It's enough to visibly see Perez helmet shaking on the straight in the smoothest of this years cars. You can speculate the numbers, I'll just go by what I see and hear from the drivers, including Perez.
Vettels head is also shaking, and that is with a car with much softer suspension.
In the current cars the drivers will be shaken more, because of the hard suspension. That is inevitable with the ground effect cars. Your spring rate needs to be higher than the rate the downforces increases when the car goes closer to the ground. And that rate is high because the floor downforce is so dependent on the gap between the floor edge and the ground.
If you want a soft sprung ground effect car, you need to have less downforce from the ground effect. Let me think... we could introduce flat floors...
