This week’s episode of The Race F1 Tech Show is all about those disembodied voices we hear over team radio: the race engineers.
What do they do? How important is their relationship with a driver? And what can they do to get the most out of a car and a driver?
To help answer those questions, host Edd Straw and former F1 technical director Gary Anderson welcome Julien Simon-Chautemps, Kimi Raikkonen’s former race engineer at Alfa Romeo, onto the show for a feature-length discussion.
Before that, Anderson casts an eye over Ferrari’s ongoing technical troubles, and how the team might solve them, following its disastrous double DNF in Baku.
Later on, he also gives his views on one listener’s ingenious idea on how Mercedes might be able to help its drivers deal with porpoising.
