How Formula 1 Teams Optimise Race Strategy and Analysis

Formula 1 is the pinnacle of performance and predictive analysis, with teams collecting over 1000 data points per second to power over 2 million predictive simulations. 

From practice sessions to qualifying, and finally executing on race day, every turn is met with analytical precision. But how is this achieved?

In Bernie’s exclusive webinar, you’ll discover how and why predictive simulations impact performance outcomes. Additionally, you’ll gain a sense of how this technology will soon be harnessed by sports teams in football and rugby.

Pitwall to the Sidelines: How Formula 1 Teams Optimize Race Strategy and Analysis

How Does F1 Tyre Strategy Work?

When it comes to F1 race strategy, one crucial element is the tyre strategy. How does it work?

During a race weekend, teams closely monitor tyre wear, temperature, and performance to make informed decisions about when to change tyres and which type of tyres to use.

Formula 1 teams use predictive simulations to analyze the potential impact of tyre strategy on overall race performance. By considering factors like track temperature, tyre wear rates, and lap times, they can make informed decisions about when to pit and which tyres to use.

During the race, the pit wall is abuzz with activity, as teams continually monitor tyre performance and adjust their strategy accordingly. 

The ultimate goal is to find the optimal balance between tyre wear and performance, maximizing speed while minimizing the number of pit stops required.

Watch Bernie Collins’ on-demand webinar as it showcases exactly how F1 tyre strategy works.

RaceWatch: Cutting-Edge Formula 1 Technology

By watching the webinar you’ll also see how F1 tyre strategy is a complex and dynamic aspect of race strategy, and how it relies heavily on data analysis and predictive simulations. 

RaceWatch is the advanced technology used by seven F1 teams, the FIA and F1 themselves to capture and analyze data during race weekends.

One of the key advantages of RaceWatch is its ability to capture real-time data, enabling teams to make adjustments on the fly based on changing conditions. The system also provides teams with detailed telemetry data, giving them insights into every aspect of the car’s performance, from engine and transmission performance to aerodynamics and suspension.
