Main Question or Discussion Point

I understand very little of aerodynamics.

Currently, my high school robotics team is designing a F1 model.
Concerning aerodynamics, how do you use the Bernoulli's Equation regarding the design of the model car?

The only real direct application of Bernoulli's equation I see there is for calculating the speed of air in a wind tunnel. For the car design itself, though, the drag equation is related to/derived from Bernoulli's equation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drag_equation
