Downforce-- which helps the car take corners at great speeds, and Aerodynamics play a major role in minimizing the drag and turbulence that slows down the pace of the car.   Thousands of dollars in research goes into designing the Formula One aerodynamics Shaving seconds off the race and giving the F-1 driver the ultimate advantage.
