An essay on Formula One

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

 

I'm planning to write my extended essay on anything formula one. Since I'm majoring in Math and Physics, people say would have to be something in the aerodynamics section. However, I'm willing to explore something else. Anybody have ideas on what else I could research on? 

 

Also are there any resources that can guide me? Books or websites. 

 

Thanks :)

You could look at it from a historical point of view and therefore do a history EE. You could research its development such as the causes of its popularity or causes of its spread around the world.

You could also do an economics EE. There has been some debate the past few years in Australia as to whether the government should keep funding the Melbourne Grand Prix using tax payers' money. So another thing you could research is how viable formula 1 racing is. Here's an interesting article:

Of course, you could do it on any Grand Prix not just the Melbourne one.

 

Be sure to read the EE guide on whatever subject you decide to do before you start researching just to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to do for that particular subject. Also, I highly recommend you pick a subject that you are actually studying for the IB.

Well its a great idea. I suggest yo check up that you have enough material on hand first. If you do your EE on aerodynamics, make sure that you focus more on the physics part. Whatever subject you choose, you need to keep in mind that your EE can't be interdisciplinary. (And this gets tricky when doing an EE in Science).
