Formula 1’s ability to find quick solutions is hastening the race to find a cure for dementia, believes three-time world champion Sir Jackie Stewart.
Former F1 champion, Sir Jackie Stewart set up the Race Against Dementia charity in 2018, two years after his wife, Lady Helen, was diagnosed with the disease. Dementia is a disease which will affect one in three people at some point in their lifetime, and currently affects 50 million people across the globe. Research into the condition is vital to help improve the quality and effectiveness of both its treatment and prevention.
Since the days when Sir Jackie Stewart won his world titles, the speed and effectiveness of R&D in Formula One have transformed the sport in terms of car design, driver safety and more. Nowadays, F1 teams are working flat out to find the right innovations and developments that could make all the difference in the world championship.
