With 19 races on the calendar, the transport of our equipment around the world is a fundamental part of the team’s operations. For the past two seasons, we have been working with the UK’s best-known logistics brand, the Stobart Group, to ensure the reliable and safe transport of our cars and garage kit.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Stobart Group, the UK channel Five are currently broadcasting a documentary series ‘Stobarts: Trucks & Trailers’ which follows the brand’s truckers in their daily working life. The final episode of a six-part series will be broadcast at 8pm on Friday 29 October featuring the MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team.
Friday’s episode will focus on three of our Stobart drivers and well-known faces around our factory… Ivor, Stuart and Jack, who are responsible for the transport of our equipment from the factory to the race tracks, including those precious Formula One cars driven by Nico and Michael.
You can follow the guys as they assist with our preparations for the Belgian Grand Prix at the factory and on the road to Spa. To catch this exclusive footage from the factory and get a better understanding of the hard work that goes on behind-the-scenes, make sure to tune into Five at 8pm tomorrow!
