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

Setup for Success

Imagine finding a needle in a haystack. That's what it's like trying to find the right setup that makes for the fastest car from the billions of possible car configuration combinations. As tires wear and the track conditions change, teams can tune suspension, aerodynamics, and power unit settings to affect performance.

To prepare for a race weekend, the team runs millions of simulations, each one aiming to predict various situations during the race. These simulations take into account environmental factors, changes in weather and track, and many changes to the circuits year-on-year. In the world of F1, nothing is constant, so it's crucial for teams to constantly monitor these factors.

In this part of our "expecting the unexpected" series, learn what work the team has to do in order to predict the fastest possible car setup for race weekend.
