Having studied a BTEC Level Three in Engineering at Northampton College, Matthew landed the role as part of a tie-in with the Brixworth-based power unit manufacturer. He will start his apprenticeship with HPP after completing his qualifications at the college, giving him the perfect platform to pursue a career in F1.

Matthew said: "Receiving the placement with Mercedes was such a confidence boost. Working as part of a team creating F1 engines is incredible, it's the dream really, and I have definitely found my true calling in engineering. My work ethic has changed so much since coming to Northampton College and I feel honoured that HPP think I am worthy of working for them."
