Innovation Partnership with Oracle Red Bull Racing
Winning a Formula 1 race can come down to just a few thousandths of a second. Hexagon products help Oracle Red Bull Racing find those thousandths by delivering extra microns of precision in production.  The accuracy and quality provided by Hexagon products and services played an important role in helping Red Bull Racing win the 2022 F1 World Contructors' Championship, as well as delivering the 2021 and 2022 F1 World Drivers’ Championships for driver Max Verstappen.

The team has a 5-month window in which to develop a new car for the next season, and during that season there can be up to 30,000 design changes. This leaves no room for inaccuracies, and the importance of getting it right first time is paramount. From the factory floor to trackside on race weekend, Hexagon’s cutting-edge products, such as 3D scanners, laser trackers, portable measuring arms and CMMs, are the difference makers that keep Red Bull Racing ahead of the pack.

It’s not just products that make a partnership. At Hexagon, we provide a flexible and professional service. Our engineers are always on hand to provide Red Bull Racing with the support they need, working as a fully integrated part of the Red Bull Racing team.

This partnership has been ongoing for over a decade, and through continued research and development, both Red Bull Racing’s cars and our metrology products will stay in pole position.
“So for us the AS1 opens up a huge amount more opportunities to quickly capture data on a larger volume with the same integrity and accuracy as we can do with the arms on the smaller parts.”
