about Mercedes

Mercedes-Benz is currently involved in Formula One as the owners of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, a Formula One chassis team, based in Brackley, United Kingdom, using a German licence, and of Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains, a Formula One engine manufacturer, based in Brixworth, United Kingdom. Mercedes-Benz had competed in the pre-war European Championship winning three titles and debuted in Formula One in 1954, running a team for two years. The team is also known by their nickname, the "Silver Arrows".

After winning their first race at the 1954 French Grand Prix, driver Juan Manuel Fangio won another three Grands Prix to win the 1954 Drivers' Championship and repeated this success in 1955. Despite winning two Drivers' Championships, Mercedes-Benz withdrew from motor racing in response to the 1955 Le Mans disaster and did not return to Formula One until rejoining as an engine supplier in association with Ilmor in 1994.

Mercedes-Benz returned as an engine supplier in 1994 in a partnership with Ilmor, a British independent high-performance autosport engineering company later acquired by Mercedes. In addition to its factory team, Mercedes currently supplies engines to Force India and Williams. The manufacturer has collected more than 100 wins as engine supplier and is ranked fourth in Formula One history. Six Constructors' and seven Drivers' Championships have been won with Mercedes-Benz engines, particularly through a successful 20-year long partnership with McLaren.

Mercedes has become one of the most successful teams in recent Formula One history, having achieved consecutive Drivers' and Constructors' Championships from 2014 to 2017. In 2014, Mercedes managed 11 one-two finishes beating McLaren's 1988 record of 10. The record was extended the following year with 12 one-two finishes. Mercedes also collected 16 victories in 2014 and 2015 apiece breaking McLaren (1988) and Ferrari's (2002, 2004) record of 15. In 2016, they extended this record with 19 wins.

Mercedes news

Ferrari changed both Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen onto Pirelli’s soft compound after just one sighting lap on supersofts at the beginning of Q2, at a point when rain was believed to be imminent. That timing was of the essence was emphasised by Vettel’s momentary indiscretion when the FIA called him in to the weighbridge at pit entry. Vettel and Raikkonen lapped quickly enough to ...

After winning four races on the trot with Hamilton, Mercedes was soundly beaten in the United States Grand Prix and then produced its worst performance of the season in Mexico. The Mercedes pair could not make their tyres last at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, with Hamilton finishing over a minute down on race winner Max Verstappen in fourth and Valtteri Bottas ending up a lap down. Team ...

For the second race in succession, the team did not run the set-up that helps it keep rear tyre temperatures under control, amid talk of potential protests from rivals. Despite Mercedes seeking clarification from the FIA on the design – which was forthcoming ahead of the race in Mexico – F1 teams are awaiting more details from the governing body on what is allowed. In this video ...

Haas driver Romain Grosjean had finished sixth at Monza, but was excluded after Renault submitted a protest regarding his car's floor - which the US-owned team had not modified in response to a technical directive from the FIA. The matter revolved around the requirement to have a 50mm radius at the front of the floor, and ongoing discussions between Haas and FIA representatives about how and ...

Hamilton won four races in a row to put himself on the brink of the championship but Mercedes had problems in the United States and Mexico GPs. He clinched the crown last weekend finishing fourth, the first time he failed to stand on the podium since the Austrian GP at the start of July.  Hamilton said: “I still have work to do. I’ve still got to get back to the factory and rally the ...

Both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas struggled with their tyres at the Mexico City race on Sunday, which left them unable to challenge the Red Bull and Ferrari cars ahead. With those difficulties coming just a week after similar troubles in Austin, when Mercedes did not race its spacer either, it prompted suggestions that the team may have suffered without the extra help from its ...

F1 race director Charlie Whiting's directive will not be aimed specifically at the design used by Mercedes on its rear wheels, where it has deployed cooling holes that some have suggested could have aerodynamic benefits. Mercedes chose not to race the design in the United States Grand Prix, fearing that Ferrari might submit a protest after the race. Read Also: Analysis: How wheel ...

Hamilton started third and passed Daniel Ricciardo off the line, but neither he nor teammate Valtteri Bottas were competitive on race pace as they struggled to make their tyres last. Fourth place was ultimately enough for Hamilton to seal the title, but it marked his worst result since July's Austrian Grand Prix, and he'd crossed the line over a minute and 18 seconds behind race winner Max ...

After Bottas was forced to stop on track in the Saturday morning session, Mercedes had to change his power unit, fitting one that was already in the pool of available components and was raced in Austin. “The failure we have seen on Valtteri’s engine is a failure we haven’t seen for many years,” said Wolff. “You can call it an unusual failure, with mileage where it shouldn’t have ...

Sainz finished third behind the two Red Bulls in both FP1 and FP2, outpacing the Ferrari and Mercedes cars that have normally been out of reach for the Renault RS18. And while the Spaniard described the day as “surprisingly good” for his team, he said the midfield picture suggested Renault hadn't suddenly made a major step forward compared to last weekend's race in Austin. “It's very ...

Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas were uncompetitive by Mercedes' usual standards and wound up seventh and ninth, over a second slower than the pace-setting Red Bull of Max Verstappen.

Mercedes runs a spacer on their rear wheels with small holes and grooves added to reduce the heat flow across between the axle and the wheel. This has been credited as a factor in Mercedes’ recent run of four race wins in a row, and after the Japanese Grand Prix clarification was sought from the FIA’s Technical Department over whether this violated Article 3.8 of F1’s technical ...

Americans love their sport as entertainment and Formula 1 served up a superb Grand Prix in Austin that had the perfect blend of virtuoso driving and intriguing strategy. Like the Grand Prix in Monza, this was one of the best races of the season with close racing, emotion and strategy intrigue, which kept the outcome in doubt until the final lap, with the three podium finishers crossing the line ...

As Mercedes continues to seek answers as to why it struggled to manage its tyre temperatures in the Austin race, it has emerged that the team made last-minute tweaks to a rear wheel rim concept that had been under the spotlight ahead of the weekend. The unique design of the Mercedes rim – which features internal holes to help blow air – has been viewed as one of the contributory factors in ...

Mercedes changed the water pumps on both its cars ahead of the race after identifying problems after qualifying, when the component on Bottas's W09 had a leak and data on Hamilton's car also indicated an issue.

Hamilton started the Austin race on pole with the chance of clinching the 2018 drivers' title early, but lost out to Kimi Raikkonen at the start – and also dropped behind Max Verstappen, who like Raikkonen made a single stop to Hamilton's two.

Sources have revealed that Ferrari approached the FIA asking questions about the rear wheel rim and hub design that its title rival had used in recent races.  In particular, Ferrari wanted to know why Mercedes was able to run with a rim design that featured a collection of holes that appeared similar in many ways to a concept that Red Bull was banned from using at the 2012 Canadian Grand ...

A run of four consecutive victories for Lewis Hamilton has left him 67 points clear of Sebastian Vettel in the drivers' standings, with only four races remaining. If he wins in Austin this weekend, with Vettel no higher than third, then that will be enough for Hamilton to claim his fifth world title. But despite the strong position the team is in, Wolff fears that there is always the ...

Wolff admitted after the Russian Grand Prix that he had distracted chief strategist James Vowles at a critical time, causing the team to make a mistake by not calling Lewis Hamilton into the pits a lap after leader Valtteri Bottas stopped. That helped Sebastian Vettel to get ahead, forcing Hamilton to damage his tyres while battling to get past and then setting up the controversial decision for ...

The new front wing, which is 200mm wider and 25mm deeper and is a more simplistic design, is designed to improve overtaking. A revision to make the brake ducts a more simple design will also be implemented as part of F1's push to improve the racing ahead of a larger regulation overhaul in 2021. Earlier this year, Williams' Paddy Lowe said the incoming change is making it harder for F1 teams ...

There’s a saying among F1 strategists that the faster and more dominant the car, the easier the strategy calls. This is because the margin for error is so large; if you make a mistake the car is fast enough relative to the competition that it is recoverable. The calls made in the tightly-packed midfield are much more finely balanced. The Japanese Grand Prix saw a series of problem ...

Vettel has dropped from leading the title race to trailing Hamilton by 67 points in just seven grands prix, with his rival winning six of those and currently enjoying a four-race victory streak.
