Altran renews Lotus F1 Team partnership

Altran, the global leader in innovation and high-tech engineering consulting, has renewed its Technical Partnership with Lotus F1 Team for the 2014 season. The announcement was made today by Mike Simms, CEO of Altran UK, and Matthew Carter, CEO of Lotus F1 Team.

The partnership was launched in 2013, and has built upon Altran's previous relationship with the team, which it served with distinction as an engineering and design partner from 2002 to 2010.  Altran will continue to provide Lotus F1 Team with leading-edge innovation and technological support services through a team of Altran engineers based on site at Whiteways Technical Centre in Enstone, Oxfordshire, the home of Lotus F1 Team. During 2013, Altran's engineers provided crucial support on the development of key components of the recently unveiled E22 racing car, including the gearbox dyno, the front wing and the rear suspension.

Mike Simms, CEO of Altran UK (below left), said: "We are delighted to continue our partnership with Lotus F1 Team, a relationship that is based on a shared passion for innovation and a relentless desire to stay ahead of the competition. The 2014 season brings with it a raft of new racing regulations, which require all F1 teams to undergo a major change of direction in terms of engineering design and execution. Altran is playing a critical role in enabling Lotus F1 Team to rise to this challenge successfully, and we look forward to an exciting and successful year ahead."

Matthew Carter, CEO of Lotus F1 Team (below right), added: "Technical Partnerships provide vital support to our engineering endeavours and their continuity and quality represent a key strength of the team's DNA. The collaboration with Altran has provided invaluable contributions in different moments of the team's history and we are particularly pleased to see their support being renewed in a moment when a vision for innovation and engineering are more critical than ever."
