Suspension & Drivetrain

"It's all about compromise"

- Tommaso Fricano, Chief Suspension & Drivetrain

The Suspension & Drivetrain department provides the crucial link between the car and the track. The behavior of the car whilst driving starts with the setup of the suspension and dampers, meaning they need to perform optimally in order to provide the car with the best handling and therefore the best performance. The drivetrain serves to deliver the power of the motor to the asphalt of the racetrack. This again influences the drive-ability and direct performance of the car. Although a variety of engineers represents the department, the tasks executed mostly favor mechanical engineers, with mass-damper systems playing a major role.
