In the latest episode of our series explaining Formula 1 technology, Giorgio Piola and Jake Boxall-Legge focus on the diffuser.

With access to Mercedes' incredible F1 car collection plus 3D animations and Piola's legendary technical illustrations, they discuss how this ever more important element of the rear of the car contributes to performance.

They also examine the diffuser developments made possible by the 2017 regulation changes, which were designed to make F1 cars' corner speeds substantially faster.
