Simulation software helps Red Bull Racing team drive to victory

27 October 2022

Powered by Ansys simulation software, Oracle Red Bull Racing has won World Constructors’ Formula One World Championship.

Ansys is proud to congratulate Oracle Red Bull Racing for winning the Formula One World Constructors’ Championship for the 2022 season on 23 October. 


The team also took home the Drivers’ Championship earlier in the season when Max Verstappen triumphed as the season’s top driver for the second consecutive year on 9 October. 


As an Ansys Innovation Partner since 2008, the team looks to Ansys’ simulation solutions to dominate on the track. 
This year, new regulation changes for the 2022 racing season had a substantive impact on vehicle aerodynamics, requiring Oracle Red Bull Racing to rethink its designs. 


Ansys simulation software helped Oracle Red Bull Racing better understand airflow around those changes, then use the data to make holistic design improvements and improve aero performance.


Specifically, Oracle Red Bull Racing employs Ansys’s simulation solutions for aerodynamics and the engine cooling intakes by using Ansys CFD, materials data management and optimisation with Ansys Granta MI, and virtual impact testing and impact with Ansys LS-DYNA to secure the win. 


“Ansys simulation gives us the confidence to benchmark against rapidly changing requirements both on and off the track,” said Matt Cadieux, CIO at Oracle Red Bull Racing. 


“The iterative design capabilities of Ansys tools help us quickly get up to speed to identify and address any opportunities for improvement and respond in real time.”


“Ansys is proud to be a long-term innovation partner and contributor to Oracle Red Bull Racing’s championship-winning car,” said Shane Emswiler, Senior Vice President of products at Ansys.


“The team’s victories this year in what was expected to be a hyper-competitive season are a great success and a testament to the longstanding partnership between Oracle Red Bull Racing and Ansys.”
