How do F1 aerodynamics work?

1 Answer:
  • Raymond Tang
    F1 is introducing new aerodynamic regulations for 2022 with the aim of reducing the "dirty air" produced by the current cars, which makes passing difficult. The new F1 car features a simpler front wing and a rear wing designed to push the aerodynamic wake up and over the car following behind.15 jul 2021
  • What accelerates car faster?

    In terms of acceleration, torque plays a bigger role in how quickly your car accelerates. That's because the torque is a result of the force the pistons generate and at what speed. The quickest vehicles can generate high levels of this torque force at relatively low rpm. This allows the vehicle to accelerate quickly.20 jul 2021
  • Why is the Cybertruck aerodynamic?

    We can see that not all the air flows over the roof. In fact, some air is directed outboard around the front A-Pillar and then curves back inboard around the roofline at the rear. This air then joins the main flow over the roof. This results in vortices along the roofline, which creates aerodynamic drag.

  • What's better springs or coilovers?

    Coilovers are a great alternative to a lowering spring set up because they allow you to adjust your ride height and come in many setups, from daily use to full track rated. Unlike lowering springs, you are not stuck with a single and stiffness.7 may 2019
  • How does a car's drag effect its fuel usage?

    "For a full-size truck, a change in drag coefficient of 0.01 is approximately equal to an improvement in fuel economy of 0.1 mpg on the combined city/highway driving cycle," says GM's Schenkel. "The same drag coefficient reduction can improve a car's fuel economy by approximately 0.2 mpg."5 may 2009
