    I wonder how fast the older F1 cars with the V10 engines were.

    Wet road creates less friction giving less of a chance to blow tires.

    Wait what? Wet roads creates a viscous layer between the rubber and ground effectively reducing the coefficient of friction between the two contacting surfaces. Can you please explain how wet roads gives less of a chance of breaking tires loose? This is new concept for me.

    An F1 tire is well capable of doing 300 km/h. Nobody there was worried the tire would blow...

    Oh he meant as in having the tire actually blow, not break loose. I didnt know what he meant.

    lots of expensive cars with expensive tires so they ran on wet track to reduce friction and save tires, obviously F1 don't care but i am sure others do.

    Moving to general automotive. Don't understand why they didn't just race them side by side... I thought that was what they were going to do when they showed them next to each other.

    If we're actually comparing race cars to street cars then this one take the cake.
    0- like 300mph in less than 4 seconds LOL. This thing literally looks like it was shot out of a cannon.

    Nothing really compares to top fuel when it comes to acceleration. They only run 1000' feet now, not 1/4 mile because a famous driver died a few years back. Back when they were doing the 1/4 mile, I think the quickest was 4.441 @ 333.25 mph. So they 'toned it down' to just 300 mph in 1000 feet.

    If I remember correctly, the acceleration of a top fuel car is the fastest accelerating machine on earth a man can pilot, somewhere around 8 G's of acceleration at launch.

    Not all sanctioning bodies do the 1000 foot. There is pressure for them to go back to 1320.

    A drag race that isn't a 1/4 mile just isn't right.

    What you never seen 100 foot drags?

    Although I would not argue the awesomeness of top fuel or funny cars, you can not compare them to racing cars.
    All cars in the clip are made for going round circuits, and they do that very very well. Even the Veyron has a pretty good track performance.
    The Renault F1 car has a drag coefficient of 0.5, the same as a truck, because it has som much wing to create downforce.
    And even with that it does 0-300 km/h in 12+ seconds.
    On a dry circit it launches to 100 km/h in 1.9 seconds. So I'm not sure why these runs were held in the wet eather. All cars would have performed better in dry conditions. The Veyron was the only car that had a small advantage being 4wd.

    Veyron did it in under 20 seconds, thats insanely fast... Even in the dry.
