Bill Pearson

Bill Pearson

Chief Engineer

Bill joined Dynamique in 2019 bringing expertise in many areas of racing car development. Bill spent 4 years as the Chief Engineer for Mercedes DTM during which they won two championships. Prior to that Bill spent 17 years in Formula 1 across several teams including Brawn, Force India and Marussia, where, during this time, he held a number of positions including Head of Aerodynamic Analysis and was responsible for several key innovations. He was part of the vanguard of CFD in motorsport, playing a major part in being one of the first groups to successfully develop and use full car models as part of the design process. He has been involved in projects as diverse as the 2008 Beijing Olympic bike for TeamGB and developing the entire brake system for the 2009 Brawn GP car. He successfully continues to combine his in-depth knowledge of vehicle dynamics and aerodynamics with the practical skills required to turn this into performance on the track.

Victor Miyakawa

Chief of Simulation and Aero Performance

Victor began life in motorsport during university, working alongside the Super Aguri F1 Team and Hitco racing. For the following 13 years, he worked in F1 aerodynamics and CFD for Honda Racing F1, Brawn GP, Mercedes and Scuderia Toro Rosso, before joining Dynamique in 2019. His experience between CFD and experimental aerodynamics allows for a more holistic approach, combining the strength of all available tools to deliver performance. 

Jon Fernandez de Antona

Lead Engineer

After doing a placement as a wind tunnel model designer at Honda Racing F1, where he met many of his current team mates, Jon first Joined Dynamique in 2012 while he was finishing his MSc in Motorsport Engineering. Since then, Jon has worked directly as CAE and CFD Engineer with an emphasis in on aerodynamics, vehicle dynamics and thermal management on a wide range of projects from motorsports, to commercial and rail vehicles. This has included wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic optimisation of an F1 car, to vehicle dynamics modelling and trackside analysis, to using CFD to tackle complex aero-thermal problems of electric powered vehicles. In his spare time Jon enjoys hiking, programming in Python, playing music and learning about the human condition.
