Building on the success of last year’s F1 Drivers’ Championship, the team’s 2022 season will feature expanded use of Oracle Cloud across its most significant areas of operation including analytics-based race strategy, optimized engine development, AI and machine learning-powered driver training and a tailored fan experience.
Taking advantage of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) during last season’s championship run, the team increased the number of simulations they ran by a thousand to improve the accuracy of their predictions and sharpen their decision-making. In addition, they accelerated simulation speed by ten, which gave race strategists more time to make the right call. Equally important, OCI significantly reduced the cost of billions of simulations, allowing the team to cost-effectively improve performance on the track, which is critical for success under F1’s stringent spending regulations.
This season, OCI will enable the Oracle Red Bull Racing Team to expand the volume and variety of data they analyze and increase the speed at which simulations run in order to better predict tactics that will lead to the podium.
Along with its innovative on-track initiatives, Oracle Red Bull Racing will continue to deliver an improved experience to its global fan base. Last season, Oracle and Red Bull Racing launched a fan loyalty platform powered by OCI – The Red Bull Racing Paddock – to bring the excitement of F1 to fans all over the world.
