F1 corners can be epic and game-changing. Whether it’s a hard, 90-degree turn in a city circuit or a tight hairpin, turns are pivotal points in every race—some more than others.
The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team knows every track’s turns by heart—every radius, apex, drag reduction system (DRS) zone, pitch, and more. But to win, drivers need information and instinct. Data gathered from high-tech, onboard lasers that are run on each track is uploaded to simulators, giving drivers and engineers a chance to see how car prototypes handle the challenges—and what changes can be made before each race. Because every track is different, data needs to be accessible and analyzed week by week.
