Formula Student


Ross Brawn, Patron

Ross Brawn OBE Hon FIMechE is Formula Student's Patron and now Formula One Managing Director of Motorsports. He is a former Team Principal of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team.

Ross said “What I find most appealing about Formula Student is the innovation that it encourages, as the competition rules give the entrants a lot of design freedom.

Having worked my way up, I appreciate that to develop a good grounding in engineering, practical experience is essential. Formula Student combines hands-on practical applications with students’ academic studies, but also gives experience in vital skills such as budgeting, project management and team work.

Whether the competitors graduate to careers in motorsport or a different sector of engineering, Formula Student will help towards their future success.

I’m honoured to be Patron of this competition which truly does inspire the next generation of engineers"
