is this design necessary, or will just giving the air a smoother transition from the underside back to the more ambient pressures air plenty efficient? all i want to do is make more downforce in the back.

iím really looking for a very elementary explanation of the physics that create downforce, as far as the diffuser goes.

This design won Brawn GP the Drivers and constructors title in 2009. Genius really!
