Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport: Setting Up for Success by Expecting the Unexpected

If at First, You Don’t Succeed, Try Again

Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport faces two major challenges in setup. The first is the sheer volume of data that needs to be processed. The second is the cadence of data. As the sport continues to change, teams that don't evolve quickly won't be successful. So, for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, one of the keys to its continued success has been continuously innovating and evolving alongside F1.

Another challenge outside of data is the rules enforced by the FIA. One such rule is using the same setup during qualifying and race. Once the setup has been chosen for qualifying, there is no going back, what's chosen carries the team through race day. So, the key is to optimize the setup performance prior to the qualifying session, using data gathered from the simulator and historical data from the previous race or circuit from years past.

In this part of our "expecting the unexpected" series, learn how the team overcomes its challenges with set up to come out ahead for race weekend.
