A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Regarding oscillation, or what I might call passive correction, I watched a video on youtube recently which was about cube-shaped shotgun slugs. When fired, they flew like a spherical slug, pretty straight & true. They tumbled about their centers, and this imparted stability. Seems like an analogue to the feather example, or wobbly wings. Inefficient but self-correcting.
