This week we have been running a competition offering 10 people the chance to tour the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS factory in Brackley, England.

The winners will go behind the scenes of the team for which Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher raced this year and for which Lewis Hamilton will race next season.

They will have a unique opportunity to see where and how the cars are made, accompanied by our own James Allen and representatives of the team.

This superb opportunity, which takes place on the morning of Thursday November 8th is thanks to our partner UBS and to the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team.

We have had an amazing response with 645 entries in the last three days. The 10 winners, who have been picked at random are:

James Muscat


Darren Cutmore

Jon G

Emma Wood

Andrew Belson

James O’Brien

Ayusha Suhail

Alex Manning

Mathew Tuckee

Full details of the day will be emailed out to the winners tonight. If any of them are unable to make it, we will dip back into the list of entries for a replacement.

Thanks to everyone for entering.
