Formula one racing teams

Look at a typical racing team. NASCAR, Indy car, or Formula one racing teams have developed specific and targeted routines for their drivers and pit crews. Years ago, these very teams had little in the way of safety devices or ergonomic tools, and the drivers and crews paid with their lives at times. In today’s racing world, the drivers and pit crews use highly detailed tools to help advance their team in the race while also keeping team members safe. The crew chief and his assistants monitor all aspects of the team to include fuel usage, tire usage, tire pressure, engine diagnostics, as well as other details. To indicate the importance of such details, racing teams have both won and also lost races due to fuel usage.

Question 1. Using your favorite search engine, locate and watch race footage, or actually watch a race, and describe some of the safety tools the teams use to prevent injury in the pit area. Specifically, look at the fueler, the tire changer, and the tire wrangler. Also, look at items that are ergonomically beneficial to these team members. Your response should be at least 150 words.

Question 2. While viewing the race footage, spend some time watching the driver while he or she is in the car. What devices does the driver use specifically for safety? What about the ergonomic devices that allow the driver to turn left at very high speeds for several hundreds of miles without sustaining either short- or long-term injury. Discuss this in terms of body measurements and modeling. Your response should be at least 150 words.

Question 3. The crew chief spends significant amounts of time in practice with the pit crew. They try to reduce valuable seconds from their work times with the car while in the pits. Discuss several ways, using the items you learned from this unit (analysis, measurement, modeling, sampling) that the crew chief might use to evaluate the team. As a safety professional assigned to the team and answering to the team’s owners, give one or two suggestions to improve the safety of the crew. Your response should be at least 150 words.
