Kieran File to work with Williams F1 Team exploring language use in a Formula 1 team during live racing event

In Formula 1, effective communication is fundamental. A study led by Dr Kieran File (supported by an Economic and Social Research Council IAA funding grant) working with Williams Racing Formula 1 team looks to understand how engineers, mechanics, team management and drivers all communicate with one another as they make decisions during the high-pressure situation of qualifying and racing events.

Dr Kieran File explains: “We see this project providing really interesting insights into how humans strategically use language to communicate under pressure.
