Learn how our solution portfolio including remote connectivity, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence helps the teams solve essential challenges. Together, we push the boundaries for what is technically possible in teams where every second counts.
When partnering with TeamViewer, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team addressed essential challenges, such as running lab tests out of hours, supporting the trackside crew via remote engineers, and reducing CO2–emissions despite travelling the world’s race tracks. Here’s how TeamViewer helped solve these challenges.
The ability to remotely monitor and connect to the UK’s Test and Development Lab enables technicians and engineers to successfully run tests out of hours and conduct multiple tests simultaneously. This has considerably improved test speed and efficiency.
Regulations allow a maximum of just 60 technical team members permitted trackside on race weekends. TeamViewer provides an essential remote connection between the small trackside crew and the UK-based engineers and data. This translates into a significant competitive advantage when minutes saved can result in points won.
Global travel is a prerequisite in Formula One, but for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team, TeamViewer’s remote support solution has reduced the number of people required to travel to race weekends as well as the need for third parties (suppliers, machinery/tooling experts) to physically visit Brackley for repair work.
