F1 Firsts: Ground Effect Aerodynamics banned formula 1 technology

by adminDianeAshleyBooks

You may have heard of ground effect before … but did you know it was created entirely by accident? Take a look at the history of this old-school F1 technology that paved the way for modern-day aerodynamic marvels.

What does she say here?? (0:27)
It sounds like she says "team Olympus".. yet this car is clearly Lotus and is also correctly pronounced at the end of the video. (1:38)

Can be so dangerous if for any reason ground falls under the car. Like the entire circuit falling down… never now.

I am so proud of this community. The comment section is the best thing about this channel.

a skirt joke…
by Liberty Media (an american corporation)…
in 2019…
why kind of democracy is this???

I wonder how much faster the current f1 cars would be with just skirts installed

studioROT 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

Yeah, that did not at all explain how ground effect works. Skirts are only one element of the technology that Lotus used to generate it, but the skirts have not much to do with the principle itself. It was the upward bending shape of the rear part of the Lotus 78's side-pods’ floor that aerodynamically created a lower air pressure than the ambient air pressure resulting in the car being sucked towards the ground – or, if you like, the car being pushed down to the ground by the air above it. The skirts only prevented air from flowing under the car from the sides. And yes, it was really designed and not discovered. Knowledge is useful when making and publishing videos on physics, technology and history.

"Gave them huge amounts of downforce without the drag"…. Key sentence there, I still don't know what they haven't gone back to ground effects because it would surely solve a lot of the dirty air/following issues?

maziasty 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

I hope Williams sees this.

Denis Ryan 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

Ooooohhhhh! That transition at 1:39 was beautiful!

Dat-Mudkip 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

You explain they had skirts and that that is where the ground effect took shape, but you don't explain why the hell the side skirts were originally put there.

Is that it?

ODD_Espnes 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

What is the sidepods or whatever on the lancia D50?
Where they creating downforce or?

FIA: “How do we get cars to follow closer creating exciting racing?”
Engineers: “Very well regulated ground effect cars.”
Non engineers: “The cars will be too fast around corners and everyone will die!”
Engineers: “That can be mitigated by well written reg…”
Non engineers: “No! Nothing has changed technology-wise in 40 years! Ground effect equals mass death and destruction!”
FIA: “So, make everything bigger?”

Should also cover why they were banned. There were serious safety issues in addition to the incredible performance increase.

lord such 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

I heard that when they were experimenting with wing section on a wind tunnel model , the model wing sections were a bit flimsy and started to droop , until the outer edge made contact with the ground , at which time the downforce level went up . They thought about this and decided to do another model with the edges sealed with what became skirts.

Better than Physics lessons.

Bring ground effects back!

Andi amHappy 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

Well done, but did you need to promote the sexist view of skirt? How did you decide that F1 fans are chauvinists?

alephii 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

When and I ground effect was banned?

Damian Pampampam 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

Then comes up that Brabham(?) with witchcraft of sucking the air out,and you fucking ban it forever

I dreamed of Formula 1 this night, both Mercedes started from last place, and it was a year were the aerodinamics were pretty simple, but damn those Mercedes were beautiful as f… And they had to recover in the race

Alex Freemich 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

1st aerodynamic wings originated in f1 car? NOPE
1st ground effect racing cars is from formula one? NOPE
Guys do your research right.

Bring back Fan Boost
No not FE fan boost

to whom it may concern 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

Loosen up the rules. Let the teams innovate.

Ryon Atkinson 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

They also suck manholes up! It's quite a good feature

But if the car jumps a bit too much, it flies away.

FrontSideBus 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

What? No graphic showing the Venturi shape of the sidepod bottom or explaining how it actually works or what the skirts actually do? A bit poor tbh.

DaveyGa 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

*slow clap *
Can Am cars were using ground effects back in the 60's..

henri hufflett 23/02/2022 - 9:08 Chiều

why don't they bring it back? huge downforce advantage and less dirty air

My money is on the huge gulf between the front runners and everyone else being due to the subtle nature of the vortex pseudo skirts used currently.
