F1 expertise with ANAC
ANAC expertise in oil analysis: vital in Formula 1 racing!
ANAC is a partner of the TOTAL F1 technical team which gives technical support to the teams making use of the Renault F1 Hybrid power unit.
ANAC analysis of the lubricant in service provide crucial information (oil contamination…) which can make the difference between victory or retirement from the race. The knowledge of the mechanical condition of the engine before the start of a race or practice session is of capital importance. if the engine fails, a possible victory and championship chances will be lost. And as the number of engines which can be used during one season is limited, an engine should be kept in use as long as possible.
In order to make these vital decisions, the ANAC engineers analyze oil samples of the F1 engine in on site laboratories in the pits during the Grand Prix weekends.
