Moving the World Champions

I never intended jobinf1.com to be a recruitment site and as such never intended to post job adverts on here but I get so many requests for examples of non-engineering jobs that I didn’t want to let this pass.

A number of you have asked about site management and logistics jobs, with background in haulage, the armed services etc. so I wanted to show this current add for a vacancy at Red Bull Racing :

  1. Hi, I am a big fan of motorsport and I found the blog very useful. I want to ask something and I know you will give me your opinion because it is difficult for you to say yes or no. Is it helpful to be notice for a team, If I do a research project that could improve some part of the perfomance of the Team, systems, tests, mechanics? and send it to each team? Or it is just spam for the Team. Thank you

    • Hi Gina

      Thanks for the question.

      Tough one really. I think I would advise against it on balance. The biggest difficulty is knowing what the problem is before you try and solve it. This is actually a big skill that people often miss. If you try and solve what you “think” is a problem you will probably do the wrong thing and it will neither be useful or impressive. Just spam as you say.

      On the other hand, if you can make contact prior to this and discuss and agree a real problem to solve then its potentially very very good. Difficulty is making that contact as normally it will also appear as spam. Maybe identify an individual(s) via research on LinkedIn and try some direct contact. It’s worth a go.

      Also try outside of F1 but still in racing. Advantage here is 2 things, firstly far fewer people try this route and so any contact you make appears less like spam. Second, non F1 teams find research much more difficult as they don’t have big resources so they are happier to have someone do it for them(for free). If you can do this, it looks just as good on a resume /application to F1 team later.

      Hope that helps?
