Abstract: Active aerodynamics is a key technology in modern Formula 1 racing, allowing teams to optimize the aerodynamic performance of their cars in real-time. This research explored the potential benefits and challenges of implementing active aerodynamics in an F1 front wing, with a focus on the trade-offs between performance and efficiency. A detailed analysis of current systems, computational models, and experimental methods were used to study the effects of different active aerodynamics configurations on the overall performance of an F1 front wing. Results showed that active aerodynamics can provide significant benefits in terms of lap time and decrease in fuel consumption, but also pose challenges in terms of reliability and cost. Key factors influencing the performance and reliability of active aerodynamics systems were identified, including the design and layout of wing elements, and aerodynamic loads. This research provides a comprehensive assessment of the feasibility and benefits of implementing active aerodynamics in an F1 car, with the goal of informing future design decisions and enabling teams to optimize their aerodynamic performance.
