Bringing formula 1 closer to the fans

Eye-catching display heralds start of another year of Grand Prix Sundays at Mercedes-Benz World

Ahead of the 2011 Formula One season, Nick Fry, head of the Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One Team recently unveiled a new View Suspended II display at Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey.

This art form of a Formula 1 car can be seen every day by visitors to the brand experience centre alongside the Formula 1 exhibition.

Comprising of over 3,200 precision engineered components that have been meticulously arranged by Dutch artist Paul Veroude, the art form aims to dramatically deconstruct a racing chassis.

Along with this new installation the exhibition includes a number of race machines, all powered by Mercedes-Benz engines. The cars on display are the 2010 season cars driven by Nico Rosberg and former World Champion Michael Schumacher, the 2009 Force India car driven by Adrian Sutil and Giancarlo Fisichella, the 2007 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes car driven by Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso and Mika Hakkinen’s 1999 championship winning Team McLaren Mercedes car.

Continuing the theme, Grand Prix Sundays return with the action starting on May 8th for the Turkish Grand Prix. This year there’s also AMG passenger rides and driving experiences available from £15 per person – for adults and children – plus driving displays from the Silver Arrows Display Team, which will see four professional drivers in AMG cars perform synchronised manoeuvres.
