Alpine F1® Team: A Visit to Enstone

Alpine F1 Team (formerly known as Renault DP World F1® Team) uses VGSTUDIO MAX for the analysis and visualization of CT data at their chassis development headquarters in Enstone, England. We paid the team a visit to look over the shoulder of Adrian Talbot, Head of Non-Destructive Testing at Alpine F1 Team.

Alpine F1 Team operates on two sites: Viry-Châtillon in France and Enstone in England

F1 engines are developed and designed in France

Design, manufacturing, and assembly of the single seaters happen in England

The analysis and visualization happens in VGSTUDIO MAX

In VGSTUDIO MAX, Adrian checks if the small holes inside the pitot tube are not blocked and have good surface finish, and that the general integrity of those tubes are complete
