Downforce

The aerodynamic force whereby air passing over a car forces it down on to the track, improving cornering capability. This is achieved on Formula 1 cars by using a number of inverted wings on the front and rear of the car. The main chassis is often designed to also produce downforce. It is said that above 120mph enough downforce is generated on a Formula 1 car that it could be driven upside down on the ceiling.


Dry Sump

A lubrication system in which the oil is pumped into the engine's sump under pressure and then pumped out again. This reduces the losses from the oil being churned around by the crank and big ends at the same time as allowing it to be cooled efficiently.
