Gerson Garsed-Brand founded Sabe Fluid Dynamics in July 2019 after a 10 years’ spell working as a Formula 1 aerodynamicist in the race car development and performance. Sabe started as a 100% consultancy focused business and developed projects for motorsport teams in WRC and LMP2, America’s Cup, as well as automotive and energy sectors.
Gerson’s friend Josselin Guillozet – a running buddy during their time working at Renault F1 Team – joined Sabe in September 2020. Following his experience working at General Electric and Renault F1, Josselin brings a wealth of expertise in the energy sector, turbomachinery applications and software development. Josselin took the position of Technology Director and has since been driving the R&D development within the organisation.
During their development work in the America’s Cup campaign ending in 2021, Sabe partnered with Pete Rawcliffe. Pete and Gerson have a long-term friendship dating back from their time working at Caterham F1 Team. Pete has worked for many years in aerodynamic development, including senior positions in Formula 1, Aston Martin and as the Head of Aerodynamics on the Dyson Automotive project. In May 2021 Pete decided to join Sabe in the position of Engineering Director and will be responsible for driving the development of the engineering services activities within the company.
