On and off the track, every bit of data, every input, and every piece of analysis is vital to creating a competitive Formula One car.
Our engineers meticulously analyse and evaluate every part of the car in the search of ways to save every fraction of a gram. We try to make the car as light as it can possibly be and that even goes as far as the paint.
Similarly, aerodynamics has always been important in motor racing. Creating a streamlined car with as little air resistance as possible is important to provide the maximum straight-line speed in a race, while aero holds the key to generating downforce which keeps the car glued to the track at high speeds through the corners.
Every minute spent working on an F1 car is vital, but when there are only limited opportunities to drive it how do you unlock its potential? Developments in simulation technology and virtual reality mean that drivers and engineers can now learn more about their cars than ever before.
Watch our Powered by How video series, presented by our strategic partner Aramco, to learn more about what makes a Formula One car the best it can be.
Lighter Equals Faster
In this first episode of Powered by How, brought to you by our strategic partner Aramco, AMF1 team members explain how every gram of weight matters on track.
The Importance of Aerodynamics
In this episode of Powered by How, brought to you by our strategic partner Aramco, our team members explain how aerodynamics drives performance in F1.
The Importance of Simulation in F1
In a sport where time is limited, virtual simulation plays a vital role in both testing and development to extract optimal performance from the car.
In this episode of Powered by How, brought to you by our strategic partner Aramco, our team members explain how simulations influence reality in F1.
