A calculated decision
Satyajeet's role is to analyze hundreds of gigabytes of data from the drivers' simulator runs ahead of each race, examining speed, regeneration energy, power, and more. The insights feed into drivers Sam Bird and Robin Frijns' race strategies. Satyajeet uses this data to showcase the unique styles of each driver and helps them learn from each other's performances for the crucial 45 minutes (plus one lap) of a race.
Satyajeet was attracted to the field of statistics while he was at college. "Although it's an extended part of math, I was impressed by how little infrastructure is required to implement analytics and the massive return on investment you could get from it," he says.
He joined Genpact in 2018, having found the company's focus on people, global presence, and list of clients particularly alluring. He was excited by the possibilities that joining the company promised. Having worked in industries as diverse as retail, banking and finance, and telecommunications, he has added the sports industry to the list.
Satyajeet says that it's a high like no other to have drivers like Sam Bird and Robin Frijns look at his analysis and make it part of their driving strategy, and then celebrate wins with them. "To be able to use my data skills to get Sam and Robin onto the podium is incredibly exciting."
