There's an awful lot of information to consuder when it comes to Formula 1 racing. It's arguably the most complicated and technologically advanced sport in the world, with an ever-changing rule book, aerospace-level engineering, and the most elite driver talent. It's enough to make any fan's head spin. Fortunately we've got a tidy infographic that lays it all out for you.

Submitted (interestingly enough) by online bingo site Ladbrokes.com, this infographic breaks down everything, including the newest features on the 2012 cars, each team and the equipment they use, the full race calendar, the lap times from the pre-season test sessions, and a smattering of other interesting information. Check it out after the jump.

      "Breaks" and "Breaking"...I didn't know the car breaks every time you brake?

      I am quite amazed to find out that a F1 car is built on so many complex designs. No wonder I am not into these outdoor sports and pretty happy playing at best offers bingo sites.

      Not a bad attempt, but the rear diffuser text is coupled with rear wing picture. Try harder next time.

      Why does no one spell "brakes" correctly in the automotive online world. It's BRAKES, people, not BREAKS. Don't get me started on braking breaks in, or what happens when your breaks brake. Or should that be "when your brakes break?" I dunno anymore.....now I'm confused....

        While breaking is bad where does "consuder"-ing fall on your spelling radar?

      The rear diffuser is at the bottom of the car. Whats shown in the drawing is the rear wing.

      Funny how the Ferrari is the only one facing backwards. I bet that crappy turd would go faster backwards than forwards...

      This blog deals with very complex designs of a F1 car. I never knew it takes so much of intricacies to make a design like this! I am glad that best offers bingo games are not so complex. :)

      I have not the time to read this article, but I finished helping my brother today build a Formula 1 pinewood derby car cub for scouts. It's one of my ways of spending some time with my brother before I head off to USAF basic training in a little over a week. Just thought I'd pop that semi-related thing in here.

      I know it's all about maximum efficiency, but F1 cars keep getting uglier.

        The nose is for safety, not efficiency. I agree that they are uglier.

      The Mercedes on the picture is the last year's car.
