“You need good maths skills to delve into aerodynamics, and that can be fun. We will look at a few useful calculations you can do by hand to work out some aero forces. It’s a special year this year in F1. We have a close championship, and we also have a completely new set of rules next year... So, that means Willem can reveal some secrets – and he loves doing that! If you are into F1 or if you are into aerodynamics, don’t miss this talk!

 

Starting in motorsport during his university years, he’s worked in the field of aerodynamics for 30 years, bringing hundreds of people into motorsport employment.

Professor Willem Toet has maintained his close, long term, connections to F1 and, having run the aero groups for Benetton, Ferrari, BAR/Honda and BMW Sauber/Sauber and he knows the tricks that the teams use to maximise performance.

 

He remains connected to the Sauber group that builds the Alfa Romeo F1 cars and will be spending an increasing amount of time working with us at the University of Bolton.
