Can anyone tell me what an accurate value might be for the frontal area of an F1 car and its wingless drag coefficient?!
And also, does anybody have a figure, possibly that I could reference, for the horsepower available at the flywheel? How much to deduct for inefficiencies?
I am trying to do some calculations for the downforce required by a front wing!
any help would be appreciated!!
5. What is drag coefficient of F1 car? Is the deflector in front of rear wheel is used to deflect the air coming towards rear wheel, and hence reduce drag?
A. It depends which wind tunnel has been used in calculating the drag coefficient. In general, it is close to 1, and clearly, both the deflector, and more generally, all aerodynamic components in a F1 car, are designed with the aim of reducing drag and improving the car’s efficiency.
