Smallest racing car ever

Jan Torgersen and colleagues from the Vienna University of Technology have created a racing car four times the width of a human hair.

Such small scales are low Reynolds-number environments, where viscosity dominates inertial forces, and turbulence is of diminishing significance. It is difficult to avoid concluding that the quality of the racing will be intrinsically better in follicular Formula One.
