Industry Collaboration

Grand Prix racing thrives on innovation, skill and passion. It has seen the fastest technological change of any business, industry or sport in the world.

The stopwatch is ticking but we are determined to win the race. Failure is not an option. In the performance culture of F1 results are all that matter.
Every race presents a momentous challenge that must be executed with precision and intelligence by a large and diverse team. From race strategy to detailed mechanics, each team is relentless in their drive to succeed, working together to achieve the most advanced technological solutions.
