Renault Sport (F1) - Pit Stop Performance Improvement

  • We implemented a range of measures designed to boost the performance of the teams of mechanics who undertake pit-stops. The teams recognised that even small errors made during a pit-stop were likely to have significant impact.
  • We utilised a staged approach of investigation and analysis followed up by feedback and group training.
  • Cognitive task analysis of pit-stop procedures was undertaken that made use of eye movement recording. This led to the designing of eye movement training interventions to improve task consistency.
  • Results were incorporated into our Teamwork, Communication and Leadership (TCL) course in the form of eye data video comparisons and team-building using an immersive VR task.
