DRAG
• Air resistance acting opposite to the relative
motion of any object.

• It depends on the shape of the object.

• The faster the object the greater the drag.

SUMMARY
• The engineers try to reduce the air friction (drag), so the vehicles can go
faster.

• They try to put a large downforce to prevent wheelie and to pass through
a corner without lose the control of the vehicle.
