About Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains

Want to be a World Champion?

Simply, Mercedes are here to make history.

Who are we?

We’ve got an exceptional tradition in motor racing and have been the dominant team in Formula 1 for a number of years. At HPP (High Performance Powertrains) we’re responsible for the design and manufacture of Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 racing engines and hybrid power systems for the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team. We’re also proud suppliers to Sahara Force India and Williams Martini Racing.

What do we do?

We create the entire Formula 1 Power Unit, from concept all the way through to racing, and also undertake advanced, high technology projects to transfer F1 technologies into mainstream automotive and high performance road cars. You may have recently heard about our newest venture in this field, Project One, where we’re putting an F1 engine into a roadworthy car – the first of its kind, and a phenomenal engineering challenge.

So why would you want to join?

Joining the team at HPP will offer you all of the advantages you’d expect, and more! Working at a record breaking, Quadruple World Championship winning team, you’ll be operating in a fast paced learning environment and working on new and exciting technical projects. Perhaps most importantly, HPP gives you the opportunity to be coached, guided and challenged by literally the best in the world. We absolutely recognise and support formal training but also believe that that the most valuable stretch comes from learning from others, learning through doing, and learning through pushing the boundaries, every single day.
