STAYING ON THE PACE…

Back in 1975 the first telemetry (on-board computer) was used on a McLaren Indy car, later to be adopted in the early 1980s for Formula One. It was a big step forward, helping drivers and teams analyse every split second out on the circuit.

…AS THE PACE GETS QUICKER

The speed of sending and receiving information is faster than ever with the latest Electronic Control Unit – the brain of the car. It’s so precise that the driver, car and team can work as one. Connected to the on-board sensors, it can make adjustments in a millisecond to maximise performance throughout the race.
