Unique opportunity to go behind scenes at Mercedes F1 factory
Posted By: James Allen  |  07 Oct 2013   |  11:22 am GMT  |  1,127 comments

One of the big stories of 2013 has been the rise of Mercedes as a force in F1 with wins and pole positions for Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. And they are one of the favourites for 2014, when F1 moves to a new technology formula.

And now JA on F1 together with our partner UBS is delighted to offer readers the chance to go behind the scenes at the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team headquarters in Brackley, near Silverstone, to see how the team builds the cars and to ask questions.

We are offering 10 people the chance to tour the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS factory. And you’ll be accompanied by our own James Allen to give insights into any areas of interest you may have in current F1, including race strategy.

This site is all about bringing the fans closer to the sport and providing insight and this amazing opportunity will certainly do that!

We did a tour of the Brackley facility last year, just after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the winners were amazed by the access they got: “It was amazing!” said Alex Manning. “I wasn’t expecting to actually be standing next to the cars from Abu Dhabi and speak to so many staff – the highlight was definitely the 49 mins with Jock Clear, absolutely fascinating insight into the world of F1. Brilliant experience.”

Refreshments will be served at the start of the event and there will be lunch afterwards.

The Tour takes place on Friday October 18th 2013, with arrival at 10-30am for an 11am start.

Entry is simple: Leave your name below and we will select ten winners at random on Monday 14th October at noon UK time. A post notifying the winners will be put up soon after.

      I’d like to nominate Hero Was Senna.

      Because when he does these things he really writes them up well for others and he is a massive fan of F1. He’s quite a good wordsmith.

      When I met him, his passion was palpable.

      Please pick Hero Was Senna… Carlo something or rather. ;)

  951. David A says:

    Don’t pick me – instead one of the winners just ask this question that has been on my mind for the last 20 years of following F1.*

    How do the teams develop the cars? Ok, sounds like a simple enough question, but with stable rules (pre 2014) , advanced CFD etc, how do they arrive at *new* solutions to what must be the same problems?. I don’t mean the standout stuff like f-duct and double diffuser, but the incremental changes that get applied race after race. Do they all sit round on a Monday with a whiteboard and marker pen? How do these guys/girls suddenly have a better solution this week to make their car go faster than they did last week??

    * ok , changed my mind – pick me and I will ask the question and post the result here for the non winners, can’t say fairer than that :)

    Me please ;-) Pretty Please ;-)
