At high speeds and on uneven terrain, Formula 1 cars can light a thousand sparks. While being utterly harmless for both drivers and cars, however, the sparks indicate that the aerodynamics of the vehicle are set up close to perfection.
The ground clearance of an F1 car changes constantly: when the car speeds up, aerodynamic forces push it closer to the asphalt. This ensures ideal grip on the track and thus a better performance overall. Striking a compromise between unhelpful gaps and scrapes, the ground clearance is vital to the car’s maximum performance.
