Allmandinger has recently begun his work with the Formula One team, and said that so far the experience has helped him grow as a person and an engineer. “I’ve learned quite a lot technically as well as personally. Moving to the UK and working within a different environment has been a great experience. I’ve had the chance to travel and work throughout Europe as well. This is great as an engineer in a global environment, as it’s becoming more and more common to be working with people from around the world. On the technical side, I’ve had the chance to work with dozens of different systems and technologies, which has really advanced my understanding of many aspects of the automotive industry.”
