F1 Engine - Explained

How do F1 engines work? What are the differences between a Formula One engine and a normal car engine? In this video I give a basic overview of F1 engines, and talk about some of the things that separate them from your everyday daily driver's engine. One major difference is in the valvetrain, F1 engines have used pneumatic valves, which I will go over. NOTE: Volumetric efficiency of over 100% is possible in naturally aspirated engines, thought it is not necessarily common in everyday road cars.
