INSIDER: Formula One race strategy special

At each race weekend this year, INSIDER has taken fans behind-the-scenes to discover the inner workings of Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team's race crew.

Bernadette Collins

The Hungarian Grand Prix is no exception. But this time, we're taking a more in-depth look at one of the most high profile and high pressure roles in any Formula One team's race strategy.

From track walk discoveries to pitwall decision making, join Bernadette Collins, Head of Race Strategy, as she takes us through a weekend in the life of the strategy team.

Starting out on foot, explore the Hungaroring to see how the team uses past data, visual cues and local weather forecasts to determine tyre strategy.

Then, take a seat on the pitwall to learn how Bernadette remains in constant communication with a remote team back at the factory in Mission Control, gaining feedback and analysing data.

And with variable weather playing a pivotal role in the formation of race strategy, find out how the threat of rain in Budapest threw a last-minute curveball, and how the team responds to changing conditions.

This is the story of how race strategies are developed and implemented, told through the eyes of our Head of Race Strategy.
