Formel D team now over 10,000 strong

Troisdorf, November 8, 2018. In its 25-year anniversary, Formel D has exceeded the 10,000 employees mark. “Anniversary colleague” Sandra Lopez Moya was surprised with a cake in her first week of work in Stratford upon Avon (UK) together with her new colleagues, arranged by José Luis Estévez (Vice President Western Europe at Formel D) and Neil Davies (Director Operations at Formel D in UK).

Sandra Lopez Moya won’t be forgetting her first day at Formel D any time soon.
