Welcome back to the Silverstone Podcast. In this episode, we're joined by Williams' driver George Russell and as the country gears up for Half-Term, UCAS applications and the last few weeks of term before Christmas, we give you a guide to getting a dream job in Motorsport.

If you’ve ever fancied being a Race Engineer, a strategist, a driver or in media and communications, then this is the show for you.

Motorsport broadcaster Jennie Gow has a meeting with the Principal of Silverstone UTC – one of the first University Technical College’s to open. Neil Patterson gives a verbal tour of the college and relives the moment he first met Lewis Hamilton.

We also meet the first student to graduate from Silverstone UTC and start working for a Formula One team. Amber Morris is a CMM Inspector at Mercedes and tells us how she fulfilled her dream of Silverstone student to Silver Arrows staffer.

Plus, we chat to Andrew Green who is the Technical Director at Racing Point but when he started his career he worked for free and did almost every role you can imagine. He is the perfect person to give advice on how to get a job in F1.

And finally, we make dreams come true as one young F1 fan gets to grill Williams’ driver George Russell and if you’ve ever wondered what lengths people in the paddock will go to get a sneaky photo of a mega-star, then stay tuned…

This is the Silverstone Podcast as we take a deep dive into the role Silverstone plays in bringing on the next generation of Engineers, Mechanics and top racing minds. This is the episode that can help you get a job in F1 and motorsport.
