Formula 1 is not only the pinnacle of motorsport, a championship featuring ten teams building the world’s fastest and most advanced racing cars. F1 is also a kind of experimental laboratory, where the latest technological solutions are developed, as well as a testing ground where they are tested, and after that some of them are used in the automotive industry. Although not all.

The technical director of the Mercedes team, James Ellison, believes that the amount of knowledge and experience accumulated in Formula 1 has not yet received proper assessment, and first of all this applies to the achievements of the past twenty years.

During an interview with Mercedes’ press service, Allison was asked what aspect of modern Formula 1 he considers the most underrated?

“In answering this question, I’m not thinking about any specific innovations that you see on racing cars,” said the British engineer. – First of all, you need to pay attention to what no one is talking about: over the past 20 years, Formula 1 has gone through a very dynamic phase of development. From a purely empirical search, when we blindly tried to try something and saw whether this or that solution worked or not, there was a transition to more purposeful processes, which are based mainly on a scientific approach.

The most important changes in Formula 1 are that the role of physical knowledge has increased, the understanding of all these aspects has become deeper, although this is hardly talked about. Ultimately, this is what separates leaders from those behind. “
