Really a good read. Makes you wonder about the physics involved in even the smallest aspect of F1!!
On road cars you just shift down a gear(if needed), slam the throttle and overtake.....no 'wake', no slipstream... just power!!

Re: Formula 1 - Why overtaking is difficult
Feeling excited to scratch an 8 year old topic. I think overtaking an f1 car is difficult because its a race and none is ready to give up and all cars are equally powerful and all drive at the maximum possible speed though there are several other factors.
