The F1® Innovation Prize 2018

F1 Innovation Prize

The Tata Communications F1® Innovation Prize gives motorsport and technology fans the opportunity to win $50,000 and shape the future of the sport.


Talk to the team

Tata Communications, Formula 1® and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport join forces for the fifth consecutive year to promote and reward fans and technology enthusiasts in the sport’s only global crowdsourced innovation competition.

This year’s challenge entitled ‘My F1®’ puts you, the fan, in the driving seat – we’re asking you to imagine what your F1 looks like. We want you to design the ultimate user interface using F1’s diverse data points to create the most immersive, customised viewing experience. In addition to awarding the winner $50,000, this year’s competition includes incubation and prototyping of the winning idea at Formula 1®’s Media & Technology Centre.

This is a bold new initiative for Formula 1® and a world first in global sport. Sign up to stay updated!
