Your project sounds very interesting, but I was wondering (if you're not too far into it already) why you wouldn't prefer to compare the passenger car to a WTCC/BTCC/GT/WRC/V8 Super car since these are much more similar as far as geometry goes? You might also have a little more luck getting data since your everyday enthusiasts race cars like these whereas F1 is more obtuse and specialized and the teams are very secretive. I'd try an enthusiast group like the Spec E30 guys. A lot of them could probably tell you the difference between their daily driver E30s and the race prepped ones, and with the Spec ones you know exactly what they've done to them because there's published rules.
Best of luck.
I actually wish I read this before I started, but I am now too far into the report unfortunately. I did think when I started it would be hard to find any information about Formula One cars, but lucky my report is not that big so I don't have to go into any real detail. Thanks for the help anyway.
