    Racing at the Speed of Data: What It Takes to Win in the World of Formula One

    Racing at the Speed of Data: What It Takes to Win in the World of Formula One

    By Cory Minton, Field CTO
    What does it take to build and race cars that go more than 200 miles an hour? 
    In the high-octane world of racing, it's not just the skill of the driver and the top-notch racecar that matter. Data emerges as a secret weapon, shaping everything from the production line to the pulse-pounding moments on the track. Recently, I had the exhilarating opportunity to chat with Zak Brown, the mastermind behind McLaren Racing.
    According to Zak, data isn't just important; it's the lifeblood of the business. It's not enough to have a flood of information; you need to harness it, dissect it, and use it to make split-second decisions. "Racing has transformed from relying on gut instinct to being driven by hard data," Zak reveals. "And if you ignore what the data tells you, you're bound to miss the mark."
    During our conversation, Zak shares  what it's like collaborating with racing phenoms like Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri, as well as  the thrilling story behind McLaren's record-breaking pit stop, clocking in at an astonishing 1.80 seconds. And just when I thought the adrenaline couldn't get any higher, Zak drops the bombshell about Brad Pitt portraying him in the upcoming Formula One blockbuster.

    Driving a Culture of Agility and Curiosity: Strategic Approaches From McLaren F1’s COO

    Driving a Culture of Agility and Curiosity: Strategic Approaches From McLaren F1’s COO

    How to encourage innovation and drive resilience across your operations.  
    Shaun Cooney, Field CTO, Splunk chats with Piers Thynne, Chief Operating Officer at McLaren F1
    Conversations about technology and its implementation matter. However, you won’t be able to harness its full potential without also investing in the efficiency, curiosity, and culture of your team. 
    I had the pleasure of speaking with Piers Thynne, COO of McLaren F1, about some of the strategies its teams employ to stay as agile as the sports cars they create. We discussed all aspects of operations at McLaren, including the more than 17,000 parts that go into each car, the data that supports manufacturing, the data used for planning to ensure on-time delivery, and the potential risk to health working in such a high-pressure environment.
    Some of the insights shared include rejecting blame culture and embracing failures as learning opportunities so your team has the freedom they need to be curious and innovate. As a leader, it is critical for your teams to keep their eye on the prize and remember it’s all about delivering a high-performing product and that every day is a day to learn. This one isn’t to be missed!
