Mercedes-AMG Petronas f1 Team adds to ROKiT British F4 Prizes

Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team – Simulator & HQ

The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team is gifting a rare opportunity to the 2023 ROKiT F4 British Championship Certified by FIA winner. The driver who tops the 2023 standings will receive a Formula One® simulator experience at the team’s state-of-the-art campus in Brackley.

Soon after the close of the British F4 season, the winner will spend a half-day at the home of the eight-time World Constructors’ Champions undertaking a full session in the Mercedes-AMG F1 simulator. Following a similar programme to that of the team’s race drivers Sir Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, they will work closely with the team’s engineers throughout. Following a pre-session briefing, the winner will undertake a full driving programme, receiving feedback and coaching throughout, before completing the day with a post-session debrief. The prize will help the driver continue their development and prepare them for future steps in their racing career.

The FIA F4 championships are designed specifically as a road to Formula One, and the British F4 Championship now holds official links with three of the teams. In addition to the Mercedes-AMG F1 simulator experience, the winner also receives an experience with McLaren Racing, embedding into the team for the British Grand Prix, and a year-long coaching programme and expert guidance from BWT Alpine Formula 1 Team at the Alpine Racing Human Performance Centre.

Hugh Chambers, CEO Motorsport UK
“On behalf of Motorsport UK and the British F4 Championship I’d like to thank Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 for this generous contribution. We are very much about development of our drivers and this prize is a great step in their career. We know that our F4 championship helps to give drivers the skills they need to succeed as evidenced by having three drivers in F1 already and more heading through the ranks of Formula 2 and Formula 3. The grid is looking to be very strong this year so it will be interesting to watch the battle for the title. The winner then having the simulator experience and the opportunity to engage with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team is fantastic.”
