Electronics Industrial Placement

Brackley, United Kingdom

At the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, a group of passionate and determined people work to design, develop, manufacture and race the cars driven by seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton and Grand Prix winner George Russell.

Whether working in our Operations, Technical, Race or Business Support functions, we are all in and aspire to build the greatest team in the history of our sport.

Every individual plays their part. No stone is left unturned in the chase for every tenth of a second. The history of our sport is long and rich, and we are continuing our journey with renewed effort year on year. Record books remember the names of a few, but history is written by the many.

  • Software and Embedded Systems.
  • PCB Design and Layout.
  • Electronics Housing or Harness Design.
  • Circuit Testing or Electronics Fault Finding.


  • Completing a degree in an electronics related subject.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and team working ability.

So, if you are skilled and passionate about electronics and wish to experience a career within the F1 industry, we would love to hear from you.
