F1 is back

** UPDATE ** - Race over! One-two finish for Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg at the Australian Grand Prix. That is the 30th F1 win for the Silver Arrows! Sebastian Vettel and the Ferrari team took the 3rd pole position. To conduct the after race interviews, the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger hit the podium.

F1 is back and the 2015 season is already off to a great start for the BlackBerry sponsored MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team. Having ended the 2014 season as F1 Constructors' Champions for Mercedes-Benz, the team hit the Australian Grand Prix track for qualifying where Lewis Hamilton set a time of 1 minute, 26.327 seconds, six-tenths of a second faster than teammate Nico Rosberg as Mercedes made it a one-two in qualifying.

Now, it's time to get back to work and as such, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team has now unveiled its 2015 Formula One World Championship challenger, the F1 W06 Hybrid, ahead of the first day of pre-season testing at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain.

That alone would be a great season for the team, but there's more!

From the office to the track, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 team stays secure with BlackBerry

Body: 

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.

A wonderful weekend of CrackBerry fun at the Canadian Grand Prix!

Body: 

What an AWESOME weekend!! The 2014 Canadian Grand Prix is now racing history, and what a race it was. I can't help but think maybe the CrackBerry team's presence brought a bit of bad luck, as for the first time this year the Mercedes F1 Team — who is sponsored by BlackBerry — was not at the top of the podium on Sunday afternoon. That said, it was easily the most exciting race of the season and we had a blast all weekend long spreading the CrackBerry and BlackBerry love through the streets of Montreal. Be sure to watch the Story Maker video above for a recap of the weekend, and keep reading for more of the details, including the contest winner for a CrackBerry Racing Polo shirt!

Within the Formula 1 MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team organization, there are BlackBerry devices all over the place. Hundreds of team members use them to communicate on a daily basis, and the 60+ team members that travel the globe during the season really put their devices to the ultimate test. BlackBerry helps to give them a solid ground of communication and security whether at home or on the road, and Matt Harris, who runs IT for the Mercedes MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team, took some time to shed a bit of insight into how BlackBerry helps keep them moving.
