IT in F1

A great article briefly describing how Force India uses Information Technology and how their department does their jobs:
Force India's Head of Information Technology Adrian Collinson leads a small team of six people that provides a variety of IT services at the factory and wind tunnel in the UK, as well as support to the race and test teams. Working with Adrian is David Lippiatt and Shona Gilchrist who provide factory support; Robert Hardwidge, who provides exclusive support to the race team; Katie Hanna, who looks after the first line help desk; and Jonathan Ruffley, who provides Computer Aided Design (CAD) support. Between the six of them, they look after more than 250 users within the team, which equates to roughly 500 physical desktops, laptops, and servers.
