Aerodynamic drag plays a very vital role in speed and stability of the automobile. Too much drag reduces the speed and efficiency while too little drag creates very much instability in the vehicle. DRS or drag reduction system is a very useful tool in formula one moto-racing where they use it to reduce drag & gains speed advantage. Hence this article is concentrated on analysis of drag reduction with different speed of the formula one car numerically. A rear wing model which is a very vital part of the DRS is designed using CATIA Vr520 software and simulating analysis is made using ANSYS 14.0 software. With a mesh relevance of +30000, it is found that with the application of DRS and acrophobic layer, the air resistance is reduced by 26%. This reduction enhances the efficiency as well as performance of vehicles.
