”I felt like I was part of the team”

A day in the life of the Get Personal 2013 Competition Winner Jukka Hauta-aho 

Jukka stands in the 2013 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix, astonished. Somebody has just asked him a question related to Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, thinking that he is an actual member of the team!

Jukka Hauta-aho is the lucky winner of the Mobil 1TM 2013 Get Personal competition, which earlier this year gave motorsport fans the chance to get up close and personal to Grand Prix racing through Mobil 1’s partnership with the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 Team. Over 12,000 participants from across Europe and the Middle East entered, with almost 1,200 of those entries coming from Finland. 

Accompanied by his father, Jukka was flown to Texas by Mobil 1 and was invited to join the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team at the 2013 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix in Austin, for a once in a life time opportunity to not only meet the team, but actually be a part of the team!

Jukka commented, “Meeting the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team was the best part of the trip. The most unforgettable moment for me was spending time in the team area after the qualifications. The drivers were giving interviews, whilst former top drivers worked as commentators for TV channels. I even spotted some celebrities there too, which was exciting!”

Their fun-filled packed agenda included working with both the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes and Mobil 1 teams, as well as observing other motorsport leaders in action like Pirelli and Skysports. They were even given behind the scene duties, like helping with pit stop rehearsals and cleaning the rims of the tires after the race.

“It was incredible to see how everything at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes works like clockwork, and even though they were busy with adjusting the cars everyone was still very friendly and had time to answer all of our questions”, Jukka continued. “On Sunday we also got to spend time at the Mobil 1 suite, enjoying their great hospitality. This trip was definitely something I will never forget, thank you Mobil 1 for this amazing opportunity!”
