    NEWS: Mercedes to Sponsor International Women in Engineering Day 2018.

The Team have been announced as the latest sponsor of International Women in Engineering Day 2018.

International Women in Engineering Day, which takes place annually on 23 June, is an international awareness campaign to raise the profile of women in engineering and celebrates the outstanding achievements of women engineers throughout the world.

"Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport is committed to supporting initiatives that drive female talent by inspiring girls and young women to seek careers in engineering," said Mercedes-AMG Motorsport boss Toto Wolff.

"We share the same mission within our Formula One Team, whether we are male or female, which is to build a legacy of championship-winning Silver Arrows race cars.

"In the same way, we strive to create a culture where female engineers can thrive and succeed.

"I'm pleased to see a growing number of women in engineering roles across all the technical functions of our Team but there is still more to do if we are to also encourage the next generation.

"Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport is proud to recognise the achievements of women in engineering as a supporter of International Women in Engineering Day 2018."

The theme of this year's International Women in Engineering Day is 'Raising the Bar', which invites individuals or organisations to show how they are making positive change.

We encourage everyone to join in to help celebrate women in engineering and encourage more girls and young women to consider engineering as a career.
