News CD-adapco would like to offer our warmest congratulations to our friends and partners in the Renault F1 Team. Justifying their position as pre-race favorites, Renault drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Fernando Alonso completely dominated the opening race of the 2005 F1 season. Starting from Pole Position, Fisichella led the Australian GP from start to finish in a faultless demonstration of precision race driving. He was joined on the podium by team-mate Fernando Alonso who narrowly missed second place in what many observers judged "the drive of the day".

As an Official Supplier of CFD and CAE technology to the Renault F1 Team, CD-adapco products continue to play a critical role in the ever improving performances of the team. The Renault F1 Team's Technical Director Bob Bell commented: "CFD technology plays a fundamental role in the design and development of a modern F1 car. The ability to simulate the behavior and performance of our designs quickly and accurately has a direct influence on our on-track performance. We are pleased to continue our relationship with CD-adapco, an acknowledged leader in this field."

CFD plays a key role in modern Formula 1, in the modeling of aerodynamic components and their performance, but also in engine development through advanced in-cylinder simulation. The Renault F1 Team's design engineers use CD-adapco's CFD code STAR-CD and its associated expert system tool es-aero as an integral part of their aerodynamic development, while in the engine field, CD-adapco's tool es-ice is used for designing the combustion system, accelerating the design process by eliminating costly prototyping and testing phases.

Like all of the technology associated with the Renault F1 team, CD-adapco's products continue to evolve at great speed in order to stay in front of the competition. The latest release of the world's leading engine simulation CFD code, STAR-CD v3.24, is packed full of new features aimed directly at the engine modeling community.

"We are very proud of our association with the Renault F1 Team and congratulate them on an outstanding start to the 2005 season", said Dennis Nagy, Vice President of Marketing for CD-adapco, "STAR-CD helped influence which driver ends up standing atop the winner's podium. This result further confirms our position as technology leaders in the field of automotive aerodynamics and engine simulation"
