPH! They would crumple up like paper and explode.
