MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS completes the triple

With a successful race in Japan, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula OneTM Team can cele­brate winning the 2016 FIA Formula OneTM Construc­tors’ World Cham­pi­onship. In the third year of the part­ner­ship, Team Partner ebm-papst extends its congrat­u­la­tions on the Team’s third consec­u­tive title.

The Team around Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton can no longer be over­taken in the season’s remaining four races.

Thomas Borst, Managing Director of Sales and Marketing at the ebm-papst Group, said “Formula OneTM and fan tech­nology have more in common than one might think at first glance. We both strive to achieve ever higher effi­ciency by using high tech. That ulti­mately bene­fits our customers.”

In aero­dy­namics, for example, mini­mizing turbu­lent air flow is impor­tant for both cars and fans. The winglets on HyBlade® axial fan blades from ebm-papst reduce the amount of energy input, increasing the effi­ciency. Flex­ible carbon-fiber compos­ites are used to make cars lighter so they can accel­erate faster. For its HyBlade® axial fans, ebm-papst uses glass-fiber rein­forced plastic; here, too, lower weight means less mechan­ical stress.

Another good example of weight reduc­tion is the hollow fan blade in the RadiPac centrifugal fan. “Effi­ciency and quality from high tech pay off. We’re proud to be part­ners of such a successful team,” added Borst.
