Spies Hecker applauds Mercedes-AMG

Spies Hecker has congratulated Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport on winning the 2017 FIA Formula OneTM World Constructors’ Championship, secured after the US Grand Prix on 22 October 2017.

This was in addition to driver Lewis Hamilton clinching the 2017 FIA Formula OneTM World Drivers’ Championship, at the Mexican Grand Prix on 29 October 2017.

‘These two wins can only be accomplished through exceptionally strong team work underpinned by outstanding technology. We are privileged to be a part of this, supplying our robust, efficient refinish paint systems to help the Silver Arrows stand up to the incredibly challenging and difficult environments of today’s international F1 circuits’.
