Leadership the Formula One Way – Mark Gallagher

Mark Gallagher - Co–owner Status GrandPrix racing team formerly with Jordan Grand Prix, Red Bull Racing and Cosworth

In Formula One teams, 90% of the team work behind the scenes. Only 10% “go to the races” but without the 90% the 10% cannot succeed. The team behind the team, is key.

Formula One has non-negotiable deadlines. We are all familiar with ‘split second timing’ in pit stops, but this discipline and approach also applies to never missing deadlines The Grand Prix season and racing schedule is fixed. Imagine if a Formula One team turned up 2 days late for a race!  This pressure, demands that the teams operate at the highest levels of efficiency.

A Formula One team is a medium sized manufacturing business, with up to 900 full time staff operating across a wide range of functions and disciplines. Cross functional alignment and common goals are essential. Over the years Formula One teams have learned from their mistakes, built on their successes, and have developed winning team strategies and behaviours.

Success and failure is part of the appeal of Formula One; our successes and our failures are very public, and every 2 weeks, resilience in the face of adversity, continuous improvement, a learning culture where we celebrate our successes and learn from our failures is part of what makes for success.
