Optimize the Aerodynamics of a Formula 1 Race Car

Maximize the down force of a Formula 1 car while keeping drag to a minimum level.

ANSYS Solution

  • Accurately predict the drag, down force and flow pattern around the Formula 1 racing car
  • Fast simulations thanks to unmatched HPC scalability

Value of Simulation

  • Red Bull Racing has been widely acknowledged as producing the fastest cars currently in F1. Red Bull Racing won both the constructor and driver titles in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
