F1 cars have no gearboxes
Formula One cars use semi-au­to­mat­ic se­quen­tial gear­box­es, with reg­u­la­tions stating that 8 forward gears and 1 reverse gear must be used, with rear-wheel drive. The driver ini­ti­ates gear changes using paddles mounted on the back of the steering wheel and elec­tro-hy­draulics perform the actual change as well as throttle control. Shift times for Formula One cars are in the region of 0.05 seconds.
