Winning formula

Dr Nick Trevorrow (BE(Mech)(Hons) 2002, PhD 2007) has recorded a flying start to his engineering career, working with Honda Racing Formula One team (F1) in the UK just after graduating.

Dr Trevorrow's job was to improve vehicle speed through data analysis.

"There are around 400 to 500 sensors on a racing car which transmit data back to the garage. My job was to monitor variables, such as brake, oil, water temperatures, steering, throttle and brake pressure and suggest adjustments to the car to improve its performance," Dr Trevorrow said.

While at Honda, Dr Trevorrow streamlined the race data collection process.

"In the past, all team members used their own measurement tools to analyse performance. You could have ten different people working on a similar thing and end up with ten different answers that didn't necessarily agree," he said.

Dr Trevorrow initially secured a job as a tyre engineer at Honda in 2006, soon after completing his PhD on the performance of racing tyres. He is now pursuing a career in the Australian racing industry.
