Diffusing the situation

F1 diffuser illustration, Motor Magazine, June 2009

2009 F1 Diffuser, Motor magazine, June 2009This illustration shows the difference between the diffusers (or rear underbody – highlighted in yellow) or rival F1 manufacturers.

The diffuser pulls air from under the car creating downforce and reducing drag. There was some controversy in the F1 world earlier this year regarding the width of the diffuser. You can read more about it here.

This illustration was a little tricky due to the lack of reference photos. Most of the images were blurry action shots, but with a little improvisation and imagination I think they turned out ok.
