Aerodynamics Design Engineer, Red Bull Racing (F1)
The excitement, innovation, teamwork and pace of projects [at F1] overrules the risk.
Laura Anne Davies
What do you do?
I design aerodynamic surfaces for computational fluid dynamic simulations, design and integrate mechanical/aero parts for wind tunnel models for aero testing.
Why did you choose this field?
F1 is a fast paced engineering environment, that understandably comes with career risks but the excitement, innovation, teamwork and pace of projects overrules the risk.
What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?
I do not have any regrets with regards to how I have achieved anything. I wish I knew the options we’re available, prior to them becoming available to me.
Why do you love working in STEM?
I look forward to being given the opportunity to innovate and be challenged in an environment with like minded individuals, as part of a team.
Best advice for next generation?
Be yourself and be the best version of you.
