This sends an important message: our team and PETRONAS are no longer just partners, we are family, and we will be one team for many more years to come…From 2026, advanced sustainable fuel will be at the heart of F1 performance – and this gives us a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate our expertise in this domain, through both the power unit and PETRONAS Fluid Technology Solutions™. We are excited to be racing into the future alongside PETRONAS, with the ambition to set the standard once again, in our on-track performance and by pioneering the transition of a global sports team to a net-zero future.”

From its beginning in 2010, the Mercedes AMG-Petronas partnership has become one of the more recognizable in all professional sports. In a vision of achieving world-class performance, the partnership has seen eight world constructors’ championships, seven world driver’s championships, and 115 race victories.
