Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and OMP Racing Partner Up for F1 2017
Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport is pleased to announce a new Team Supplier agreement with OMP Racing ahead of the 2017 Formula One season.
OMP, a world leading Italian company in the design and production of motorsport safety equipment, will provide their new generation safety harnesses for the team’s Silver Arrows race cars, to be driven this year by Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.
Recognisable by their unique black and white design, the next generation safety harnesses are the result of years of design and development expertise at OMP, and have recently been improved in line with the new FIA safety regulations for 2017, increasing the minimum impact resistance required.
The high-quality fibre increases performance, making them lighter (45% less weight compared to carbon fibre) and more resistant (50% improvement on resistance/weight ratio).
