World Con­struct­ors’ Champ­ion­ship part two

Fan specialist ebm-papst cele­brates a second succes­sive World Cham­pi­onship as an offi­cial Team Partner, providing tech­nology solu­tions at both track­side and at the Team’s head­quar­ters

For the second time in two seasons, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula OneTM Team has won the FIA Formula One World Construc­tors Cham­pi­onship* following its perfor­mance at the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday, 11th October 2015. By claiming 12 victo­ries from 15 races so far this season and claiming 531 points, the driver part­ner­ship of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have given the Team an unas­sail­able lead with four races to go in the 2015 Cham­pi­onship. ebm-papst, the global leader in venti­la­tion and drive tech­nology, is proud to have contributed to MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS’ success for a second year having entered a part­ner­ship with the Team as a direct conse­quence of the power unit effi­ciency regu­la­tions that were intro­duced for 2014.

Head of Mercedes-Benz Motor­sport, Toto Wolff, reflected: “Success in Formula OneTM requires absolute atten­tion to every small detail and having part­ners who both share those values and can contribute to improving our organ­i­sa­tion is hugely valu­able. ebm-papst have improved our human perfor­mance envi­ron­ment in the team garages in trop­ical climates as well as providing tech­nical cooling solu­tions for our race cars. But their help also extends to providing solu­tions at our head­quar­ters that not only improve working condi­tions, but allow us to save money that can be used to enhance car perfor­mance. As a team, we are delighted with the contri­bu­tion that ebm-papst have made to our successes this year.”

Thomas Borst, Managing Director Sales and Marketing ebm-papst Group, states: “It’s a great honour for us to be an Offi­cial Team Partner of MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS. Being part of this outstanding racing team is also a great refer­ence for our company and it gives our customers a good impres­sion of the varied appli­ca­tion and high quality of our prod­ucts. We are delighted that MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS has won the FIA Formula OneTM World Construc­tors Cham­pi­onship for the second time in succes­sion and that as a team, they have mastered the new energy effi­cient regu­la­tions that fit perfectly with our Green­Tech philos­ophy: effi­ciency through state-of-the-art tech­nology”.

The company was recog­nised in 2013 as the winner of the German Sustain­ability Award (GSA) in the cate­gory “Germany’s most sustain­able compa­nies” – one of the most pres­ti­gious prizes of its kind in Europe. ebm-papst has since devel­oped energy-effi­cient attach­ment cooling solu­tions for the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 W05 Hybrid and F1 W06 Hybrid cars, which cool the temper­a­ture-sensi­tive compo­nents of the vehi­cles down to the optimum oper­ating temper­a­ture. These fans in the side­pods and roll hoop open­ings of the car are an essen­tial compo­nent of the car’s temper­a­ture manage­ment system. Fan specialist ebm-papst also provides MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS with an inno­v­a­tive garage cooling system which improves the working envi­ron­ment at Grand Prix signif­i­cantly – an impor­tant task when dealing with outside temper­a­tures of up to 40 degrees Celsius at racing loca­tions such as Kuala Lumpur and Singa­pore. Further­more, ebm-papst fans are used for improving the working condi­tions and energy effi­ciency at the team’s oper­a­tional facil­i­ties in Brackley (Great Britain).
