2018 was the year that Mercedes-AMG Petronas secured their fifth consecutive Formula One™ Constructors’ Championship and you can gain a deeper understanding of how they have achieved this with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Experience.

Hear all about the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Experience from glorified petrolhead Lee who attended the 2018 British Grand Prix at Silverstone with his friend:

“I’ve been to Silverstone for a number of different events over the years, including the British Grand Prix, and I’ve always had a great day out each and every time.

When I found out from a friend about the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes with the Mercedes team and hear all about what makes them tick, I knew that it was something I couldn’t miss out on and my friend Jason was on the same wavelength.

It was pretty surreal to be heading to Silverstone on the Saturday, the day before the actual race itself and that feeling seemed to be the general mood as everyone on the coach was buzzing with excitement.

When we arrived at the venue the Thomas Cook Sport staff were extremely helpful in letting us know how the day would run and getting to hear about what we had in store for the day only added to the excitement for Jason and myself. 

As well as hearing about the rest of the day's plans, it was here that we also received our pack of merchandise that included an official Mercedes-AMG Petronas team polo shirt, cap, umbrella and even earplugs. We’d pre-selected the sizes of the polo shirts and they fitted really nicely and were certainly true to size.

On entering the Brooklands Hospitality Suite for the event we were welcomed with some lovely canapes and a selection of drinks, that we could help ourselves to for the rest of the afternoon, whilst we were given a welcome and an introduction from the compere. 

It was then that the main event kicked off and we got the chance to hear from Pete ‘Bono’ Bonnington, Lewis Hamilton’s race engineer, and Andrew Shovlin, trackside engineering director about all things Mercedes that including the teams aims for the weekend, the season ahead as well as everything that goes into becoming the all-conquering beast they are. 

After hearing from Bono and Andrew, about everything Mercedes, we then got the opportunity to really geek out as the Q&A kicked off. This was, without doubt, the highlight of the whole experience for me as they both really took the time to give everyone who asked questions the most in-depth answers they could. 

Once the Q&A wrapped up we dived straight into a quiz based on what we’d heard and learnt so far about Mercedes and there were some incredible prizes on offer that included the chance to get a behind the scenes tour of the Mercedes pit on race day. 

Unfortunately, neither myself nor Jason won but it didn’t matter as we still had the rest of the afternoon to enjoy the surroundings of the Brooklands Hospitality Suite, where the balcony doors were opened up for everyone to enjoy the sun beaming over the circuit, soundtracked by live music and DJs from the Ministry of Sound entertainment stage.

Afterwards, we had a coach transfer back to the hotel and everyone on the way back was still buzzing about the event and we’d got much more than just a peek behind the curtain of Mercedes. 

Neither Jason nor myself came away knowing exactly how Lewis Hamilton goes as fast as he does but we both know a little bit more about all the great work that Mercedes do and how they help get Lewis Hamilton on the podium as often as he does.”
