Newey to spearhead Engineering Academy To Find The Next F1 innovators

Red Bull Racing’s Adrian Newey and his technical staff have launched a new programme with the team's title partner Infiniti to offer engineering graduates the opportunity to complete a twelve month internship at the team’s Headquarters in Milton Keynes, as part of the ‘Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy’.

The scheme - set up to bring through the next group of future F1 innovators - will begin in September 2014 and includes work in both Milton Keynes and at the Infiniti Technical Centre, just eight miles down the road in Cranfield.

The candidates will be whittled down to two interns who will be given the chance to work alongside some of the leading brains in motorsport.

The Academy's stated goals are increasing performance and innovation within Formula One, before making transferable use out of the skills, knowledge and materials that can aid in the innovation of road cars.

“One of the key advantages of our partnership with Infiniti is our ability to utilise their resources, from materials to processes and people,” added Adrian Newey, Chief Technical Officer, Infiniti Red Bull Racing.

“As such it is really interesting for us to benefit from a worldwide selection process which brings the best new talent through our door. The speed of technical development in Formula One means that fresh thinking is crucial in keeping ahead of the other teams and we hope that providing an opportunity for world class graduates to work with us will provide long term performance benefits for us and for Infiniti.”

“The Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy is a unique opportunity for top engineering talents from around the world,” said Johan De Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company.

“They can experience the highest levels of performance and precision in both Formula One and in road car engineering. We are looking for candidates who share our passion, and we open up an avenue for them to become an elite member of the Infiniti engineering team in the future.”

Due to the global reach of the Academy, the selection process will take place across several world regions.

The applicants will be assessed on their performance potential and their ability to think innovatively, with a group of selected finalists presenting their ideas to technical staff from both Infiniti and Red Bull Racing, before the final candidates are announced during the weekend of 2014 British Grand Prix.

When a journeyman driver's F1 career lasted just 800m

Nikita Mazepin’s Formula 1 debut at the Bahrain Grand Prix lasted mere corners before he wiped himself out in a shunt, but his financial backing affords him a full season. Back in 1993 though, Marco Apicella was an F1 driver for just 800m before a first corner fracas ended his career. Here’s the story of his very short time at motorsport’s pinnacle.
