MEng Aeronautical Engineering student Elizabeth is spending a year in industry at Williams Racing.
I love problem solving and being creative and that’s exactly what I’m able to do here.
Analysing each car’s performance is a big part of my role: I process and analyse track data, looking at the car’s technical performance and briefing the drivers on what they can do to get the most out of the machine.
The projects I'm working on could help a driver win one day!"
The team is about to select its drivers for next year’s Formula One races so I’ve been looking at all the Driver In Loop Simulator (DIL) data from several of the prospective drivers and have designed new tools, using raw lap time data, to assess their performance.
It’s really exciting to see the projects I’m working on in action and to know they could help a driver to win one day!
