Nowadays each F1 car is equipped with around 200 sensors measuring everything from speed to performance, and all that data is streamed into massive servers to be analysed. Engine performance, tire grip, brake function, telemetry, fuel consumption – absolutely everything can be measured and improved upon. This level of detailed analysis is how F1 engineering teams know what to change, how to optimise and keep the sport improving.
How AI Helps F1 Engineering Teams
The F1 engineering team spends most of the race looking at screens, keeping their eyes fixed on incoming data that tells them how the car is performing. All plans and strategies depend on this data, and everything is flexible to accommodate new racing tech developments which are reported in real time. AI is starting to support Formula One engineers to better understand the finer details of what this data means, and to make widespread changes in more structured and time-efficient ways. The staggering amount of data generated by the cars simply can’t be analyzed fully by humans. AI can be programmed to analyses certain elements of the car’s output, or different algorithms can be combined to provide a complete picture of the car’s performance and its position in the race.
