Louis Sharp enjoyed a half-day at Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team as a prize for winning the British F4 title.

The New Zealander undertook a session in the F1 simulator and was “completely blown away by the whole experience.”

The Kiwi prevailed after a season-long duel with Hitech’s Will Macintyre at Brands Hatch in a winner-take-all all weekend in Kent.

The Rodin Carlin driver arrived at Brackley just five days after capturing the British F4 title in his first full season.

The 16-year-old took part in a briefing prior to jumping into the simulator at the same factory that built eight consecutive World Constructors Championship-winning cars.

Sharp benefited from feedback from Mercedes throughout his visit to the factory and said:“To be honest, I was completely blown away by the whole experience! 

“It was fascinating the level of preparation and detail that we ran through, and the F1 simulator was just another level! 

“I really want to thank all the team at the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team and ROKiT British F4 for what was an unforgettable experience. 

“Hopefully in time, I’ll have the opportunity to be back in the F1 simulator doing race preparation!”

The Kiwi performed superbly throughout 2023, taking six wins en route to the championship, the most of any driver on the grid.
