Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motorsport and automotive engineering
Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen might be the drivers that dominate the headlines, but the Formula 1 circus goes well beyond the high-octane races that we see on the weekends.
The 10 teams competing on track can be comprised of thousands of engineers, designers and technicians, who are constantly pushing to secure the smallest of gains that can make the world of difference.
Nicknamed ‘the fastest R&D lab on Earth', so much of the incredible technology we witness on modern-day F1 cars has guided the development of the road cars we drive every day.
The modern car is made up of so many basic safety features, like seat belts or rear-view mirrors, that have been passed down through generations of motorsport knowledge, there's every chance your next car lease will contain more racing heritage than you realise.
