Default Honda to use IBM and Dassault services for their formula-1 car

Japanese automaker Honda has said in a statement that they would be using the services of IBM and Dassault services for their formula-1 car.
The aim is to use the latest technology supplied by these two companies to build its Formula One racing cars more quickly and efficiently.
Mark Wilterding, a global partner at IBM’s product lifecycle management unit spoke on this new development: “Formula One vehicles are completely wired. Performance data from the vehicle is fed directly to the driver and the pits. That information needs to be available instantly to everyone to keep the car performing at the highest level. The engineers could be in Japan or in the UK.”
He added: “Suppose the car is on the race track and has trouble negotiating hairpins. The suspension systems may not be built to the tolerance they need to be. That information can be used in a pits stop at the race. Or engineers can change the car for the next race, or come up with a new design.”
David France, information technology director at the Honda Racing F1 Team had this to say: “Formula One is the pinnacle of the motorsports industry, where the ability to compress the development cycle of the car is critical.”

I think Dassault Services is the same company which makes the AUTOCAD software called CATIA, which is pretty popular these days.
