How many people work in the RSR?
"The Race Support Room has a maximum capacity of 30 people. The majority of those are volunteers - industrial placement students who choose to give up their spare time to support the race team.
"In addition to those volunteers, there are also engineers from various departments - tyre, systems and race engineers as well as aerodynamicists and strategists. Finally, the RSR is also a training facility for young team members aiming to join the race team."
What do the people in the RSR do?
"One of the most important jobs of the industrial placement students is listening to the radio messages from the other teams.
"This form of eavesdropping was made possible in 2016, when the teams opted to bring back the chance to give engineering support to the drivers over the radio - a form of communication that had been banned for the 2016 season and left the drivers without any support when they encountered a technical issue.
"The people in the RSR also look at the various video feeds to see the race from as many angles as possible.
"If, for example, there's contact with one of our cars, they will find the right video snippet as quickly as possible and send it over to the aerodynamicists, so the footage can be analysed and checked for possible bodywork damages."
