First up, I normally drive the car for pitstop practice. This also allows me to monitor the radio systems are working correctly which I oversee.
We will then have a meeting with the engineers and drivers to discuss the day format, weather, car-to-car setups, etc.
After that we will do a warmup procedure where the no 1 mechanic will start the car, run through the gears, etc. This is a perfect time for me to check calibrations, sensors, and car systems.
During a session I will monitor the live data we receive from the cars (telemetry) and look for any reliability issues, temperatures, pressures, damper traces, etc. I am also the guy who calculates how much fuel we need in the cars to finish the race with ½ a kilogram in the tank.
After the session I will download the data and cameras, then upload to our network so all our engineers and drivers can look at it.
We will then have a debrief of with the drivers and engineers to find out what setup changes worked and what didn’t work, I will analyse the data (the squiggly lines) to find any abnormalities or issues.
Also, I do all the drivers’ dash configurations and I look at things like what RPM the drivers are changing gears at to see if we can maximise that more by changing their shift lights.
Back at the workshop I am normally preparing for the next event, re-programming radios, implementing new systems into the car, making dash configurations which are track dependent.
When I am lucky to have some spare time (not often), I also do some designing such as the prat perch where the three musketeers stand (Cauchi, Dutto, and Shippy).
