Brackley, situated 70 miles northwest of London, has been the home of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team ever since the three-pointed star returned to F1 with its own works team in 2010.
The team operates a state-of-the-art technology centre in Brackley that covers an area of 60,000 square metres. The site provides cutting-edge facilities for the design, development, manufacturing, assembly and operation of Championship-winning Formula One cars.
The facilities include a wind tunnel, dynos and the team’s driver-in-loop simulator as well as the production resources required to maintain season-long development of the race car. The team’s technology campus is one of the leading locations in the world when it comes to simulation, lightweight construction, additive manufacturing, generative design, machine learning and other pioneering technologies.
Brackley is also home to Mercedes-Benz Applied Science (MBAS), a new business unit that leverages the best of aerospace and motorsport technologies, to deliver performance across the domains of land, sea and air. MBAS aims to develop unique, timely and innovative technical solutions and services tailored to the specific business challenges of its external clients.
