Access for the gamers to the F1 team’s performance centre

Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports will be based at the premises of the Formula One team in Brackley where a purpose-built Esports training centre will provide the team’s gamers with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to develop their skills. Located in the same building as the Driver-In-Loop Simulator, where F1 and development drivers provide feedback to engineers on a virtual model of the car, the Esports programme will benefit from transferable elements pertinent to optimising car set-up and honing race craft. The new facility will enable the gamers to work on their gaming performance on multiple platforms and further improve their skills. Construction of this new training centre is expected to commence in the following weeks. The programme also focuses on human performance and will give the Esports team members access to the on-site Performance Centre covering the core areas of nutrition, physical conditioning and wellbeing that support the gamers in reaching their full potential.
