This month we celebrate five years as an official partner of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team. Data fuels performance. In excess of 100,000 data points are generated every single lap of an F1 race, over 3500+ gigabytes of data are transferred during every race weekend, and billions of racing scenarios and car configurations are simulated and optimized. TIBCO technology is there for it all.
The original vision of this data-fueled partnership remains: “This partnership brings together two like-minded organizations, each with a strong commitment to pursuing excellence through innovation and shared dedication to delivering world-class products and services.” Victories fueled by faster, smarter decisions driven by TIBCO.
Victories Fueled by Data
As part of its partnership with TIBCO, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team uses data-driven analytic insights and decision-making to optimize performance at every opportunity. Data analytics, visual insights, predictive modeling, and even our new cost visualizer tool have helped propel the Mercedes team to success since our partnership inception.
Not all data is gathered on the track. The Mercedes team runs millions of simulations over a race season—and uses the resulting data to develop insights that help the team win. These simulations mimic the real track experience—acting as digital twins—and maximize the benefits of limited on-track testing time. The Mercedes team uses streaming and visual analytics tools, including TIBCO Spotfire, to evaluate simulation results and craft optimal race strategies.
Partnership Success by the Numbers
The Mercedes team has achieved unprecedented success since the 2017 season when our partnership began, including:
- 4 World Driver Championships
- 5 Consecutive World Constructor’s Championships
- 60 First-Place Wins
- 138 Podium Finishes
The numbers are truly historic.
We Thrive as One
The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team’s success with data is built on more than a decade of analytic capabilities. Of course, data fuels industries beyond the track. The world’s largest enterprises choose TIBCO to solve their most complex data challenges involving:
- Connecting any application or data source
- Unifying data for greater access, trust, and control
- Predicting outcomes in real-time and at scale
