We've teamed up with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to accelerate performance through new technology solutions...

We're delighted to announce a new partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), to enhance the team's operational efficiency, car performance and overall technology capability.

The new partnership kicked off at the Canadian Grand Prix, where HPE was welcomed to the team over the course of the race weekend.

HPE is focused on developing intelligent solutions that allow customers to capture, analyse and act upon data seamlessly from edge to cloud.

Through this exciting new partnership, the team will benefit from advisory services from HPE Pointnext, as well as innovative software solutions from HPE.

The partnership comes with a multi-year technology roadmap, with phased product and process implementation across the factory and trackside operations.

The first phase of HPE hardware installation was already completed at the factory in Brackley prior to the announcement, including the deployment of the Apollo high-performance computing (HPC) system.

"We are delighted to welcome Hewlett Packard Enterprise to Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport", said Toto Wolff, Team Principal & CEO.

"Data is becoming increasingly important - not just in the world of Formula One, but the world in general. In F1, we use data on our relentless search for performance, across all functions of the team - both at the track and at the factory.

"With the support of HPE we can better process and analyse that data, enabling our team members to do what they do best - from the early stages of conceiving a competitive car to the final moment of the car setup on a race weekend.

"Formula One has always been on the forefront of technological development and with partners like HPE we are able to accelerate our development rate to an even faster pace."

Antonio Neri, President and Chief Executive Office, HPE, added: "The future belongs to the fast - and nowhere is that more true than within the world of Formula One racing.

"We are thrilled to support Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport on their digital transformation journey and look forward to working alongside their team members to unlock new levels of innovation and performance - both on and off the track."

Jim Jackson, Chief Marketing Officer, HPE, explained: "The organizations that can turn data into knowledge, knowledge into insights and insights into outcomes will be the winners.

"Our sponsorship of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport is all about bringing the power of the world's best technology and services to a team with a history of innovation to fuel performance at the highest possible level."
