It's hardly a secret that BlackBerry is one of the sponsors for the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 team. The partnership was announced back in February 2013 and continues today but rather than just being a sticker on the cars and a logo on the teams gear and fire suits, BlackBerry is deeply involved in the organization by providing BES 10 encrypted solutions and handsets across the board.

How important is BES 10 to the organization? Well, check out the video below featuring MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Executive Director (Technical), Paddy Lowe, and IT Director, Matt Harris who alongside MERCEDES AMG High Performance Powertrains Managing Director Andy Cowell, explains how BES 10 works for them as a team where the secure protection of data and information is paramount.

As a bit of a side note but still totally relevant, congrats to Nico Rosberg who not only got married recently but also claimed his first home German Grand Prix win at Hockenheim on Sunday, is number 1 in the Driver Standings, whose team is also number 1 in the Constructor's Standings and finally, signed a new contract with MERCEDES AMG. Check out Nico's thoughts on his win at Hockenheim.
