Fred Vasseur

Frederic Vasseur even founded Spark Racing Technology (SRT), who’s hybrid and electric powertrains are used by Formula E. Spark Racing Technology was even contracted to construct 40 single-seaters.

To date, Vasseur continues as the team principal of the Alfa Romeo team. He is said to be quite an easy-going individual and gets along well with his team. Although he studied aeronautical engineering, he noted that F1 cars were often compared with fighter aircraft.

Speaking to GlobeAir, he acknowledged the similarities between the two fields and technologies. Vasseur stressed the importance of the support personnel for all aspects of the aircraft or racing car, the logistics behind that, the mechanical aspects, the technology, and the aerodynamics, which are the top priority for an aircraft as well as in Formula 1. Clearly the two fields have a great deal in common.
