Well, I feel pro is too much for me
You may find some things in common like some compound materials, but for example:
The design of the engine: completely different concepts
- The Veyron has got a couple of 4L V8´s "bolted together" to form a W16 8L engine, with a bore of 86mm and stroke of 86mm, that engine is "square" and very very "torqui", max. engine speed "only" 6500rpm and its turbocharged. Because of the torque, the gearbox is different, too. That engine should last more than 100,000 km. (125bhp/litre)
- An F1 has got a 2.4L V8 with a bore of 98mm and stroke arround 40mm. That engine is "supersquare" to allow 20,000rpm+ (restricted to "only" 19,000) but relatively low torque, wich allows a light and small gearbox, there is no turbo and the engine lasts 700km. (300bhp/litre)
Aerodynamics: totally different, Veyron has movable aero devices, covered wheels, etc.
Weight: 2040kg vs. <500Kg + driver and ballast
Tires: totally different temp. working ranges, tyre construction, rubber compounds, durability, etc
Chasis: Veyron has aluminum panels over carbon fibre monocoque w/Aluminum front subframe and a hybrid carbon/stainless steel rear subframe. In a F1 chassis, the word "steel" is like an insult.
Brakes: ceramics rotors vs Carbon rotors
Suspension: Veyron can adjust ride height (and probably damping) geometry is different and of course stiffnes is appropiate to handle some street bumps, something that would make an F1 brake into pieces, even at low speeds.
So, as far as I can see, there is no much things a race engineer can learn from a Veyron to apply to F1. Hope that clarifies my previous short post
