Technologies for Enhancement of Dynamic Performance of Formula One Vehicle

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review F1 Special (The third Era Activities)

Summary

No matter how superb the performance of the powerplant, unless that power can be transmitted efficiently and effectively through the tires to the track surface, a race vehicle will not have a competitive edge. The most recent technologies for the enhancement of the dynamic performance of Formula One vehicles are developed with a focus on maximizing tire performance. The tires used in Formula One are designed for good performance only within an extremely narrow range of conditions in terms of parameters such as tire contact state and tire temperature, in order to enhance the performance of the tires to the limit. Therefore, understanding and controlling these conditions is an important issue in the development of enhancement technologies for the dynamic performance of Formula One vehicles. This paper will discuss suspension design and vehicle setup, two factors that affect tire performance, and the development of a tire model to function as their theoretical basis.
