The Challenge

Every season sees a never-ending pursuit of performance improvements for engineers and drivers alike. Cars are constantly upgraded with better components and set ups, with drivers continually having to adapt to new tracks and new changes. Limited opportunities for track testing can lead to problems for engineers and drivers. With very little time to properly test and train before each race weekend, one error or issue can render this valuable time lost.
