Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company signs F1 Mercedes partnership

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has announced a multi-year agreement with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport to be the first official hotel partner of the team.

Kicking off at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Montreal this weekend, the partnership brings together two likeminded brands committed to excellence and promises exclusive access and special experiences for members of Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International’s newly renamed travel program, which includes The Ritz-Carlton.

At various races throughout the season, Marriott Bonvoy Members will have an opportunity to interact with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, experience races from the paddock, and enjoy exclusive at-track VIP hospitality.

For the first event in Montreal, a Ritz-Carlton concierge desk will be available in the Silver Arrows Lounge where attendees can receive insider tips for exploring the city.

As part of the collaboration, the Ritz-Carlton logo will also appear on the racing suits of drivers Hamilton and Bottas.
