As each race passes, Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team come closer to achieving the lead position for the Drivers’ Championship—the pinnacle of F1 racing.
The drivers in this sport are the best of the best, controlling their cars in high-stress conditions achieving speeds of 225 mph. The cars are known for their remarkable power and speed. Each race is incredibly important and Lewis and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team must give each race their all in order to excel. Somehow, they do. Even amongst this pool of uniquely talented individuals and impressively built cars, Hamilton and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport manage to stand out.
But this is no easy feat.
The competitive edge
Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport formed a partnership with TIBCO Software, a partnership that allowed them to widen the scope of their knowledge and capabilities so that they could obtain the necessary competitive edge. Exactly what they needed to stand out.
By using data gathered throughout the race and historical data from past races, the team is able to form race strategies and make necessary adjustments on the fly in order to perform their best.
TIBCO technology has allowed Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport to see a more accurate and complete picture of the massive amount of data coming in and provided a way to weed out the unnecessary information, so that the team can focus on what really matters. Winning. With hundreds of GBs of data collected at each race combined with data at rest, getting a clear picture of what you need can get a bit messy, making TIBCO’s role quite the contributor to success.
When a mere 1/1000 second can make a difference, having a competitive edge is the only way to win.
