Work In F1

Get a career in F1 with this step by step guide “How To Get A Job In Formula 1”.

If you would like a career in F1 whether you have a degree or not, there is a place for you in F1.

This is an educational website and we are committed to providing you with the answers to the following questions:

  1. How does someone become a Formula 1 driver?
  2. How do you become a Formula 1 engineer, and what qualifications do you need?
  3. Are there any jobs that do not require a degree?
  4. Can you get internships or apprenticeships in Formula 1?
  5. What kind of jobs exist in a Formula 1 team, and what does everybody do?

We are all familiar with the expression “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”, well in F1 both apply. It is also a fact that you will never see F1 pit crew jobs advertised, there is also the reality that a finite number of F1 team jobs exist but the opportunities to be working in the pit lane or at a Grand Prix are far greater than most people recognise.

At Jobs In F1 we provide you with all the information you need to have a career in Formula 1, whether you want to be an F1 Driver, a Pit Crew Member, an Engineer or work in any of the peripheral jobs that follow the circus around the world or back at headquarters.

We will also open the door on the global industry and show you the career options that exist for those that support everything that goes on around the team.

How To Become A F1 Engineer

Welcome to the world of F1 and Jobs in F1.
The step by step guide to working in Formula 1.

Job In Formula 1

When I started my career I was given little to no guidance on how to build a career in motorsport, let alone know how to get a job in formula 1.

I had to find my way around the hard way, researched where to study and which courses that I needed to enrol on, I then worked really hard to get the experience I needed whilst studying, and even harder to build my own contacts, learnt how to write a really good CV, and figured out how to impress at an interview and eventually after 15 years of effort got to work at McLaren.

I really enjoy my career, and there are many people who would like to be part of F1, but like me had no idea how to get a job in F1. The good news is that this book and website will save you a lot of time and effort.

People always ask the question: “how does someone become a formula 1 driver?”
If your dream is to become a driver we explain how and where to start your racing career, which organisations to join, where to get your equipment and the budget you need, where to get professional training, how to get sponsorship and management, and we explain the formula’s that you need to compete in that lead to F1, and how to secure your F1 seat on the grid.

The second question asked is:
“how do you become a F1 engineer and what qualifications do you need?”
If you are going to choose a professional career we explain the jobs that exist with a Formula 1 company and provide you with details of the roles performed and the tools used by teams to help design and build the cars.

If you would like to become a F1 engineer we explain how to build a career in formula one, the qualifications required to perform many of the team roles, we give you clear guidance on what to study and where to study with universities preferred by the F1 teams. But academic achievement
alone is not always enough, we give you the inside tips on actions you can take that will make you stand out from all other candidates.

It is really important for pupils that are not based in the UK to choose the right academic courses and we explain the courses required to give you recognised grades for UK based universities and companies. By taking the courses and achieving the level of results recommended you will be in the driving seat for your university education and a career in F1.

Just as important as a qualification we will teach you how to develop your network connections in the motorsport industry and how to use those to create your opportunities by explaining how recruitment works in F1.

The third question asked is: “Are there any jobs that do not require a degree?”
Even if you do not have a degree, F1 needs you. There are several jobs within the teams and the supporting industry that can help to fulfil your ambition of being a part of Formula 1.


If these are questions that you have asked yourself, or you are planning your career it is time to take action and get the answers that you need by ordering your copy of “How To Get A Job In Formula 1” for £14.99 plus £1.99 post and packaging.

Writing A CV For Formula 1

When you write a CV you need to be conscious that it is not just a case of writing down your professional credentials but also that you need to format your CV for both human and electronic assessment.

In the modern recruitment world agencies and Formula 1 teams use search engines and electronic “bots” to read a page on the internet and assess the relevance of the CV to the exact language and words used by the person that created the search.

Both will look to assess your objective, and an example of this is to state for example “Seeking a role as an aerodynamic senior engineer”.

A recruiter that is in possession of your CV whether in paper or electronic copy will read the whole sentence to assess the relevance, but will also make a conscious interpretation if your CV stated “an experienced aerodynamics engineer” as to its relevance to an aerodynamic senior engineer role they wish to fill.

A bot will make an assessment of each word used in the search, the sequence the exact spelling and the exact wording used in the writing of your CV. So the recruiter would have to write the exact wording used on your CV for you to appear as relevant to the bots search program when it is trawling the internet.

The challenge you face is that a recruiter will use the internet to find a CV in the first instance unless anyone else working at the company is able to put a CV on the table in front of them, or if they already have a CV registered with the company.

So we are talking about search engine optimisation (SEO) of your CV if you are going to stand any chance of being found. It is not possible to write a professional looking CV with all permutations of your skill descriptions, so we need to consider “Keywords” to use. But keyword listing is not enough, search engines are getting smarter and context and relevance algorithms are being developed.

Each section of your CV must meet the search criteria, from seeking a role, to education and experience and potentially personal interest. So formatting a CV and using the correct layout expected is essential. Equally as important is the fact that a CV will be assessed in 7-15 seconds by any reader. If the layout and content do not jump off the page you are in the bin under the table.

Recruiters also have some golden rules when it comes to creating a CV. While you may use a vocabulary in your industry how do you know the relevance of your keyword vocabulary to a Formula 1 recruiter? Most HR personnel will not have an engineering background, they stem from HR training and administration tasks, this by no means a criticism they are very good at their job, but an engineer or designer thinks differently to a person in an administration role.

Jobs in F1 has a keyword relevance tool that works on all search engines to determine the statistically optimised phrases and keywords used by recruiters. The keyword you should be looking for is Wow! We can give you a formula for Formula 1 jobs.

We also have an optimised CV layout that shows you exactly what a recruiter expects to see in an easy to read format.

Career In F1

When you are thinking about an engineering career in Formula 1 you need to consider all of the types of jobs that exist, your skills, and your qualifications whether they are academic or vocational.

A good CV is essential and you need to understand how a recruiter will assess your CV and determine if you have the right credentials and pedigree to be a part of a team at the pinnacle of its sport. Formatting your CV is an essential skill for any job hunter whether recently educated or an experienced engineer.

It is also important to know how to pitch yourself in terms of the type of job and your salary expectation.

If any of these are not inline with expectation then your chances of getting a job in formula 1 are not good.

For help and advice visit www.jobsinf1.com where you will find career guide that explains the career choices, options, grades and qualifications required from GCSE to PhD.

If you do not have an engineering degree you can still get a job in Formula 1 if you can demonstrate commitment and intelligence to your Motorsport.
