Go behind-the-scenes with the Team at two more races this season!
Looking ahead to the second half of the 2019 Formula One™ season, we are delighted to continue our partnership with Thomas Cook Sport - with exciting Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Experiences putting fans right at the heart of the action throughout the year; There are two events remaining this season in Italy and Abu Dhabi!
The experiences will provide fans with the opportunity to access to the inner workings of our team, through a live Q&A with one of our senior team members. They will also have the chance to win behind-the-scenes prizes, attend an exclusive VIP event and receive an official team Polo shirt - ingredients to make a race weekend experience extra special!
This year, guests have enjoyed Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Experiences in China, Spain, Monaco and Silverstone. Italy and Abu Dhabi still await, but what can you expect? Let’s throw back to our Spain event with Thomas Cook Sport...
Fresh from a qualifying session that saw a front row lockout for the team, our guests headed to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya’s main Grandstand. Greeted by Thomas Cook Sport staff, the guests were escorted to the Gold Hospitality Suite on the stand’s top floor with incredible views down onto the pit wall and home straight.
With delicious canapes and a sparkling drink in hand, some of our biggest fans were given time to relax, mingle and given the opportunity to get their hands on a few signed caps by Lewis and Valtteri, before the main event of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Experience.
A professional host conducted a Q&A session with our own team marketing expert Justin; who gave an incredible insight into what makes the team tick over a race weekend, from the sheer physical exertion of the drivers behind the wheel to the mass of hard work behind-the-scenes that goes into securing a 1-2 front row lock-out in Qualifying.
The 30-minute conversation wrapped up with fans getting the chance to flaunt their Formula 1 factoids for the chance to win two pairs of VIP passes to tour the pit lane and our garage prior to the race the next day!
