The fight against track time-loss across a GP weekend

With just three hours of practice time in a Grand Prix weekend, and strict rules in Formula One governing all avenues of car development and testing, maximising every second of every session is paramount for success.

Chief Mechanic Curtis Stones is at the heart of this drive, working to ensure the AMR21 is built correctly, safely and efficiently, while also ensuring he is in constant communication with the designers, engineers and car technicians.

Any loss of track time, whether through an on-track incident, a technical issue, or operational error, has a knock-on effect. Every minute of a session is important, improving our understanding of the car, tyres and circuit.

Our Official Cybersecurity Partner SentinelOne works with the team as we strive for 100% accuracy and efficiency in every process.
