Grand Prix 2017 Mercedes-Benz Melbourne


Mercedes-Benz Melbourne and Mercedes-Benz Melbourne Airport had the privilege of inviting a selection of guests to the ‘Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge’ during the 2017 Australian Grand Prix Formula One. Our guests enjoyed the view of Turn 12, one of the fastest corners of the Albert Park Circuit.

Our four-day event commenced with the cocktail style “Mercedes-Benz Ladies Day’. The celebrations kicked off with a runway show featuring Dion Lee who showcased his collection for the upcoming season. The Australian designer created an impressive synergy between fashion and engineered design and his silhouettes had an element of sports-luxe yet captured femininity just perfectly. As the models marched down the runway for the finale, the roar of the Formula One racecars echoed throughout the room.

From March 24th to race day on March 26th, the course showcased international competition celebrating superior speed. It was a suspenseful lead up to the final race as we waited for Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas to dominate the racecourse. As 4’o clock approached on race day, the atmosphere at Albert Park was more vibrant than ever. The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Forumla One team claimed 2nd and 3rd position on the winning podium.

Mercedes-Benz Melbourne wish Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas a successful 2017 season and of course, a special thank you to all of our guests who joined us.
