We are excited to announce that James Knapton will once again be tutoring at the MIA Spring School of Race Engineering!
Last year, James used his 18 years of F1 experience to teach the students some of the key parameters that drive suspension set-up in motorsport. These included a detailed insight into ride heights, roll balance, camber control and damping. James even put together a useful ride modelling tool which the students could take away with them, ready to use trackside.
James has enjoyed a rich career in Formula 1, as the Head of Vehicle Science at Force India, Sauber and Manor Racing F1 teams. His latest challenge consists of working with the likes of Adrian Newey on the Aston Martin Valkyrie project in his role as Head of Vehicle Science at Red Bull Advanced Technologies.
‘Suspension is arguably one of the most complex areas of the car to understand. It’s interaction and affect on the tyres, ride height and other vehicle dynamic parameters are essential to the overall behaviour and driveability of the car and is therefore crucial for Race Engineers to get to grips with.
‘I am very much looking forward to teaching the students about the most important aspects of suspension and suspension setup. I am also keen to meet enthusiastic engineers who may be suitable to apply for some of the roles we have to offer at Red Bull Advanced Technologies.’
