McKinsey Organizations Solutions Expert Andres Mejia is a Formula One Racing Fan

McKinsey & Co. Manager Andres Mejia is a longtime fan of Formula One auto racing. Formula One, often referred to as F1, is the highest rated class of single seat auto racing in the world. F1 is sanctioned by the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). Since its inception in 1950, F1 racing has been the premier form of automobile racing in the world, culminating in an F1 World Championship every year. The name Formula One was given based upon the formula, or rules, set forth for the race. These rules are not centered around the performance or decisions of the drivers, but the standards to which all participant's cars must conform.

A series of various races, known as Grand Prix, take place throughout the year at different venues. Each of the worldly venues consists of either public roadways already in existence, F1 circuits that were built for the sport, or a mixture of both. There are twenty-two drivers in the F1 field, as well as eleven constructors. Currently, and for the last few years, tires are all supplied by Pirelli. While each F1 team must ensure their car meets the F1 standards, there is leeway in the design choices. For example, there are four different makes of engine that are allowed in an F1 race car. These are Renault, Honda, Ferrari, and Mercedes. Andres Mejia loves to watch the fast paced excitement of a Formula One race with his colleagues at McKinsey & Co. He is a big fan of the Scuderia Ferrari team.
