As each team aims to engineer the safest and fastest car for each track, compounded by such narrow margins for achieving a win, simulation plays a major role for Red Bull Racing Honda, and it is crucial that aerodynamic simulations are robust and predictively accurate.

To meet these challenges, Red Bull Racing Honda employs Ansys’ world-class simulation solutions for aerodynamics and the chassis cooling circuit by using Ansys CFD, materials data management and optimization with Ansys Granta MI, and virtual impact testing with Ansys LS-DYNA.

“We continue to benchmark to ensure we are using the best-in-class tools and are confident working with Ansys ensures we stay ahead of the game,” said Matt Cadieux, CIO at Red Bull Racing Honda. “By integrating Ansys’ technology into our design processes, our team iterates designs much faster, giving us the edge against our competition on the track.”

The team most recently held the top driver title during four consecutive championship wins from 2010 to 2013.

“We provide the most predictively accurate and robust simulation solutions for our partners and customers so they can excel in their developments and endeavors,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “For Red Bull Racing Honda to achieve this is a victory for us as well. We are proud to partner with the team and celebrate this win with them.”

Ansys looks forward to continuing to drive efficiency and predictive accuracy in Red Bull Racing Honda’s design cycle as the Team charges on into 2022, paving the way to future track successes.
