This weekend's Austrian Grand Prix marks the midpoint in a Formula One first - a triple-header of races. The GP in Spielberg comes seven days after the French Grand Prix while the cars; motorhomes and equipment must then be transported back to the UK for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone the following weekend.
It is a grueling logistical puzzle for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Team and one, which requires meticulous planning and monitoring to make sure everything arrives on time.
The Silver Arrows team use a total of nine trucks and several vans to carry all the race-related materials to the European races. This includes F1 car parts, garage equipment, the entire engineers office, IT racks, computers, support material (from floor cleaners to tool boxes), garage build equipment, and wheel rims.
On top of that, there is the team's plush three-story motorhome, kitchen and roof terrace, which is packed into 30 containers and put on to 18 additional trucks and transported to Austria. It's then dismantled on the Sunday immediately after the race, and driven on to Silverstone to be assembled again in time for the British Grand Prix weekender.
