OCI’s performance allows the Oracle Red Bull Racing team to run real-time analytics throughout every race to help guide strategy decisions. OCI helped the team increase by 25% the number of Monte Carlo simulations it could run. By leveraging a modern technology stack, utilizing the power and flexibility of Kubernetes, they can scale up their simulation platform while keeping costs within the tight spending regulations defined by the sport.
Using Oracle CrowdTwist Loyalty and Engagement, the team last season launched The Red Bull Racing Paddock, a platform that lets fans earn points to get exclusive swag and digital downloads. Fans used The Paddock to redeem 35,000 digital rewards and submit thousands of questions to the team.
Through 22 races, rival drivers Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton took turns atop the podium and leaderboard, with Verstappen ultimately crowned champion. Oracle was there through every turn.
