Industry-Leading Solutions

Our dedicated engineers have developed a range of systems and products for actuation in many types of motorsport including Formula 1, World Rally Championship (WRC), Moto GP, Touring Cars, and Le Mans prototypes. Today’s Formula 1 cars use up to 11 of newer and more compact E024 Series valve, as well as highly responsive miniature actuators, pressure valves and power assisted steering valves, to control functions such as the inlet trumpet, rear wing, gearbox, turbocharger, throttle, clutch, differential, rear brake pressure limiting and steering.

History of the Car Used in Our Marketing

Moog has owned the Stewart SF1-4 Formula 1 car since 2007. Stewart Grand Prix was formed in 1996 by three-time Formula 1 champion Sir Jackie Stewart and his son, Paul Stewart. It was set up as a Ford Works-supported team but competed in Formula 1 for only three seasons, during which time the team achieved one win and one pole position.

At the end of 1999, Ford bought the team outright, and it was renamed Jaguar Racing. In 2004, Jaguar Racing was sold to Red Bull Racing.

The Stewart SF1-4 used Moog E050 series servo valves for the automated hydraulic control of:

  • Clutch
  • Gearshift
  • Differential
  • Throttle
  • Power-assisted brakes
