 robert newman  team principle  year: 5  Course: aerospace engineering  “I've been interested in cars and racing since I can remember. I starting karting when I was 8 and haven't done anything else since. I think Steve McQueen put it best “Racing is life. Everything in between is just waiting.”. Since joining the formula student team it's made the waiting quite a bit more enjoyable.”

 matt brown  technical director  year: 5  course: mechanical engneering  "“During my first three years with SFR I had design roles within CVD, was Events Coordinator and Manufacturing Director. Now, coming back from a year in industry with Williams Martini Racing, I will be taking on the role of Technical Director. My time on the team has not only taught me valuable engineering and management skills but lead to lifelong friendships! When I’m not working on Formula Student I can be found breaking my car, fixing my car, or rummaging through charity shops.”

 sam williams  manufacturing director  Year: 3  Course: mechanical engineering  "Since joining SFR, I have led the costing team to win at competition, led the business team and designed the side pods and floor plates for the car. As I have completed a focused DfM, hands-on apprenticeship, I have always been involved in the manufacturing - composites, machining and fitting. My passion for motorsport means the next year will be incredible. With one of the best group of people I’ve ever met, I get to bring a racing car to life!

 josh hopley  Year: 3  Course: Aerospace engineering  “"My formula student journey began in first year, where I became part of the Engine and Electronics team. During my second year I continued with this role and was set the task of designing the fuel system, (which turned out to be a very interesting one at that!!). I have a strong passion for aerodynamics and am therefore very excited to bring an aspect of that to the engine electronics team this year, with the role of designing the intake/shroud for the cooling system on SFR10. I have a passion for anything sporty, with that being Motorsport or general sporting activities. Outside of university you will therefore find me in the streets of sheffield riding my trials bicycle, playing football, swimming or running in the peak district."
