The following is far from the most efficient way to do this but it is a
fairly typical example of functional programming. We define a
subsidiary function:

FF[{a_, b_}, {c_, d_}] := If[a ² c < b, f[c] *d, 0]

and then let it fly:

Function[x,Total[Map[FF[x,#]&,list1]]]/@(Partition[list2,2,1])

{7378 f[0.71]+768 f[1.6]+2269 f[2]+2608 f[2.4]+193 f[2.6]+4187
f[2.8]+204 f[2.85]+134 f[2.95],
776 f[3.2]+24 f[3.25]+6209 f[3.6]+2809 f[3.7]+1923 f[3.95],2627
f[4]+25
f[4.1]+f[4.15]-15 f[4.25]+1863 f[4.35]+1797
f[4.4]+7533 f[4.45],53 f[4.55]+12045 f[4.7]+7304 f[4.9]+34 f[4.95]}
