The ‘avatar’ of the F1 driver seat may improve performance and comfort

Williams Racing F1 Team has partnered with university experts to develop the first-known driver seat ‘avatar’ using pioneering biomechanics technology. A pilot project has successfully revolutionised how Formula 1 racing seats can be designed using biomechanics technology to improve a driver’s comfort and performance. Latifi added: “For me, the fit and comfort in the driver’s seat are probably one of the most important things. Sometimes we will go through multiple race events before we have a seat they are happy with. In the future, we hope to learn more about how the driver’s seat affects forces to reduce injury risk.”.
