YouTuber Explains the Engineering behind Tire Camber Angle in F1 Cars

The races are postponed, so in the meantime, here is an explanation of how the Formula 1 cars take those turns.

Due to the global pandemic the world’s fighting against right now, there’s no Formula 1 this weekend, so why not replenish your F1 dictionary and learn something new in the process?

If you’re an extra-observant F1 fan, you might have noticed that the F1 cars make turns a lot. Exactly how they complete these complex turns is no secret, and this Youtuber explains how the tire camber angle affects the way the cars take those turns. The video also goes into the reason why you camber the tires at all and more.

You might already know this, but it won’t hurt to hear it again: The camber is the angle of the wheels in relation to the ground when looked from the front of the car. 

The relationship between the tire and the road changes as the suspension moves through the travel. Making a car take those turns with such high speeds becomes possible thanks to our knowledge in this area. 

Moreover, knowing the engineering behind the production of these amazing cars will probably make you appreciate F1 cars more. Tune in to watch, and be ready for great visuals.
