We understand the physical demands that F1 drivers face and are proud to provide them with the equipment to enable them to train to meet the physical demands of their job

Matrix Fitness, the commercial brand of Johnson Health Tech, has announced the renewal of its long term partnership with the Renault F1 Team.

The partnership will involve continued support of the team’s Human Performance Centre (HPC); a purpose-built training and sports science facility wherein Matrix have supplied fitness equipment including cardiovascular equipment from their leading 7xi Series and products from Matrix’ Magnum and Ultra strength ranges.

Latest instalments include the new Matrix S-Drive and S-Force Performance Trainers, the Matrix CXP Indoor Cycles and Connected Solutions, which include an in-built workout-tracking network and PT portal.

Having signed the original official supplier agreement with the Enstone-based team in 2006, this is the longest standing partnership that Matrix holds within its portfolio.

Daryl Coombes, HPC manager at Renault F1 Team, commented: “Health and fitness is such a vital aspect of our sport, and is relevant for all the team personnel, not just the drivers.

“Our HPC is arguably one of the best facilities of its kind in F1, and Matrix has certainly contributed to our success over the last 12 years.

“We have high ambitions in all our racing programmes and the improved fitness levels our teams will achieve, thanks to the Matrix equipment available in the HPC, will play a vital role in this continued progression.”

F1 is a team sport, and as well as the drivers, Matrix has been able to support the whole team at Renault F1 Team’s Technical Centre and in particular the Race Team.

The Pit Crew has to be incredibly fit; moving at a rapid pace, they’re expected to perform pit-stops in little more than two seconds, lifting tyres and equipment under pressure and in a high-temperature environment.

The whole team works as an engine and all elements have a vital input, therefore everyone must be performing at their optimum.

Commenting on the renewal of the contract, Matt Pengelly, MD at Johnson Health Tech UK, said: “This has been an extremely successful, collaborative partnership for us.

“We understand the physical demands that F1 drivers face and are proud to provide them with the equipment to enable them to train to meet the physical demands of their job.”

Matrix will also continue to provide equipment to the Renault Sport Academy, Renault’s own development programme aiming at the nurturing of young drivers who are expected to contend with the physical demands of top-level motor racing, including average heart rates of over 180bpm for a race distance of 90 minutes or more, the extreme heat of a cockpit and sustained G Forces.
