Mercedes F1 extend James Allison’s contract

January 23, 2024

The Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team have announced that James Allison will continue on as their Technical Director following a long-term contract extension agreement with the 55-year-old.

As Mercedes’ Technical Director, Allison has overseen four Drivers’ titles and five consecutive Constructors’ titles. He was briefly the Brackley-based team’s Chief Technical Officer before resuming his Technical Director duties in April 2023. 

Allison joined the team in 2017 and is now set to be at the helm heading into the major rule changes phase of 2026.

James Allison commented:

F1 has brought me a lot of good fortune, but none greater than answering Toto’s call to join Mercedes in 2017. It is a great privilege to continue this adventure, working alongside brilliant colleagues and fighting together for championship success.

Toto Wolff, Team Principal and CEO, Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team, said:

I am thrilled that James has committed his long-term future to the team. Put simply, he is the most impressive technical leader in our sport. His gladiator spirit, along with his knowledge, experience, and determination, make him second-to-none. His influence and impact, however, goes so much further than that. 

Since joining in 2017, he has been a key ally and sparring partner for me personally. We can challenge each other openly and honestly; an embodiment of the ‘tough love’ culture of the team that is vital in helping us all perform at our very best. Most importantly though, James is a true friend you can rely on, not only in times of success but in difficult moments too. It has been a pleasure to work with him over the past seven years and I look forward to doing so for many more to come.
