Aerodynamics in Formula One racing is often described as a black art, the real secret to success on the track .In the tough struggle for crucial seconds in Formula 1, aerodynamics play a fundamental role .Small impact make the difference between success and failure. A small change in aerodynamic structure can make the difference. A modern formula one car is a technical master piece. Aerodynamics in formula one deals with how effectively we utilize the air, in favor of requirement of us and not considering it as a frictionally force .Any person driving his/her car at 120-150 KMPH finds it very difficult to control it. But any one has ever imagined how difficult it is to control a car at 300-350 KMPH on road. Practically not possible, but it is all made to work by aerodynamics. With the available technology it is not difficult to manufacture an engine which can run at speed on par with the speed of sound or even greater, but the thing is how effectively a driver controls it on the road. There the role of aerodynamics comes into play. In a sport obsessed with attention to detail, the aerodynamicists are more obsessive than most. The teams invest up to 20% of their total budget in the science of the winds, making their cars even faster with innovative aerodynamic designs. Meticulous precision work is undertaken down to the last millimeter, according to the motto; races are won in the wind tunnel and lost on the track.
First and foremost, aerodynamics is the science of manipulating and making use of airflow. Put simply, aerodynamics deals with the flow of air and how it reacts with bodies in motion. A windmill and an aero plane are both examples of aerodynamics in action. In Formula One racing, high speeds means the air is a formidable force presenting an obstacle to speed but it can be used to the car?s advantage as well. The following deals with different parts of the formula one car aerodynamically streamlined so as to get maximum performance on the track. The paper entirely revolves around the downforce developed on the car
