Im fairly new to this forum and wasnt sure where to post this thread
also im fairly new to physics and not so sure if im saying things right haha
so hope this is alright


im doing a research assignment based on formula one, and was wondering if anyone could suggest a good aspect of physics involved in it ?
at the moment my teacher has asked me to develop focus questions...
here are a few ive thought of doing:

1. why are different tyre types more effective in certain weather conditions ?
(having to do with the effect of friction)

2. What steps have been taken to ensure driver safety in case of a crash?
(so this would be the forces that occur on the driver when he crashes)

3. what kind of forces are acting on a race car as it travels along the circuit?
(too broad?)

any suggestions of better focus questions? or topics?

thanks :]

While you could somewhat incorporate this into point 3, aerodynamics is a major part of formula one.

Your focus questions look very good to me.
