FLIR Systems Announces Infiniti Red Bull Racing Partnership

FLIR Systems has announced that it has been named an Innovation Partner with Infiniti Red Bull Racing. The winner of four consecutive Formula One World Champions in both Constructor's and Driver's categories, Infiniti Red Bull Racing will work with FLIR to gather temperature data from its 2014 challenger, the RB10.
In the partnership, FLIR will develop solutions using miniature thermal cameras to provide the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team with unique insights into the thermal characteristics of their cars' components and operations.

The introduction of 1.6 liter V6 Turbocharged engines with dual energy recovery systems has presented significant cooling challenges for all Formula One teams in 2014. Managing car temperatures effectively will be a key aspect of ensuring reliability, a factor which is expected to play a significant role in determining the outcome of this season. Commenting on the collaboration, Christian Horner, Team Principal of Infiniti Red Bull Racing, said "This year sees the most fundamental changes to Formula One in well over a decade. The team which is most efficient in gathering the relevant data, learning effectively, and adapting accordingly will be the one which triumphs in this season of transition. The insights which FLIR technology can give us will be critical to our understanding of the new car and could give us a key edge over our rivals".
