  1. Hi,
    Many thanks for this blog!
    I will follow an automotive course (Cranfield or Oxford Brookes) in the near future. Firstly, I wanted to be aerodynamicist but I am also especially interested in race strategy (it was something like my child dream…). Now that I am about to get a precious certificate, I am hesitating between this two kinds of job. However, I know nothing about being a strategeist. How do they work ? Do they use laptime simulation software? What are the required skills? What do they do after a grand prix or during a grand prix when the car are not running?
    Many thanks for your help!

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for this Blog. This is one of the most useful articles on Motorsports especially Formula 1 I follow. I am doing Master’s in Automotive in USA. My interest is Vehicle Dynamics and I have great passion towards Motorsports. I would like to know the Job role and requirements of a Vehicle Dynamics Engineer in general. I don’t have strong knowledge on Vehicle Dynamics now. So I want to know learn on Vehicle Dynamics( willing to learn from Basics too). Though I did a course on Vehicle Dynamics in Undergrad I don’t feel like I have learned much.
    I would appreciate books, software, resources( blogs, website etc), courses and other recommendations I can utilize.
