Lately it has been quieter than you are used to from us. However, this does not mean that we are not busy behind the scenes with the team, the online competition and other activities!
In a time without Formula 1 races, people are constantly looking for other ways to create race content. The well-known Formula 1 café therefore approached us to include an item. We are proud to announce that former Formula 1 driver Robert Doornbos will drive a time attack in the DUT19 against Tom Coronel.
The 'race' will take place on our own test track and will be commented by Rob Kamphues. Rob will also interview us where we can tell more about our team and the project. Then the item (as it stands) will air on Friday June 12, 10:30 PM on Ziggo Sport.
All this will of course take place at an appropriate distance. We will follow all RIVM rules and disinfect the car in between. In addition, we will (unfortunately) only be present with the necessary team members.

Due to the situation regarding the Coronavirus, the Formula Student Team Delft follows the official guidelines of the Dutch government and health authorities. The well-being of our team is of the utmost importance to us. This means that we will close our office until April 6. After this period, we will review the situation and see if other precautions need to be taken. We will continue to answer our phones and emails in the coming period.
Our team can be proud of our achievements to date. We have already learned a lot by designing, testing and building our cars. It is difficult to step back, but we feel our responsibility to society. The largest Formula Student competition has now been canceled. Chances are that others will follow which means we won't be attending any games in the summer. This decision naturally raises several questions: are we going to continue building two cars? Can we attend another match if the weather is safe? But it also raises another question; as a large team of 110 engineers, can we make a different contribution to society? Are there any projects where we can help fight the Coronavirus? We don't have all the answers yet and need some time to clarify all aspects. We will communicate more details as soon as possible.

The rollout of the DUT19 was on the Markt in Delft on Friday 14 June. Tbp has been a sponsor of the Formula Student Team Delft for several years. We assist the students by analyzing their electronics design and giving feedback. The production and delivery of the printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA's) are also part of the sponsorship.
