Together with our Official Trading Partner AvaTrade, Ben Michell provides an in-depth insight into his role as Lance Stroll's Race Engineer.

Aston Martin F1

Communication and composure are qualities central to Ben Michell's role at Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team.

Sitting trackside on the pitwall during every session, Ben is the conduit between Lance and the team back at our Technology Campus who are parsing through terabytes of data to ensure our drivers can get the maximum out of the AMR23.

You may well have heard his voice over team radio during television broadcasts, but Ben often works behind the scenes with colleagues trackside and at the AMR Technology Campus. Now, he sits in front of the camera to explain how he plays a pivotal part in our race operations.

Just as we push the boundaries of speed and technology to help engineers and drivers make the right calls, our Official Trading Partner AvaTrade does the same to help traders make the right calls in the global markets.

In the heat of battle on track, Ben relays key strategic information and decisions to Lance at the right time to help him extract the most from the car and maximise performance.

Watch as, together with AvaTrade, Ben explains how he harnesses the expertise of team-mates trackside and at our Technology Campus to make crucial decisions every race weekend.
