“It’s just a customer relationship,” he clarifies. “The team is looking forward to the partnership, and Mercedes in Brixworth (headquarters of the engine department; note by Purple.) Is looking forward to the partnership,” said Brown.

He looks positively on the future cooperation, which should build on successful times: “On both sides there are many people who worked together when they won races and championships. There are a lot in common with each other.”

“After all I’ve heard, you can see how well Mercedes is prepared to work with their customers – their communication, their timing, their well-oiled machine,” said Brown. “I only get feedback from the technical team about how happy they are and how smooth the cooperation is.”

“While we are designing the car, a lot of communication is necessary. And everything I hear is positive,” he emphasizes.

McLaren and Mercedes have already been from 1995 to 2014 partner. Three drivers ‘championships and one constructors’ championship could be won during this period.
