Helene Patounas

Formula 1 Nutritionist

I specialise in health and high performance, and deliver Hintsa Performance nutrition programmes within many sectors including the worlds of business and Formula 1. I have been supporting Formula 1 driver nutrition since 2012 and have the privilege of working with current and past World Champions and teams. My approach is science-based but ensures that advice is made simple, realistic and achievable for those working in challenging environments.


I have carried out research in ‘optimising cognitive performance and recovery speed through personalised nutrition’ and am currently undergoing further research in Formula 1, alongside the Hintsa Performance team. I hold a Master’s degree in Personalised Nutrition, a first class degree in Nutritional Therapy, and an International Business degree from 2000.​
