While it is the drivers that get all the credit, a Formula 1 team employs hundreds of people with each individual playing a crucial role in the team's success.

The Mercedes F1 team have been one of the most dominant forces in all of motorsport with the German team winning seven straight Drivers' and Constructor's championships between 2014 and 2020.

Looking for an eighth double, Mercedes must ensure that the team is well prepared and organised on various fronts as they visit racetracks across five continents. Andrew Shovlin, the team's trackside director plays a key role in ensuring the cars are in top condition for both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.
