Research Question? How does changing the angle of the rear wing  affect the forces on the formula one?
For the F1 rear wing angles parallel to the flow of a  rear wing the down force and drag force are small. At  angles perpendicular to the flow of the rear wing the  down force and drag forces are large.  About Regulations: According to F1 chart of 2002  setup guide the rear wing can range from an angle of  0 to 50 degrees (AlexRacer, 26).   Technical Regulations of Drag Reduction System:  The DRS allows the flap to lift a maximum of 50mm  from the fixed main plane (Matt, Nexusf1).
