Infiniti Engineering Academy Offers Students a Shot at Formula 1

The path to Formula 1 normally requires years of paying dues in your respective field, but Infiniti offers a fast track to the top-tier racing series for qualified engineering students. For the fourth straight year, the Infiniti Engineering Academy will select one U.S. engineering student to spend a year working with an F1 team.

The program selects one candidate from each of the participating regions, which include the U.S., Asia and Oceania, Canada, China, Europe, Mexico, and the Middle East, and places them with the Renault Sport Formula One Team for 12 months. The program has produced a number of successful engineers that are currently working in F1 or one of its open-wheel feeder series. Applicants must complete an online engineering puzzle test in order to be considered. The 10 best applicants will then be invited to a final event, where they will compete for the lone U.S. spot in the program.

"The Infiniti Engineering Academy offers an unparalleled opportunity for young, fresh-thinking engineers to experience the best and latest technologies in automotive and motorsport engineering," said Renault Sport Formula One Team managing director Cyril Abiteboul, in a release. "The Academy Engineers that we have working with us at Enstone are a big asset to us as we continue to strengthen our technical resource, so we are looking forward to welcoming the 2017 class."

The seven winners from the participating regions will move to the U.K., where Infiniti will provide travel, accommodations, a company car, and a salary while participating in the program. Most importantly, the students will have the chance to prove themselves worthy of a career in Formula 1. Think you have what it takes? Apply at academy.infiniti.com.
