MOTEGI RACING IN FORMULA 1 AND FORMULA E
acecar performance doesn’t just begin
and end with engines, aerodynamics and
tires. From humble club racing machines
to the rarefied heights of a Formula 1 or
Formula E car, each is a complex dynamic
system, where every component is critical.
And that’s definitely the case for wheels.
“Wheels are the final link between the
chassis and the tires,” says Andrew
Green, technical director of the Sahara
Force India F1 team. “All of the loads are
channelled through those four points.
So, in relation to other technical partners
Force India and FIA Formula E
Championship squad NextEV have both
chosen to work with Motegi Racing as the
technical partner for the supply of their
race wheels. In the case of Force India,
Motegi Racing is completing its third
season in the role, which just so happens
to be the team’s most successful to date.
