As a global phenomenon, the chances of getting a career in Formula One must be pretty difficult even if you’re an ace race car driver, but the Mercedes AMG Petronas team has just announced a unique contest to fill an opening to become the team’s YouTube presenter. Aside from an obvious passion for racing and the desire to be an on-air personality, the only real requirement for the job is that he or she must be fluent in both English and German.

To get the team’s attention, all you have to do is create a video showing off your personality as well as your love of Formula One. Whoever gets the job will have behind-the-scenes access to the Mercedes AMG Petronas race team, with job responsibilities that include interviewing drivers and crew.

If this sounds like that you’re interested in, be sure to submit your video by May 19.
