Even racing’s ideal conditions are less than ideal. In the second installment of Engineering Racing Greatness, a collaboration between Andretti Autosport and TE Connectivity, we take a look at the heat, vibration, and other conditions that impact a car’s performance.

"It was kind of a so-so day. I made a bit of a mistake at the restart where I ran into (Juan Pablo) Montoya; it didn’t hurt him as much as it did us, I guess (haha). It was a long day… The car felt pretty good, we just couldn’t get by people - that was the trickiest part - we really struggled on passing people. It felt great to be back at Indianapolis Motor Speedway - the fans were awesome. I wish we had a better result, I’m pretty disappointed but on to the next one. Huge thank you to everyone at TE Connectivity for giving me the opportunity, and the Andretti Autosport guys did an amazing job the whole month, so I’m looking forward to hopefully working with everyone here at Andretti again.

But like most drivers, De Silvestro's ambitions are fueled by cash and when her sponsorship ran out, so did her brief time in Formula One.

No one, it seems, will be surprised if Simona de Silvestro is in contention over the final laps of the 99th Indianapolis 500 on Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Swiss driver will make her fifth start at the Brickyard, but it is the first time she'll pilot a car equal to her talent. In four starts with the HVM and KV racing teams, she finished on the lead lap in cars with underpowered engines.

But women drivers like Mann are almost as becoming as hard to find as a great seat at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Sunday's race. Ten years after Danicamania became a national catchphrase out of Indy, there seems to be a decided lack of talented women racers. Mann and Simona de Silvestro are the only women in the 33-car field, and neither is considered a serious contender for the checkered flag.

From TE Connectivity’s unveiling of a fully functional 3D printed motorcycle to Forecast 3D’s reveal of a race car with more than 70 3D printed parts, the show floor was alive with innovation and ingenuity. The motorcycle, in particular, is quite impressive considering it was printed using ABS plastic and is capable of holding two adults.

Does one need four years of college education in order to succeed as an engineer or developer? Several Internet of Things experts say no.
