A Formula 1 car is all of these things, but it is more than just a simple machine. It is long days and even longer nights - the blood, sweat and tears of a team made real. It is weekends on the road, missed birthdays, lost hours in airports. It's sacrifice, stress and bumps in the road. It is the physical expression of a 1,500-strong group of designers, engineers, mechanics, technicians, executives and more, competing at the pinnacle of world motorsport.
It's the thrill of the fight, the rush of rising to a new challenge. And more, a determination to innovate and go beyond the expected. It's mathematics and angles, CAD, CAM, CFD and high performance computing power. It's brutal efficiency. It's a product of a world-class technology campus, and thousands of hours spent designing, machining, creating and building a machine capable of taking on the best in the world.
A Formula 1 car is bleeding-edge engineering. It's the innovators and grafters who poured their love into its creation. It's helping to shape the future of powertrains and automotive technology. It's 200 high-frequency sensors transmitting wirelessly. It's complex data science, management and protection. It's the push to bring 5G to life. It's accelerating the future.
And what about our Formula One car? Our Formula One car is about setting the benchmark. The strive for a fifth World Championship crown. A mark of defiance to our rivals that we will not falter, nor let it slip. A chance for this team to fight again and earn a place in history alongside the greatest this sport has ever known.
