THE OTHER  Formula One  teams also employ Telecommunications suppliers. Red Bull works with  AT&T, for example, and the Williams team uses BT.

" Vastly increased network speed can totally alter the way we work." said Pat Symonds, technical director of the Williams team." 

This includes for example, the ability to interrogate remotely our CAD system back at the base-

Build new assemblies and then export the required information for use on the racetrack in a matter of minutes."

Lowe also emphasized the greater importance today of a robust network for a team that has come to rely on working with an extended staff spread out in different places around the world.

" I have had experience of other providers, where they might be great in Germany, but when you go to Brazil it doesn't function as well because they got the support network," he said.

But with Tata, he added, "I am not aware of any location where we go to where we have had any issues and where we say ,  "Ah this isn't a great race for the data."

"From our point of view, "Lowe said, "it is just seamless and you have full operation at every event, and I'm never aware of actually losing the data link."

One of Tata's main strength is its  data-center expertise,  with  44  centers around the world.

A Formula One car has hundreds of sensors that send data to a team of technicians who analyse every part of the vehicle for wear and tear as well as for engine, chassis and  gearbox tweaks.

The team sends suggestions and instructions back to the driver so that he can make changes in car settings. Meanwhile a team of strategists at the factory back home also analyzes the race via the data, helping make strategic race decisions such as when best to make a pit stop.

"In telecommunications and enterprise telecommunication services, at one level is your fiber connectivity   -that is how your data flows across the world, and your data could be voice, or it just could be data analytics," said Mehul Kapadia, managing director of Formula One Business at Tata Communications.

"Sitting above that is where the  Data Centers  come into play. Because in the end, you need all of those data to actually be stored somewhere . You need to compute on it, you need to process it. So that's  where data centers come into play."

"For the telecommunications providers, the difficult environment of Formula One race is a great test of their expertise. Tata chooses to work in the elite racing series because,  Kapadia said, it is the harshest challenge the company has, a showcase in which to display and develop expertise. 

"Our Logo is not their on the car, you can't see our logo in terms of circuit branding," he said. " For us this is a capability showcase. It is about truly being able to deliver services. And to be able to talk to customers and say:

"If we can do this for  Formula One, we can do it anywhere.' We want to learn, as well. It is a great place to learn some techniques"

Ultimately, though, Lowe said, behind it all, the driver is still the final link. What the driver does has not changed in the years since the data became an integral part of racing, he said.  

"You will need that out-and-out skill that Lewin Hamilton has, and that will never change," Lewis said, referring to the Mercedes driver, who is the reigning world champion and current leader.

"But your augment  it with an understanding of how to work the systems, how to gain a benefit from their analysis."
