The new PETRONAS Trackside Fluid Engineer will be mentored by the incumbent engineers to ultimately lead PETRONAS’ trackside service activities and be among technical specialists who make up the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport trackside support team.
PLI Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer, Guiseppe D’Arrigo said: “The opportunity to be part of the team working on the sharp end of fluid technology development for the fastest and most powerful drivetrains in the world is rare, exciting and should not be missed. If you have what it takes, step up and join us as the next PETRONAS Trackside Fluid Engineer.”
Also present was PETRONAS Lubricants International Chief Technology Officer, Eric Holthusen and PETRONAS Trackside Fluid Engineer, Ahmad Nasri Shafie. PLI relies on the collective knowledge of its technology team, including the crew serving the trackside needs of Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport, and Formula One is a key element in developing and proving product concepts to pave the way for future fluid technologies.
“PETRONAS has been integral to the team’s success and our partnership has played a fundamental role in the four consecutive world championship titles we have won together so far,” added Toto Wolff, Team Principal and CEO, Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport.
“Their technical expertise when it comes to modern Formula One power units has been of great value to the team, and we have enjoyed a competitive edge from their fuels and lubricants. Having experts in fluid engineering as part of the team in a dedicated trackside fuel lab has given us an advantage, as it means that we can run many of the tests required at the track. We know that our employees are the key to our success and are very excited about PLI’s initiative to scout and nurture new talent to support us trackside.”
PETRONAS has deployed engineers who have travelled with the team since the start of the partnership with Mercedes F1 in 2010. The engineers operate in a compact lab for fluid-related service activities at Formula One tests and race events around the globe. They provide real-time analysis on PETRONAS Fluid Technology Solutions™, a customised suite of products and services which includes PETRONAS Primax Fuel, PETRONAS Syntium Lubricant and PETRONAS Tutela Functional Fluids for the Mercedes works team and Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains (HPP) customer teams as well.
