# Re: A few idle F1 questions

In article <MPG.226b5eddc3b438a798a781@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>,

7) A theoretical F1 car weighs 605kg, has 1cm static ground clearance and
develops a further 1200kg of downforce at 200 mph. Use this information to
calculate the minimum suspension spring rates it must use to prevent the
chassis bottoming out at top speed.

And where are we likely to find that info?

Take an 'A' level physics class.. I remember covering spring rates 30
odd years ago..

Long forgotten mind..
