Our Ethos

All in Performance. That is the mindset that defines our thinking as a team.

We demand the very best from ourselves and give our very best to each other every day. We are determined and confident in our capability to win through technical excellence and teamwork. Every member of our Team is empowered to achieve our goals. We honour that responsibility by delivering to the best of our abilities and to the highest standards of quality.

At the heart of our performance is trust: we have the courage to fail, the character to be accountable and the strength to see failure as an opportunity. When we make mistakes, we transform them into opportunities to learn and improve. Each day we fail is a day for our rivals to regret, because these are the days when we become even stronger to beat them again.

Winning on track brings an unparalleled sense of achievement that rewards and feeds our passion. To achieve our vision, our team including our drivers will – and must – be tested.

In the face of these tests, we contribute positively to motor racing and the legacy of the Silver Arrows by maintaining the highest levels of integrity in the context of intense competition.

This is the way we love it: no excuses, no blame – just passion, respect, innovation, determination and excellence.

Best Team wins. Best driver wins. In that order.

Together, we share a common set of values.


We love what we do, we share high energy, and we celebrate our achievements.


We listen, challenge openly and give credit where it is due


We are pioneers who approach new ideas with an open mind.


We never back off and we keep a level head when the pressure is on.


Our aim is to always raise our standards and set the benchmark within our sport.

The challenge of winning in F1 is formidable because of the outstanding quality of our competitors. And this is our mindset: the greater the challenge, the better.
