Data Analytics in Motorsport: The Sauber F1 Team Experience

During the ra­cing sea­son roughly March through November teams travel to 19 coun­tries. Like all the teams, the Sauber F1 Team heav­ily re­lies upon data ana­lyt­ics to con­stantly in­nov­ate its car design and ra­cing strategies.

During a typ­ic­al race week­end, about 25 GB of tele­metry gets col­lec­ted in total. Every year, some 20 TB of data are col­lec­ted, stored, and ana­lyzed.

Manufacturers Are Diving Into Big Data

Industrial com­pan­ies of all sizes are con­front­ing massive volumes of data fin­an­cial trans­ac­tions, lo­gist­ics stats, RFID and bar-code data, im­ages, web ana­lyt­ics, so­cial me­dia streams, ma­chine data, sensor readouts all stream­ing in at high ve­lo­city and in a dizzy­ing vari­ety of formats. The “big data” con­cept has emerged in re­cent years as an im­port­ant new decision-making tool for man­u­fac­tur­ers.

Data visu­al­iz­a­tion: New tools for il­lus­tra­tion, in­sight and in­spir­a­tion

The emer­ging field of “data visu­al­iz­a­tion” brings to­geth­er quant­it­at­ive in­form­a­tion with tech­no­logy and graph­ic design to tell stor­ies and con­vey ideas. As data about our en­vir­on­ment, travel, work, on­line activ­it­ies and oth­er be­ha­vi­or in­creases ex­po­nen­tially, visu­al­iz­a­tion tools can help dis­cern the forest from the trees of rows and columns, in or­der to un­der­stand trends and make de­cisions. Moving bey­ond the stand­ard pie charts and bar graphs, cre­at­ive visu­al artists, demo­graph­ers, journ­al­ists and oth­ers are de­vel­op­ing ex­cit­ing new ways to marry data with visu­al rep­res­ent­a­tion.
