Alex Powell Big And Large With Formula 1

Alex Powell has created history becoming the first Jamaican to sign with a Formula 1 team, the pinnacle of motorsport worldwide.

Mercedes-AMG F1 made the official announcement earlier today when they introduced Alex Powell and his former Energy Corse karting teammate Kimi Antonelli as the two youngest members of the Mercedes junior programme.

“It’s an extremely proud moment for the entire Caribbean and he’s the first Caribbean driver ever to be signed, and the youngest” said John Powell. “Thank you so much for your support.”

Garden Parish Sports congratulates Alex Powell for this historic achievement, and wish him good luck for a safe and successful career.
