A Formula 1 in schools - Team
My job as Team Manager is to supervise the team and make sure that everyone completes his tasks punctually and in good quality. I stay in touch with most of the sponsors and ensure that Christoph receives the information he needs for the financial plan.
Finding and contacting possible sponsors is my main task. It is also my responsibility to create a well-structured timetable. I often work together with Fiona, so our social media-appearance and our marketing concept are in perfect sync.
As one of our team’s two constructors, it is my main task to take care of the weight of our car and to make sure that it is manufacturable and stable. I also do the theoretical calculations.
It is my job to organize the production of the car, which means that I look at different manufacturing methods and supervise the assembly of the individual parts. Furthermore, I create our basic financial plan.
Together with Finn M. I oversee the car’s construction and the prototypes, which we test before creating our final racing car. I mostly concentrate on the aerodynamical qualities, for which I use the virtual wind tunnel FloEFD from SolidEdge.
Formula 1 in Schools is an international competition, in which more than 50 countries participate. Germany is one of them. The main goal is to construct a miniature racing car by using CAD software, which is then built with modern manufacturing methods like Multi Jet Fusion. A professional painting is also necessary. The racing time of the car is one of the most important parts – it determines 1/5 of the points. The race itself takes place on a 20-metre racing track. The cars are driven with a CO2 cartridge and gain speed up to 20 metres per second. Nearly half of the maximum points are made up by the production and the race of the cars. So, where can you get the rest of the points? Besides the car the team has several other tasks: One of them is to create two portfolios with eight pages each. The first one is called “Portfolio Technic”. Here, information about the car itself, the construction and the testing are written down. The second portfolio is the “Portfolio Enterprise”, which is about the team’s project management and the marketing concept. In addition, the partners and sponsors are noted. Furthermore, the team has to hold an eight-minute presentation on the competition day, in which they present the team roles, their logo and the design. At last, each team needs to build their own pit display to represent their sponsors on the competition day.
In the season 2020/21 the current team consisted of two different teams, therefore we listed both of them here.
