Formula One Aerodynamics

At high speeds air resistance becomes the dominant force your car's engine must provide force against. Better vehicle aerodynamics can reducd this resistance and allow higher top speeds or more fuel efficiency. The higher the top speed and the greater the time a vehicle spends at highway speeds (or more, in the case of race cars) the more important good aerodynamics is. The video gives an introduction to Formula One race car aerodynamics.

As the video says, you can't see, smell taste air, but you sure can feel it. And through aerodynamics and fuel efficiency, so can your wallet!
