What we do

    What we do

    At Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains we develop the entire Formula 1 Power Unit from concept to racing, and in doing so need a depth of expertise in both hardware and software across all elements of our Formula 1 hybrid Power Unit:

    • Internal Combustion Engines
    • Turbochargers
    • High Speed, High Power Electric Machines (MGUH, MGUK)
    • Power Electronics
    • Energy Storage Systems



    Overview of HPP “Value Chain”


    Our mission is to win every Formula 1 World Championship and have zero race weekend failures.

    We are driven by realising ambitious, innovative technologies that both increase thermal efficiency and on-track performance (resulting in faster qualifying and race lap times).

    Throughout our development iterations we continually focus on our core principles:

    • Speed and flexibility
    • Technical excellence
    • Quality

    We aim to maximise our rate of learning by achieving as many ‘Right-First-Time’ development iterations as possible within a given time frame.

    To achieve our mission we strive to ensure our Power Units incorporate the best engineering solutions, having been thoroughly proven out on our test facilities in Brixworth before being deployed at the race track.
