Sharpening its edge
These live radio conversations can reveal important insights into the motivations and behavior of each competitor. Because every race is hard to predict, the team needed to maintain its edge over its rivals.
Monitoring competitors allowed the team to adjust its strategy in real time. If engineers and drivers know when another driver is considering taking attack mode, they could act in advance.
For example, in a race in Mexico, one of the drivers started eighth on the grid. He used radio analytics insights to help decide when to take attack mode and overtake, which contributed toward his third-place finish and first Formula E podium.
With technology on hand to accelerate radio analysis, the team gave itself a head start on this vital intelligence-gathering process, especially when facing weekends with multiple races.
The team would not have been able to pull such valuable insights from such high volumes of unstructured data at speed and scale without Genpact's skills with digital technologies and data. With this insight, the team can go out on track knowing it hasn't left a stone unturned during race preparation.
This solution is another component of advanced analytics that will continue to boost driver performance not just with energy management or driver dexterity, but also with superior data-led insights.
Faster access to insight on how competitors make in-race adjustments and adapt to changing conditions enhances the team's pre-race strategy and ability to secure more podium finishes and a coveted season victory.
