Members of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team were told they are the jewel in the crown of South Northamptonshire at an event hosted by council Chairman, Cllr Richard Dallyn.
Last year the Brackley and Brixworth based team secured a fifth consecutive Formula One constructors’ championship and on 29 January 2019 they were congratulated during a celebratory evening at the South Northants Council (SNC) offices at The Forum in Towcester.
Cllr Dallyn welcomed senior management from both the Mercedes- AMG Petronas Formula One Team at Brackley and Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth along with representatives of the team’s apprenticeship programmes.
During the evening he said: “Having the F1 British Grand Prix at the world renowned Silverstone Circuit places the global limelight on the district. We are extremely fortunate history conspired to put the circuit where it is.
“Staying at the top of the F1 standings is somewhat harder.  Frankly I am amazed at the levels the team goes to, to keep at the top and for so long.
“But it is that kind of commitment, a commitment to strive for better, to innovate and win that leads to success.
“Mercedes-AMG Petronas is very much the jewel in the South Northants crown.”
Rob Thomas, Chief Operating Officer of Mercedes AMG-Petronas Formula One Team, said: “We are very honoured that the team’s success has been recognised by the council and the local community in this way.
“It was a very special occasion and all those who attended from the team feel privileged to have been invited.”
