I am the Managing Director of Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains, where the power units for the company’s Formula 1 cars are developed and built. In the future, the company will also be manufacturing such units for road vehicles. I would like to explain some technical details of the Formula 1 engine and reveal my method for motivating my team to achieve top performance over and over again.
I’m one of about 500 employees in Brixworth, England, where Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains is located. This is where the engines that power Lewis’ and Valtteri’s F1 cars are created. The power units for the Williams and Force India Mercedes partner teams are also produced in Brixworth. The F1 M09 EQ Power+ is our power unit for this season. It’s a great piece of engineering and a lot of heart and soul went into developing and building it.
