Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix

Mercedes-Benz is proud to support the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team.

Motor sports are in our DNA. The success story of AMG founders Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher started in the racing engine department of Mercedes-Benz. It was here that the foundation was laid for the racing expertise and unprecedented success of Mercedes-AMG. 

Since 2012 the AMG name has been firmly rooted in Formula 1 with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team setting and smashing numerous records. In the 2017 season, the Silver Arrows won 12 of 20 races, claimed 15 pole positions and led 714 out of 1,196 race laps, which resulted in their fourth consecutive World Constructors’ Championship win.

Melbourne city will come alive during the Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix this March, and Mercedes-Benz will be right in the heart of the action. The exclusive Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge, situated on turn 12, offers unparalleled views of one of the fastest corners on the Albert Park Grand Prix circuit and an outstanding race atmosphere.
