I am using the tyre friction equation Fc=mu*Fnormal to calculate the downforce required for each corner of the Gilles Villeneuve circuit in Canada.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Fnormal composes of the downforce and weight of the car.

mu has a maximum value of 1.7, however this value will vary from corner to corner right?

this is resulting in negative values for downforce in some corners.

Does anyone know a way of calculating the tyre friction coefficient for each corner without needing the Fnormal force?

All of my calculations are on the attached excel spreadsheet.
