Launch your career: AMF1 undergraduate placements open for 2023

Join us on our journey. We are inviting you to apply to our undergraduate placement positions within a variety of departments.


The nature of our team means that you will be given responsibility and a varied scope of work from the very beginning.

You will be working directly on car components for 2023 season updates and for the new 2024 car.

You will assist senior engineers with larger projects but also work individually on your own components.

The placement will be extremely demanding but will reward exceptional effort and commitment.

During the year students will work closely with other departments including the race team, and get the opportunity to better understand how we operate the car as well as our manufacturing techniques, test methods and data analysis.

Students normally have the opportunity to work in our factory operations room during race weekends should they wish.

Many of our past students have returned full time following their studies. We view our placement programme as an ideal way to discover our senior engineers of the future.

Successful candidates must:

  • Be eligible to work in the UK

  • Be able to demonstrate an innovative and flexible approach to problem solving and possess the ability to work through problems in a scientific and analytical way

  • Be able to integrate quickly into the team and be actively involved

  • Have good communication and analytical skills and be able to work to tight deadlines under pressure

  • Be highly self-motivated and have a flexible approach to working hours

  • Credit will be given to those who can demonstrate active involvement in Formula Student or other motorsport activities

This group covers the internal and external Aerodynamics of our race cars. In this role you will help with the analysis of CFD and Wind Tunnel data to contribute to our aerodynamic development.

You will also be responsible for creating the aerodynamic shapes to improve the flow field through high level surfacing using CATIA. Finally, as part of the placement you will also be present at wind tunnel tests throughout the year to further help with development.

Performance Software

You will be contributing to the development, maintenance and support of current in-house software productions, ranging from command-line tools to desktop applications to microservices and web APIs.

Our products are used by a wide-range of AMF1's engineers including Aero, Strategy, Simulation, Vehicle Performance and design engineers.

Trackside Support

The successful candidate would be working within the Trackside Performance group, with a direct contribution to the optimisation and operation of the cars at the circuit. Day-to-day tasks would include circuit characterisation, setup tracking and driver performance analysis.

Vehicle Performance

The Vehicle Performance Group (VPG) is involved in both short and long term car development projects, which range from pre-event Simulator sessions with the race drivers, through to current and future car concept and design support studies with the aid of simulation and analysis tools.

Research & Development

R&D’s function is to test, measure and investigate all aspects of the mechanical and structural systems of the Aston Martin F1 car. This includes chassis safety and crash testing, suspension behaviour, power unit systems and cooling, wings and structural bodywork as well as brakes and driver controls.

By observing behaviour and measuring outcomes we can improve our knowledge, simulation techniques, component reliability and ultimately the performance the our racing car.

Your role will be to support our full-time engineers and help them to deliver the best possible value for the technical team. Your creativity will be constantly challenged and you will be encouraged to learn and to develop yourself to your fullest potential.

Aero R&D Design

This group has full ownership of leading development and mechanical design of new technology within the Aero Technology department and to drive improvement implementation.

Its scope covers design of wind tunnel models, systems and their associated jigs, full size dyno work to aid correlation and both full size and model scale aero testing equipment.

You will also have the opportunity to be involved in the design and development of a state-of-the-art wind tunnel model and wind tunnel systems for our new F1 Wind Tunnel Project.

Mechanical Design

This group covers the design of both inboard and outboard suspension systems as well as driver controls such as pedal installations, brakes and steering systems. The group works closely with vehicle science and aerodynamics departments.

Engine Systems

This group covers the design of components related to power unit and gearbox installation, utilising both metallic and composite design for the cooling system, fuel system, several auxiliary areas and associated jig and fixtures where required.


Involved in the design of the mechanical aspects of various electronic assemblies and packing of our on-car electrical installation and will be involved in generating efficient CAD schemes for electrical harnesses and enclosures, producing both assembly drawings and technical drawings for mechanical and composite components along with required tooling.

Garage Equipment Design

This group reports directly to the race team and is responsible for delivering bespoke garage equipment covering many aspects of the car as well as special request projects. It also supports the pitstop crew at the factory with practice and performance development rigs.

Each role will involve extensive use of CATIA CAD software although all necessary CAD training will be provided - as well as standard Microsoft Office software.
