Cars slower after bodywork damage?

I noticed since the 1.1.3 update the cars are slower after you damage the bodywork. I always do around 260kph in the 12c gt3 at Spa. But now after i damage my bodywork the car only tops around 250. Anyone else noticed this?

Yep, as Niki says if you pick up bodywork damage, then the aerodynamic efficiency isn't as high as it is supposed to be when the car is undamaged, because the 'airflow' isn't passing over the bodywork as it was intended.

yea, trying to avoid grounding and or damage around Spa in some cars seems to be quite hard atm especially with the likes of the C7R
