Electrical Engineer for Wind Tunnel Systems & Measurement Technology (PLC Developer)

For the aerodynamic development of our Formula 1 cars, we have been operating with one of the most modern wind tunnels in the world in Hinwil since 2004. Aerodynamic and system data is generated here on a 24/7 basis. Only by analyzing this data quickly and precisely are we able to make the right decisions for the next development steps.

The processes and techniques we use enable us to carry out the necessary workload in technology development and even set trends.
