FieldView and CFD Provide Red Bull Racing with an Edge for Race Titles

Rutherford, N.J. (Sept. 2, 2010) — With just six races remaining in the 2010 Formula 1 season, the drive for the coveted championship is a close one. Following the Belgium Grand Prix last weekend, Red Bull Racing leads the Constructors Championship standings, and drivers Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel hold the second and third positions in the Driver's Championship. Every advantage will be important to help this talented team capture Formula 1’s highest honors.

One significant advantage Red Bull Racing brings to every race is a streamlined, automated CFD (computational fluid dynamics) workflow that allows them to quickly and efficiently analyze their car’s aerodynamic performance. More than 80% of their aerodynamic design work is driven through CFD. For nearly 10 years, Red Bull Racing’s CFD post-processor of choice has been FieldView™ from Intelligent Light.

Get an inside look at Red Bull Racing’s drive to the winner’s circle at Nathan Sykes, Red Bull Racing’s CFD team leader, discusses the challenges of working in the fast-paced world of Formula 1 and how FieldView and a highly efficient CFD process are helping the team achieve winning results.
