Sahara Force India

Sahara Force India Formula One Team (www.forceindiaf1.com) is a competitor in the FIA Formula One World Championship. Univa is a proud sponsor and technical partner with the organization.

The Sahara Force India team was born in 2007 after Dr Vijay Mallya, Chairman of India's iconic UB Group and Kingfisher Airlines, joined forces with the Mol family, the co-owners of what was then the Spyker team. High-caliber appointments for the team's 2014 lineup reflect the ever-increasing confidence in the team's performance over the years with Nico Hulkenberg returning to partner new recruit Sergio Perez. The team is regarded to be one of the most interesting driver pairings in Formula One.

Sahara Force India utilizes Univa Grid Engine to support the tight timelines of their engineering design simulations and continual efforts to improve racing performance. Simulations for structural behavior analysis and the modeling of airflow are critical to Sahara Force India's engineering team. Univa Grid Engine ensures that correct simulations are running at the same time providing a more efficient use of applications and a quick turnaround of work throughput.

In addition, Sahara Force India is collaborating with Univa on new functionality that utilizes Windows native support and the ability to holistically run Univa Grid Engine and their simulation pre processing software in a Windows environment. This innovation along with the support and training provided by Univa were important factors in the recent adoption of Univa Grid Engine by Sahara Force India.

"It's fantastic to begin a technical partnership with Univa and benefit from their knowledge of data management software. Almost every area of the team relies on simulation tools to help develop the car and it is here that our relationship with Univa will be of great value. We welcome them to the team and look forward to shared success going forward."

- Otmar Szafnauer, Chief Operating Officer of Sahara Force India

"Formula One epitomizes leading-edge design and awe-inspiring innovations where mankind leverages high-performance technologies to excel and achieve what was once considered impossible. Univa is proud to become an official technical partner and we look forward to celebrating a successful racing season."

- Gary Tyreman, President and CEO of Univa Corporation
