Anders replaced the dream of Formula 1 with FRECON
Anders Qvist’s dream of Formula 1 was formed at a young age and further developed with several seasons as an intern at Jenzer Motorsport in Switzerland and a Master of Science with specialty in Race Car Aerodynamics. All of which is now valuable knowledge in his work at FRECON.
Anders was close to seeing his dream come true of a place in the Formula 1 engineering team. He was among the last 12 out of more than 2,000 applicants for a seat in the Mercedes team and was also in dialogue with Kevin Magnussen’s Haas team.
But after several years of hard work and lobbying in the world of motorsports, Anders did not make the final cut. He therefore chose to return to Denmark with the desire to use his accumulated experience and education as a consultant at a skilled engineering house.
Motivated by a diverse work life
Anders’ skills in mechanical engineering combined with CFD (fluid mechanics) are extremely valuable when solving tasks for FRECON’s customers.
Unique optimization skills
How do you optimize a car in Formula 3, Super GT or Formula 1 so that it can drive as fast as possible while still complying with all the requirements and guidelines that exist in motorsports? Anders has a lot of experience in this field.
“It’s incredibly important to understand the car, what it does, how it works and why. This way of working is valuable here at FRECON and in our development projects too,” says Anders. “However, with the significant difference that in motorsports you often just do and try something out because you have a feeling that it could be right. You respond quickly.
Here at FRECON, we naturally have a slightly different approach to things. The projects are considerably longer and do not require solutions here and now. It is more about doing a thorough piece of preparation, which should also be innovative. Quality is crucial.”
