For many fans of Formula One, the sport exists between lights and chequered flag on a Sunday afternoon. It begins and ends with the exploits of the drivers on the track. But this is merely the tip of the spear. The reality of modern F1 is that of a complex and intertwined operation, every part of which needs to perform near its limit if success is to be achieved. From the pit crew searching for the ultimate repeatable pit stop, to the inspiration of the designers, the application of engineers and the herculean efforts of an army of fabricators and machinists. Much of our success is thanks to the diversity of thought and spectrum of skill sets held within the team, our ability to recognise unique contributions from individual team members is just a part of why we love what we do.

Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated, flexible and innovative engineer to join our Vehicle Dynamics Suspensions Systems team. This group sits within the Performance Group, whose primary function is to optimise the performance of the car during race events, provide direction and solutions that maximise performance of future car concepts and in season development steps. The main purpose of the role is to improve car performance with a particular focus on the suspension topology, ride and handling dynamics, aero and tyre optimisation.

Your role:

  • Correlation of simulation models at both component and vehicle levels using laboratory and track data to improve suspension prediction work
  • Implement and develop new tools, methods, procedures to analyse and improve car behaviour
  • Create and implement unique suspension concepts to find car performance on current and future cars
  • Provide predictive performance metrics for simulation, race and test events
  • Perform and develop pre event simulations aimed at suspension ride and handling performance on track
  • Race support for health checks of the setup of the car and setup direction support

To be successful, you will have:

  • A degree within Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering or Physics, as well as excellent capabilities in Dynamics and Vibrations, Mechanics, Applied Mathematics
  • A very good working knowledge of Matlab / Python / Dymola
  • Knowledge of vehicle dynamics principles is essential. Knowledge of multi-body systems would be a distinctive advantage
  • Previous experience in a similar role in Motorsport will be beneficial
  • You will interact with various groups within the organisation and will therefore need good communication and teamwork skills
