About Us

Accelerating insights

Performance Insights was founded to provide clients with access to the very best talent from across its Formula 1™ networks. 

We pride ourselves on our in-depth knowledge of both the F1™ and events industries, working with public speaking agencies, event planners and clients to ensure outcomes meet expectations, creating memorable audience experiences.  

About Us

Based on experience

The company was founded in 1999 by Formula 1™ team executive Mark Gallagher after he was invited to become a keynote speaker at a global telecoms conference, sharing the stage with the President of Sony and Mikhail Gorbachev, former President of the Soviet Union.  

Formerly with Jordan Grand Prix, Mark subsequently worked with Jaguar / Red Bull Racing before leading Cosworth's F1 business unit.  

About Us

Understanding client needs

Since no two client events are the same, Performance Insights works closely with public speaking agencies, event planners and clients to meet their precise needs in terms of content, tone, format, logistics and technical requirements.

The company has placed talent into events around the world, reflecting Formula 1™'s global footprint and the acclerated demand from clients to gain insights from this compelling sport.


About Us

A sporting network

The first driving talent to work with Performance Insights was 13-times Grand Prix winner David Coulthard, soon joined by his former McLaren team mate, two-times World Champion Mika Hakkinen.  Canada’s only World Champion Jacques Villeneuve followed and, since then, Performance Insights has selected other high profile names who enjoy sharing their insights with audiences, often working discreetly to match world famous names to private client events.

About Us

Attention to detail

Today the company has worked with no fewer than eight World Champions, current and former team principals, senior engineers, team managers and designers.  We aim to ensure that there are no commercial conflicts of interest with existing team sponsors or technical partners, while a number of previous clients have subsequently become official F1 team partners.
