The Federation Internationale de l’Automobile has announced McLaren Applied Technologies as the sole provider of engine pressure and temperature sensors for the FIA Formula 1 World Championship between 2018 and 2020. The components are designed to be a cost-effective solution of the highest quality and reliability.
During the three-year period, all teams will use the sensors to monitor their power unit’s performance, in a move designed to help curtail the excessive costs involved in the sport. The FIA aims for the initiative to complement the Single Engine Control Unit (SECU) that has been used by all teams since 2008, which is also supplied by McLaren Applied Technologies.
“We’re delighted McLaren Applied Technologies has been chosen by the FIA to be the trusted sole provider of engine pressure and temperature sensors for the 2018 to 2020 FIA Formula 1 World Championships,” said Rodi Basso, motorsport director of McLaren Applied Technologies.
“From the ECU technology in every Formula 1 car to the engineers supporting teams at the track, McLaren Applied Technologies continues to be at the heart of motorsport. Our mission is to provide an unrivalled service, ensuring the world’s premier race teams and series can continue to grow and delight fans around the world.”
