Studying tips to get into F1

Post by A2797 » Mon Jun 04, 2018 8:06 pm

Hi, there - (I'm new so go easy on me.)

I'm currently pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering (final year). I've always had an interest in F1, and like many of such people who go into engineering - my ultimate aim is to land a job in the motorsport industry. (Not necessarily F1, because I'm fully aware of how competitive it is, and how many engineers grind their careers in lower categories before moving up - and I'm totally fine with it.)

I'm from India, and I plan to do my masters in aerospace engineering with a specialization in probably what is going to be lightweight structures and composites. I plan to do this in Europe which is going to be closer to the industry than America. Can anyone guide me as to what should I be doing/ any tips/ advice for getting in at the earliest?

or even

I suggest you look at sites like the above. You'll probably find a Masters at Cranfield, or one of the polytechnics claims to get you into a racing team faster.
