  • The team also won the Drivers’ Formula One World Championship earlier in the season, marking a double win for the first time since 2013 with its new-generation cars
  • Oracle Red Bull Racing leverages Ansys’ simulation solutions for computational fluid dynamics (CFD), materials data management, and virtual impact testing

PITTSBURGH, PA, October 24, 2022 – Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) is proud to congratulate Oracle Red Bull Racing for winning the Formula One World Constructors’ Championship for the 2022 season on Sunday, October 23. The team also took home the Drivers’ Championship earlier in the season when Max Verstappen triumphed as the season’s top driver for the second consecutive year on October 9. As an Ansys Innovation Partner since 2008, the team looks to Ansys’ best-in-class simulation solutions to dominate on the track.

This year, new regulation changes for the 2022 racing season had a substantive impact on vehicle aerodynamics, requiring Oracle Red Bull Racing to rethink its designs. Ansys simulation software helped Oracle Red Bull Racing to better understand airflow around those changes, then use the data to make holistic design improvements and improve aero performance.

Specifically, Oracle Red Bull Racing employs Ansys’ world-class simulation solutions for aerodynamics and the engine cooling intakes by using Ansys® CFD™, materials data management and optimization with Ansys® Granta MI™, and virtual impact testing and impact with Ansys® LS-DYNA® to secure the win.
