Interesting discussion regarding the effects of altitude on the cars in general. Even more appropriate would be term density altitude which gives you a value of air density in comparison to sea level (in standard conditions, 15C/59F, 1013.25mb/29.921Hg, 0% RH). So while the race track is at 2,285m (7,497ft), the atmospheric conditions on sunday actually had the density altitude at 2,881m (9,452ft). The relative air density in these conditions was ~75%. So you are missing ~25% of the air that you would have at sea level. Without the turbo the ICE power/aero efficiency would be reduced by ~25%. With the… Read more »
