The 2018 Formula 1 season is already underway for Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas – while truck driver Qazim “Albi” Bozhdaraj waits in the starting blocks. Once again, DB Schenker is the Official Logistics Supplier at all of the European races, working on behalf of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, the team surrounding the reigning world champion and his colleague from Finland.
“Albi” and an entire crew of truckers are tasked with transporting the motorhome, which is where the Formula 1 racing team holds press conferences or receives guests, from circuit to circuit. Assembling and dismantling the motorhome is the responsibility of another group of DB Schenker employees. The first of a total of nine races scheduled to take place in Europe this season will be the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on May 13.
