The F1 Season Starts Sunday
The F1 season starts on Sunday. The Melbourne Grand Prix, sees the beginning of a nail-biting competition that will see F1 drivers race around the world.
As a key supplier of production Additive Manufacturing (AM) 3T RPD will be on each starting grid of every race. But, have you ever wondered what AM products are on board an F1 racing car? Wonder no more, simply click on our video infographic or our .pdf infographic to find out.
Each AM part that is installed in a racing car, helps race engineers to reduce its weight and ultimately to help it to go faster around the track. AM allows F1 teams to continually improve their cars as the development process evolves.
F1 engineering is one of the most arduous and difficult engineering challenges in industry today. Some people might say that the time, energy and excitement that goes in to Formula1 is unnecessary (not us you understand), but as one of the leading suppliers of AM parts for the teams and fans we would echo Nicki Lauda’s words when he said “what would life be if we only did what was necessary”.
To make sure that you don’t miss a race, here’s the 2017 Grand Prix schedule:
|22nd Oct||Circuit of the Americas, Austin||USA|
|29th Oct||Mexico City||Mexico|
|12th Nov||Sao Paulo||Brazil|
|26th Nov||Abu Dhabi||Abu Dhabi|
3T RPD wishes all of the Formula1 teams a successful and safe 2017 season and look forward to the Melbourne Grand Prix kicking off another superlative season.
