Re-Visiting: Anatomy of the new Formula One Race Car with Bob Bell- Part 2
Formula One is evolving to remain relevant and interesting in the 21st century.
A unique age where if it isn’t green enough, it can get ‘canceled’, and if it doesn’t trend on social media, it doesn’t matter!
This evolution involves making decisions affecting how the engine is designed as well as transforming the sport’s interaction with the fans. F1, like any other successful business, is implementing these changes one step at a time and learning as it goes.

He’s been in Formula One racing for 36 years and has won several championships with different teams. Today, he’ll walk us through the changes that he expects the sport to make in the next decade.
