The Monaco-based Venturi Formula E Team has announced Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as the team’s official technology partner.

For the FIA ABB Formula E seasons five to seven, Venturi will benefit from HPE’s expertise, technologies, infrastructure and innovation, supporting critical team performance functions on and off the track. Once implemented, the technology should aid efficient team workflow and assist with race execution.

“At HPE, we believe the future belongs to the fast, and we’re focused on accelerating what’s next for enterprises, including in the world of auto racing,” said Antonio Neri, president and CEO of HPE. “We are delighted to announce a new partnership with Venturi Formula E and look forward to bringing the power of the world’s best technology and services to every facet of their factory and trackside operations to transform the team’s operational efficiency and further their engineering excellence.”

HPE has a wealth of experience with the technical demands in motorsports including Formula One, Formula E, Indycar and Nascar, and success in implementing edge to cloud services.

“I’m delighted to welcome Hewlett Packard Enterprise on board,” said Gildo Pastor, president of Venturi Formula E. “There is no doubt that this partnership will allow Venturi Formula E to grow. Due to their great expertise, I’m convinced that HPE will fast-track the development of the team and enhance the corporate structure. Given that Formula E is a very dynamic and fast-paced environment, I know that HPE will enjoy this unique and hopefully rewarding journey we are embarking on together."

Through the partnership, HPE is dedicating a number of technical specialists and developing a technological innovation strategy for the team, incorporating platforms and artificial intelligence.

“Races are won and lost on strategy which is why we are not only building the best possible team but we want the best possible technology and engineering partners as part of our journey,” said Susie Wolff, team principal at Venturi Formula E. “I’ve personally seen the HPE motorsport partnerships in action, I know the real tangible technical benefits they can bring to a team and I am delighted that we have them on board as our official technology partner. I also think that the scale of their commitment doesn’t just reinforce their belief in our team but also their appreciation for Formula E as a sport. HPE has also had the foresight to recognise that Formula E is a highly competitive environment for sustainable automotive and technological innovation and they want to be part of that momentum.”

From the opening round of the FIA ABB Formula E season five in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia on 15 December 2018 onwards, the HPE branding and corporate identity will be displayed on the front wing guards, tub tops and all-new roll hoops of Felipe Massa and Edoardo Mortara’s cars, the Venturi Formula E team wear and across a number of other partner-designated channels.

“Data are the new currency, and how companies use data to derive insights that inform meaningful actions is key to outpacing the competition,” said Jim Jackson, CMO at HPE. “Our partnership with Venturi Formula E is about putting the most advanced technology to work in a way that will allow the organisation to understand data, fuel insights and drive innovation faster and better than ever before.”
