The winner of the F1 in Schools has been announced, with Recoil Racing from Germany triumphing in the competition.
The team consists of six 16-18-year-old students from Marie-Therese-Gymnasium in Erlangen, Germany, who prevailed in the 18th World Final of F1 in Schools.
Over 350 students, a new record, competed at the World Finals which was held at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore, ahead of this weekend's race.
The World Champions will receive a full bursary scholarship to UCL Mechanical Engineering and an exclusive Singapore Grand Prix experience, which includes a trophy presentation atop the podium at the Marina Bay Circuit.
The panel of judges was chaired by former F1 Technical Director Gary Anderson, who stated: “The judges and I were incredibly impressed by all the entries in this year’s F1 in Schools World Finals, but the members of Recoil Racing are worthy World Champions.
“Speed is not everything in this competition: project management, marketing, teamwork, innovation and communication all matter. Congratulations to Recoil Racing.”
Propulsion from Australia secured second place, with Nightingale from England completing the podium.
Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, added: “On behalf of everyone at Formula 1, I want to congratulate all the winners and participating teams at this year’s World Finals.
“F1 in Schools is a fantastic initiative, igniting a passion for STEM subjects in the next generation and every year I am amazed at the standard of competition. I have no doubt I will see many of the competitors working in the F1 paddock in the near future.”
