The vertical angle made by the vehicle's wheel against the road surface is called Camber. Camber is positive when the top of the wheel leans away from the car and negative when it leans in at the top. This vertical angle is usually found on current F1 cars, and it has a tremendous effect on the grip of the tires of the vehicle. The wheels of the vehicle generate the highest grip when it is on the vertical axis against the road or slightly negative camber. The maneuverability of the vehicle around corners is affected by a positive camber. Cornering ability of the vehicle suffers due to positive camber. A slightly negative camber is designed and aligned with the wheels and attached to an independently sprung pair of wheels most of the modern cars. The term camber also applies to the road surface. An adverse camber on the slope can throw off a car from its direction on the corners of the road. Camber angle made by the vehicle wheels is made by alterations to the suspension design; most modern cars have better maneuverability as the suspension systems are designed with a slightly negative camber as it improves grip when cornering. The wheels of the vehicle are placed at a better angle to the surface of the road due to negative camber, transmitting the resistance forces through the vertical plane of the wheel.  Rubber tyres of the vehicle have a tendency to roll on it while cornering.  Adjusting the wheels and the suspension system to a slightly negative camber can help get a better grip on the road surface and helps avoid the tyres roll on themselves.
