The 2020 INFINITI Engineering Academy candidates commence the second rotation of the unique automotive-to-motorsport placements with INFINITI and Renault DP World F1® Team, as the current edition of the INFINITI Engineering Academy reaches its mid-point.

The seven INFINITI academy engineers, including Middle East winner Raoul Al Samarani, completed the first six month placement under extraordinary circumstances due to the coronavirus pandemic, and will now switch positions between the INFINITI Technical Center in Cranfield and the Renault DP World F1® Team Technical Center in Enstone.

Throughout the placements, the engineers have remained active during lockdown, working from home on different projects while in touch with their teams and line managers.

Samarani took his first placement at the INFINITI Technical Centre in Cranfield as at test engineer in the Vehicle Testing Department conducting different kinds of tests including rigidity and heat ageing assessments on new project cars in preparation for them entering the market.

Now in his second placement with Renault DP World F1® Team, Samarani supports as a quality and production efficiency engineer where he is investigating pressure taps on the floor of the R.S.20 race car to help achieve higher aerodynamic performance.

“Working during the lockdown has been unprecedented, however, the engineers at both my placements are always making sure that I’m making the most of my opportunity,” said Samarani. “While working remotely, I continue learning and getting all the guidance I need in order to complete the projects assigned to me by the senior engineers. It’s been a very fruitful year so far – I’m thoroughly enjoying my experience at the academy and I am looking forward to all the experiences that the second part of my placement will bring.”

“2020 has been an exceptional year for everyone. We are very proud of our Academy Engineers – not only for staying focused and making the most of this unique opportunity in the most unusual and challenging circumstances, but also for finding ways to support those affected by the virus and devoting their remarkable engineering talent to such a worthy cause’, said Tommaso Volpe, director, Global Motorsports, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.

The INFINITI Engineering Academy is a unique program in its seventh year, and the most successful technical recruitment initiative of its kind. It is the only program to offer a placement in both automotive and F1®. The Academy is unmatched in the range of opportunities and experiences for the seven 2020 winners, selected from INFINITI markets around the world.

Renault DP World F1 Team today announced that Fernando Alonso will partner Esteban Ocon in its driver line-up for the 2021 season. With 314 Grand Prix starts, 32 wins and 97 podiums, Fernando joins Renault DP World F1 Team for the upcoming seasons. Given the strong historic and emotional bond between the team and Fernando Alonso – Renault and Fernando won their two world championship titles together in 2005 and 2006 – this decision is both bold and meaningful for the future.

It is the second major announcement for the team this season after unveiling DP World as its first ever title partner. Both signings are clear indication of Renault’s commitment to competing at the highest level of motorsport and its efforts to win back the title.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, DP World’s group chairman and CEO said, “In March we announced that we would become the team’s first ever title sponsor and global logistics partner, which was a major milestone for both Renault and DP World.

“The partnership has been a vital step towards the exploration of ways to make Renault’s global automotive supply chain more efficient by lowering costs, increasing speed and transparency and mitigating their environmental impact.

“Today’s announcement is another exciting step forward in the partnership.”

Renault and DP World’s partnership is built on a set of shared values. Both are intelligent, reliable brands focused on innovation, being inclusive and using technology and data to solve problems. Fernando is a great driver that compliments those values and brings pure talent and tenacity to the union.

Fernando Alonso said, “Renault is my family, my fondest memories in Formula One with my two World Championship titles, but I’m now looking ahead. It’s a great source of pride and with an immense emotion I’m returning to the team that gave me my chance at the start of my career and which now gives me the opportunity to return to the highest level.

“I have principles and ambitions in line with the team’s project. Their progress this winter gives credibility to the objectives for the 2022 season and I will share all my racing experience with everyone from the engineers to the mechanics and my team-mates. The team wants and has the means to get back on the podium, as do I.”
