My aunt suggested that if I was interested in Mechanical Engineering that my first internship should be should be in Formula 1 where she lived in Oxford. We found a Tom Walkinsaw Racing working on the Arrows F1 car with open internships.  

I briefly met Tom Walkinshaw in his office and saw that he had hung his winning Jaguar Le Mans car on the wall.

I was introduced to air tunnel design, CAD drawings, welding, laser cutting, shake stress simulators, and a lot more. I got to inspect the new Clio V6 Renault Sport suspension developed by TWR.
