Estimating F1 Aero Coefficients with Lap Simulation

F1 aero data is always a hot topic for speculation, and while only the teams will know the real answer, I decided to take a crack at estimating F1 aero coefficients from the bit of public data that we have available. In order to do this I used my custom MATLAB lap time simulation (LTS)…

Aerodynamic Studies of a 2022 F1 Car

In a couple of months the 2022 Formula 1 season will get underway with probably the largest single change to the aerodynamic regulations in its history. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do some aero investigations of my own, so today I want to share my concept of a 2022 car before the first…

Building an F1 Lap Sim Model

I’ve wrote a bit about my lap sim program before, but today I wanted to give a full demonstration. The goal will be to build up a model of a modern F1 car and correlate it to real telemetry data. My main tool will be my MATLAB quasi-static lap time simulation program, but the process…
