WHITE COMMERCIAL + SINGAPORE = A WINNING FORMULA
Chris White recently attended the 2018 Singapore Airlines Formula 1 Grand Prix, as a guest of one of the teams, and was given a breath-taking tour of the team’s trackside facilities. The Singapore Grand Prix is held on the Marina Bay street circuit and is one of two night races, with an attendance this year of 263,000 people. Lewis Hamilton topped the podium ahead of Max Verstappen and Sebastian Vettal, putting Hamilton into a 40 point lead in the drivers’ championship.

Chris White comments “When we are acting for the teams our focus is on reducing costs, maximising operational flexibility and working with the team in order to prioritise their spend on the car. Singapore was an excellent opportunity for us to see the front end of the team, as we are usually responsible for the back end of the procurement and development of the facilities to produce these fantastic machines. I was particularly blown away by some of the leading edge technical aspects relating to communications, AI and relationships between the trackside and those in the UK as only 60 members of the team are allowed trackside.”
