Digital Twins in F1™ Racing Throw Down Big Gains for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport

Several factors contribute to a Formula One™ car’s performance—design, aerodynamics, configuration, strategy—and an unsung hero: simulator analytics. F1™ teams, like Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, invest in simulators that mimic the real track experience and maximize the benefits of limited on-track testing time. The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport simulator and surrounding technology have proven to be a winning combination with growing importance, as technology continues to rapidly advance.

In this part of our “Digital Twins in F1™ Racing” series, we sit down with Loic Serra, performance director, Ivo Marlais, lead simulation engineer, and Michael Sansoni, senior performance and simulation engineer of the team’s Vehicle Dynamics Group to understand how they use the simulator to test components and developments, and how they use drivers’ feedback to understand the implications of car performance and race strategy.
