The Ritz-Carlton and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Make a Finely Tuned Pair in Formula 1

The Ritz-Carlton and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Make a Finely Tuned Pair in Formula 1

The 20 cars launch from the starting grid like angry hornets from a hive, the din of their turbocharged 1.6-liter V-6 engines quickly diminishing as the racers catapult down the opening straightaway of Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, marking the start of Formula 1’s 2021 Mexico City Grand Prix. As a first-time attendee, I have numerous questions. Surprisingly, however, the biggest at the moment is whether to stay against the railing, immediately above pit lane, or go in for another glass of Champagne at the Ritz-Carlton’s exclusive Silver Arrows Lounge—part of a winning partnership between the hotel chain and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas racing team.

It’s a collaboration that began in 2019 with the Montreal Grand Prix, where Ritz-Carlton became the first official hospitality provider for Formula 1’s current constructors’ champion. Although the alliance survived Covid last season, the general public was persona non grata at any of the contests, but everything’s back in full gear now and the affiliation is mutually beneficial for select fans and the sport’s top racer alike.

“I’m probably going to 30 countries within the year,” notes seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton, in a conversation with Robb Report a few days prior to the race. Hamilton, who has been with Mercedes since 2013, goes on to explain that “what’s really, really important for me, and I think all of us on the team—the 100-plus of us traveling around the world—are home comforts. And the Ritz-Carlton goes so far out of the way for us; they try to make it more home.”

For the most successful racer in Formula 1 history, though, one element of hospitality trumps all others. “I travel a lot with my dog Roscoe, and they [the Ritz-Carlton] have a bed for him and end up putting toys in the room, so as soon as we walk in, Roscoe knows where he’s staying,” says Hamilton. “And if I need someone to take Roscoe out, for example, they are always there to give a helping hand—it feels like family, to be honest.” Hamilton also mentions that, in return, his team is “at all these great races and destinations and we’re highlighting the brand on more than 23 occasions throughout the year.”

When it comes to this particular race, the brand’s exposure is in overdrive with the opening of the first Ritz-Carlton in Mexico City only the week before. The 58-story tower flanks Paseo de Reforma in the financial district and houses 153 guest rooms, a full-service spa facility, a 24-hour fitness center and two restaurants, including the top floor’s Asian-themed Ling Ling by Hakkasan.

According to Donna McNamara, vice president & global brand leader for the Ritz-Carlton, the hotel “marks a particularly exciting moment for the brand as we made our foray into an incredible city rich with opportunities for immersive cultural exploration and discovery.” But to be expected, there have been some hiccups since the debut, admits general manager Luis Lopez, but the minor glitches, like the temporary lack of hairdryers and shower-door seals that do anything but, obviously didn’t deter numerous Formula 1 fans from making the impressive new addition to the skyline their basecamp.

Yet not all ticket-holding guests have access to the Ritz’s racetrack amenities, such as VIP tours of pit lane and entry to the Silver Arrows Lounge—that’s reserved for an elite few with the appropriate status in parent company Marriott’s loyalty program, Marriott Bonvoy. Those who have accrued enough points can unlock Marriott Bonvoy Moments packages and Ritz-Carlton Ultimate Weekend offerings that include rarified Formula 1 experiences through the Mercedes team that can’t be purchased otherwise.

Those who made the loyalty grade for the 18th race of the season were witnesses to quite the motorsport spectacle, as national hero and Red Bull Racing’s Sergio “Checo” Perez, from Guadalajara, went into the weekend with the country on his shoulders. Perez, who most recently took third place at the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Tex., earned fourth position in Saturday’s qualifying round, with the third spot going to the season’s current overall leader and teammate Max Verstappen. The Red Bull racers had finished behind Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, also with Mercedes, the latter earning pole position for the next day.

During the actual race on Sunday, though, the first turn provides all the drama. As Verstappen overtakes his rivals on the outside corner, Bottas spins after getting bumped by McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo, which causes a ripple of mayhem. Simultaneously, Perez is forced through the grass while Yuki Tsunoda of Alpha Tauri and Mick Schumacher of Haas are swept up in the chaos and sent to the showers early. The order at the top doesn’t jockey around much after that, though Verstappen makes a dash for the pits on lap 34, temporarily relinquishing the lead to Perez for six laps, as chants of “Checo” erupt throughout the stadium and grandstands along the roughly 2.6-mile circuit.

Inside the Silver Arrows Lounge on the Paddock Club’s second level, the action is broadcast on a massive display and smaller screens as analysts from Mercedes narrate and provide insights on the events as they unfold. All the while, uniformed wait staff deliver lobster tail, ravioli and sushi along with premium tequila and bubbly to tables already laden with bottles of Bordeaux.

But as compelling as the lounge proves to be, it’s no competition for the seats immediately outside during the final minutes, and the room nearly empties. From lap 40 on, Verstappen has again held the lead while No. 44 for Mercedes tries to not only reign him in, but keep the very real threat from Perez at bay. After 71 laps, however, Verstappen takes the checkered flag with ease and it becomes clear that the majority of those at the track are Red Bull zealots, especially after Perez takes the podium for third place, finishing just behind Hamilton.

With four more races to go, Mercedes has a mere one point lead overall in the 10-team standings while, on the drivers’ side, Verstappen extends his margin over Hamilton by 19 points. The next showdown is November 14 in Brazil and, regardless of the outcome, the Champagne will still be flowing in that venue’s Ritz-Carlton Silver Arrows Lounge well after it’s been sprayed by the winning racer.

Watch Highlights of the California Coastal Rally, and Look for More Down the Road

Watch Highlights of the California Coastal Rally, and Look for More Down the Road

Wanderlust. Through the course of the last year, all of us have caught it, the symptoms increasing with each passing day as the world compressed to within the walls of our respective homes for much of the pandemic. Dreams of escaping on a road trip with good friends, enjoying fine dining and accommodations at top resorts and rediscovering the freedom afforded only by the great wide open seemed, for a long time, to be as plausible as a journey to Mars. This past week, however, a select few found an antidote, Robb Report’s 2021 California Coastal road rally. Here’s a glimpse at some of the action. (Video courtesy of WayUp Media.)

From June 6 though 10, a cadre of 50 Robb Report RR1 club members in 27 supercars and exotics ventured through some of the Golden State’s most picturesque landscape between Santa Barbara and Napa Valley. With all Covid health and safety protocols strictly adhered to, the automotive parade marched just shy of 574 miles in three drive days.

After settling in at Santa Barbara’s Ritz-Carlton Bacara on Sunday, all the guests made a beeline to check out the other cars on display that would be joining them on the rally (additional eye candy was provided by Lugano Diamonds and Napoli-based menswear designer Isaia). Rally sponsor Porsche brought variations on its 2021 Panamera—including the GTS—and Cayenne for test-drives, while also supplying a couple of vehicles for the entire run.

Monday covered 260 miles, leaving freeway traffic within the first hour to join Pacific Coast Highway in San Louis Obispo. After a coffee break at Morro Rock, a 581-foot volcanic molar in the mouth of the surrounding bay, it was on to aptly named Ragged Point flanked by the Santa Lucia Mountains and crashing surf hundreds of feet below.

The route then snaked through Big Sur and Carmel before reaching one of the most revered circuits in the country, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. The field of entrants made two laps in formation on the same track that motorsport’s greatest names have tested their mettle against each other and the infamous set of consecutive turns known as the Corkscrew. Fittingly, another mecca for automotive enthusiasts (and golfers) was the evening’s terminus, Pebble Beach and the tony Inn at Spanish Bay.

The 7:30 a.m. rolling start on June 8 was the earliest of the rally, as another 216 miles were on an already stacked agenda. After taking in the scenery of famed 17-Mile Drive and breakfast at the Beach & Tennis Club at Pebble Beach, it was on to an exclusive viewing of Bruce Canepa’s assemblage of race cars and classic automobiles, some even for sale, guided by the racer himself. Even the most jaded collectors were drooling over a lineup that includes the 1969 Porsche 917K that took the checkered flag at Daytona, the 2,500 hp 1967 Shelby Super Snake Dragster and the 2009 Audi R15, one of the three examples that swept the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2010. Needless to say, there was plenty to discuss over dinner and drinks by the fire at Bodega Bay Lodge later that night.

The final drive day, while only about 98 miles in length, was the most challenging. Despite breathtaking views, drivers couldn’t afford to turn their attention from the road, as hundreds of tight s-turns outlined the way to Napa Valley, finally relenting upon approach to the new Montage Healdsburg, site of the concluding gala dinner and overnight stay.

“This was the first group event for us,” says Jonathan Weizman, “Anybody you sit next to, you find something in common with.” And his wife Anna noted that they felt “an instant connection” with the others. Tom Papadopoulos, a veteran of numerous rally-style programs, brought his daughter Cali as his driving companion and found the event to be “sporting, elegant and with great people who take it a little less seriously and have a really good time.”
Although this was the first rally of its kind for Robb Report, plans are already in the works for the next installment as it becomes a regular part of the curated experiences offered to RR1 club members—those who seek the road less traveled, especially now. After all, wanderlust has no permanent cure.

It wouldn’t be mistaken for the concours lawns at Villa d’Este or Pebble Beach, but for a few brief hours on June 6, an exclusive section of parking lot at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara, presented its own field of automotive dreams. The A-list collection was not only on display for guests of the resort to ogle, but was being prepped and staged for the first leg of Robb Report’s inaugural California Coastal road rally, a roughly 700-mile tour from the Golden State’s American Riviera to its wine mecca of Napa Valley.

Throughout the pandemic, automobiles have served as mobile sanctuaries that keeping us cocooned from the virus while allowing for exploration beyond our four walls. As the shackles of Covid finally loosen, it’s hard to imagine a better way to jump-start socialization than with a curated road trip, of which the only time spent out of the car is with those who are either vaccinated or have just tested negative for the virus. Roughly 50 participants from Robb Report’s RR1 members club seem to agree, converging on the same retreat where Oprah has been known to throw a party or two, and numerous celebs have either tied the knot or at least tied one on.

During yesterday’s arrival and initial welcome session, the program’s 25 exceptional vehicles added an exclamation point to the already striking visual aesthetic of the Mediterranean-themed retreat’s 358 accommodations, all set atop a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The assemblage of cars reflects the nature of the upcoming journey, a picturesque but highly circuitous route that appears to have kept classic cars in their respective garages. In fact, the oldest entry is a 2003 Morgan Plus 8 35th Anniversary Edition, while seven others are various 2021 model-year examples from Bentley, Lamborghini and Porsche—evidence of how quarantine translated to some of the best sales quarters in history for many top-tier marques.

Looking to ride that momentum, rally sponsor Porsche brought the latest Panamera GTS and Cayenne for 30-minute test drives, where attendees followed a driving instructor on loan from the Porsche Experience Center in Carson, Calif. The Panamera GTS, in particular, impressed with handling prowess and throttle response that make it easy to forget it’s not a 911, while the Cayenne’s 7,700-pound towing capacity and up to 541 hp (with the Turbo variant) position that model as Stuttgart’s ultimate utility vehicle.

Car of the Day
Among the sculpted metal on display, one of the most eye-catching was a 1972 Dino 246 GT in its factory-correct Blue Dino Metallizzato paint scheme complemented by an interior dressed in beige leather. The Dino name pays homage to Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari, who helped design a V-6 engine before he died from muscular dystrophy. His father Enzo, founder of the Prancing Horse marque, integrated the power plant in a car he badged in remembrance of his son.

Introduced in 1969, the 246 GT is a steel-bodied, 192 hp model that’s dwarfed by today’s coupes when it comes to proportions, but it’s hard to look away from. According to its owner, the example displayed garnered the 2018 FCA Platinum Award at Monterey’s Concorso Italiano, but has yet to have its mettle tested on an endurance run of this length.

Course Changes
The Bacara’s second-floor rotunda provided the setting for the opening reception and three-course dinner paired with wines from local vintner Brewer-Clifton. Hors d’oeuvres included avocado cilantro gazpacho, tandoori chicken skewers and ahi poke paired with the winery’s 2017 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay and 2015 Pinot Noir from the same appellation.

For the main event, spiced carrot and ginger bisque was allied with a 2020 diatom Chardonnay, then a palate-cleansing Campari sorbet was followed by braised beef short rib paired with Brewer-Clifton’s 2018 Machado Pinot Noir. The menu culminated with a hazelnut espresso torte served with the 2019 Ex Post Facto Syrah. The latter is from the region’s coldest terroir and is sixty days on the skins and stems for a dry expression with flavors of dark cherry and raspberry that hold their own against such a rich desert.

Winemaker Greg Brewer’s approach can be described as focused minimalism. “The ethos of the winery, for all of these projects, is removal of self, really seeing beneath the craft, quieting my voice and not doing anything to distort or alter the message of place,” says Brewer. “Our approach is very reliant upon this landscape where, for 30 years, it has never let me down.”

The Road Ahead
On the morning of June 7, engines start at 9 a.m. PDT as the convoy heads north to scenic Pacific Coast Highway, through Big Sur and Carmel and then takes to a racetrack before arriving at what gearheads and golfers alike view as hallowed ground. It may be the second day of the California Coastal rally’s debut, but it promises many memorable firsts.
