17 June 2020

Speaker Pat Symonds, Chief Technical Officer at Formula One gives a fascinating insight to innovation during a crisis and what an industry was able to achieve in such a short space of time for the potential benefit of society.

Risky Business programme description: How Formula 1 rose to the challenge posed to the industry by the government to produce ventilators to treat COVID-19 patients. It explains how Project Pitlane required collaboration with clinicians, the military and formula 1 engineers to re-purpose CPAP machine design for use to treat patients within four weeks – a process which would normally take three years.
