English term or phrase: Aerodynamics

The most important area of F1 car design. F1 cars produce so much aerodynamic downforce that they could be driven upside down at speeds of over 100mph.
Controlling the airflow, and maximising the downforce over the car while keeping it controllable, is a black art which makes the difference between victory and defeat.

The various extra pieces of bodywork visible around the car are all designed to smooth out the airflow as much as possible.


Front wing

A crucial part of the car's design, as it is the first area of the car that comes into contact with the air.
The way the wing channels that air has an effect that is felt the full length of the design.

Even very tiny changes to the front-wing design can have disproportionately large effects on the overall performance.


Rear wing

This has been hit by changes to the regulations this year.
There can now only be three 'elements' at the top and one at the bottom, whereas before teams were using as many has 16 altogether.

This will dramatically reduce available downforce
