Ineos Britannia and Mercedes F1 join forces for America’s Cup challenge

Sir Ben Ainslie’s Ineos Britannia has joined forces with the Mercedes Formula 1 team in their quest to win the next America’s Cup. Ainslie and Ineos hope Mercedes F1’s technology combined with his team’s sailing expertise will produce a boat that can challenge for victory in 2024. Ineos were eliminated in the Challenger Series at this year’s 36th Cup. Ineos boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe said: “What we learned in New Zealand is we had a sailing team capable of winning the America’s Cup but the boat wasn’t good enough. “Bluntly, we don’t have enough time do the America’s Cup boat; we never have enough time to do the race car.
