Everyone knows that Formula 1 is as fast-paced as it gets, with every car on the grid capable of going from 0 to 124 mph (200km/h) in about four seconds and averaging at a speed of 225mph. But things don’t just need to move quickly on the track for a Formula 1 team to be a success. Behind the scenes, engineers and mechanics need to know exactly what they are doing – and make any fixes as quickly as possible, especially in the high-pressured situation of the pit stop, where every single second counts. When you bear in mind that each team has several cars on the track, this is no mean feat. says Davide Hanan, MD of QlikView SA.
