Formula 1's Project Pitlane will support the manufacture of medical devices to help treat Covid-19 patients

The Prime Minister has reported on progress today (March 27) about rapidly scaling up ventilator production for patients with coronavirus. This follows a government call for industry support.

Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), is working closely with Formula 1 and a collective of UK-based teams, engine manufacturers and their respective technology arms as part of Project Pitlane to co-ordinate its work. Read the Formula 1 group statement.

The work is part of a national effort to develop, manufacture and deploy medical respiratory devices. Innovate UK has convened a team of expert consultants and is actively working with a wide range of companies from the medical device industry, the automotive and aerospace sectors to continue to support this vital programme.
