KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 2018 : Petroliam Nasional Bhd’s (Petronas) unit, Petronas Lubricants International (PLI), is looking for a Trackside Fluid Engineer to provide onsite technical support on the performance of its fluid technology solutions for four-time FIA Formula One™ World Champions, Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport.
The search is open until Oct 7 this year.
In a statement today, the national oil and gas company said PLI is giving qualified, passionate, driven and responsive individuals around the world a chance to be among the technical specialists who make up the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport trackside support team.
“We are very pleased to announce the first global search for a new Petronas Trackside Fluid Engineer to join us and be mentored by the incumbent engineers to ultimately lead our trackside service activities for Formula One,” PLI Group Chief Executive Officer Giuseppe D’Arrigo said.
PLI relies on the collective knowledge of its technology team, including the crew serving the trackside needs of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, and Formula One is a key element in developing and proving product concepts to pave the way for future fluid technologies.
“It is a rare and exciting opportunity to be part of the team that works on the sharp end of fluid technology development for the fastest and most powerful drivetrains in the world. Some might even consider it the coolest job in the world,” he said.
D’Arrigo said Petronas has deployed engineers who have travelled with the team since the start of the partnership with Mercedes F1 in 2010.
The engineers operate in a compact lab for fluid-related service activities at Formula One tests and race events around the globe and provide real-time analysis on Petronas Fluid Technology Solutions, a customised suite of products and services which include its Primax Fuel and Syntium Lubricant. – Bernama
