The Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team together with its Official Lubricant Partner Valvoline Global, today announced plans for a collaborative Valvoline Mechanics Month initiative. The annual initiative celebrates the vital role of mechanics globally, recognising their work to improve the efficiency, reliability, and performance of all transportation from road cars to F1.

Aston Martin Aramco will partner with Valvoline Global on multiple activations over the course of the year. A partnership with a local further education college will provide aspiring mechanics with vital work experience and insight into the world of Formula One.

Over 30 students will be invited to join the team at the AMR Technology Campus and trackside, providing lessons and invaluable hands-on experience in the lead-up to the British Grand Prix. At the end of the four-month programme, two students will be selected for an additional week of work experience, further enhancing their knowledge of working on Formula One race cars while under the mentorship of highly skilled Aston Martin Aramco mechanics.

During March, the Valvoline Mechanics Month emblem will adorn the helmets of the race team's pit crew at the Bahrain, Saudi Arabian and Australian Grands Prix. An all-new social media-based content series will also be launched. 'Mechanic' will showcase the working lives of team technicians across the 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship.
