**Summary:**Basicly i am trying to find out if there's anyway to calculate the diffrence in pressure underneath and above the car so i can calculate the downforce

Hello I am doing a project about aerodynamics of a formula 1 car

when i wanted to do calculations of how much downforce each aerodynamic component creates i ran into a problem

Becouse every single website just said that it all came down to making sure the pressure underneath the car was lower then the pressure above the car

but how do you calculate how low the pressure under the car is becouse i can't find it anywhere

the formula I am using to calculate the downforce is

F = (delta)P * A

F = downforce in Newtons

(delta)P = the diffrence in pressure in pascals

A= Surface

But since i have no way of calculating the diffrence in pressure I am kind of stuck

Thank you in advance for any help
