Modern Formula One racing cars consist of a monocoque, a self-supporting cell of highly rigid carbon fibre composite that forms a single unit with the engine and trans-mission. It is not only lighter than earlier designs, it is also significantly safer. McLaren was one of the first teams to introduce this technology into Formula One in the 1980s.
