Student formula car is correct, not formula one!

A student team consisting of 9 mechanical engineering students and 3 industrial engineering students (10 from Ferdowsi University and 2 from Shahid Montazeri Technical University of Mashhad) announced their participation in the student formula competition by unveiling their racing car. This car named “Reham” was designed and produced or customized by students in a period of 2 years and completely (except for the engine). Ferdowsi University of Mashhad is the oldest university in Iran in the field of participating in these competitions and this is their third participation (2014 and 2018).

During the unveiling of Raham’s car, “Car unveiling Formula one in the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad and sending it to compete in the Italian Formula One races” had become a hot headline in the domestic media! This issue immediately caused some so-called experts to react and compare Raham with Formula One samples. The origin of this trend is the use of the term “Formula One” instead of “Student Formula” in the headlines of the media.

Perhaps publishing the news of Raham’s racing car unveiling with a wrong headline is a media mischief to attract attention and be in the spotlight; But the more disturbing issue is its widespread republishing by many publications, apparently none of them asked that “doesn’t the team of one of the prominent universities in the country know the difference between Formula One cars and their own?!”

I congratulate the students of Ferdowsi University; Because car design, even conceptual and experimental samples, is complicated, difficult and time-consuming due to the presence of tens of thousands of parts in cars, even if ready-made parts are used. Like the body parts, only if all the parts of the car work properly and in harmony with each other, the desired output will be obtained.

Raham has a 600 cc 4-cylinder engine with 67 horsepower, an aluminum chassis and a carbon fiber body weighing about 280 kg and can reach a speed of 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds.
