celerity.team consists of four dedicated and
highly motivated pupils from the
Märkisches Gymnasium Iserlohn who came
together for the work on the project.

Formula 1 in schools

is a multi-disciplinary and international
technology challenge, in which teams of
students design, manufacture and then race
miniature compressed air powered F1 cars.

We aim to use the fascination with the "big" Formula 1 and the world-wide presence to create an exciting and thrilling learning experience for young people to improve their understanding and insight in product development, technology, and science and show them careers in technical jobs.

In regional championships and a German Championship teams are competing with gas-cartridge driven race cars on a 20 m race track. The winning team represents Germany in the World Championships of "F1 in Schools" that take place every year prior to a Formula 1 Grand Prix.

In addition to the design of the car and the driving time, the evaluation also includes a presentation, a portfolio and a pit display.

Code of conduct
Corporate Identity
„Corporate Design makes the good better.”
The corporate identity should stand out from the other teams. Therefore, both a striking color scheme and a modern appearance have been implemented. It was important that, in addition to the recognition value, the practical benefits were guaranteed.

The Project
„Healthy competition doesn't live from the fight but from creative diversity.”
Formula 1 is a multi-disciplinary and international technology challenge, in which students design, manufacture and then race miniature compressed air powered F1 cars. In addition to the design of the car and the driving time, the evaluation also includes a presentation, a portfolio and a pit display.

„From Newcomer to the World Championship in nine month.”
Everything started with a session at SIHK in Hagen (Germany) that combined both an introduction as well as a first training. We meet there at the first time and it was not clear to us that this was the beginning of our common road to Malaysia. As from the beginning we knew that this is the first and the last time we are able to participate at the project. Therefore we had the participation in the German Championship as a common target in mind.

Visiting the big ones
Not the winner but more experiences than we ever thought.
Thank you to Jakob Andreasen (Chief Operations and Performance Engineer) from Williams Martini Racing for the invitation. It was very impressive to see the Sepang Circuit and the garage of Team Williams up close.
The great finish
Four days of tension are now behind us. Assembly of the team box, presentations, interviews and of course the races were very challenging. In a very strong, international field of participants we were able to reach the 15th place.
War of nerves
We were able to win the first race in the knock-out competition with confidence. In the second round we met the German-Australian collaboration team Aurora partly "old friends" from previous competitions in Germany. It wasn't until the third round that Aurora won the race - with a lead of 19/100 seconds.
Secound racing session finished
Physics couldn't be fooled. Therefore, unfortunately, we were unable to improve our racing time today. But we were very pleased about Mr.Schlüter's visit to Malaysia and that we were able to show him our work.
First racing session finished
Today we had our first race against a team from the Emirates. This went well for us even if the race times did not meet our expectations from the preperation runs. We hope that we will be able to repeat the top times of the preperation runs on the next race day.
We have covered 10,000 kilometres in the last few hours and arrived today in Malaysia at the Sunway Pyramid Hotel.
Tomorrow we'll have to register and we'll get used to the climate and the time difference before the World Cup starts.
A few hours before our departure for the World Cup in Malaysia, we were once again mentioned in the daily press.

„An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
Formula 1 at school gives us the opportunity to actively engage with the topics of technology and teamwork outside school. In order to reach this ambitious target we need your support. We want to develop this knowledge supported by industrial companies.
Science and technology have a high influence on everyday life. Wealth of our society is based considerably on the know-how of our engineers. This knowledge is the only commodity which Germany owns. Only through constant contact of our talented juniors with technology in school and beyond we can preserve our innovation power and guarantee Germany's technical position long term.

The monetary value of the sponsor is determined for the classification. In the case of sponsors who are only financially involved, this sponsored amount is used for the classification. In the case of sponsors who support us in addition to financial resources including services or material values, the value of the service or the asset is used for categorization.

Would you like to become a technical advisor or sponsor of our team?
Feel free to contact us!
