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.

Last weekend saw the Mercedes AMG-Petronas Motorsport team gain valuable points in both the drivers' and constructors' championships, with Lewis Hamilton setting a blistering qualifying lap to take pole position and a race win on Sunday. The Singapore Grand Prix is one of the most iconic races in the F1 calendar - but the night schedule makes it especially challenging for the teams. Many of ... ...

Ocon has lost options at Renault and McLaren and Lawrence Stroll’s investment in Racing Point Force India means Lance Stroll is poised to take Ocon’s seat there. Mercedes is also lacking opportunities to give Russell, the Formula 2 championship leader, his F1 debut. While Red Bull invested in a junior team, Toro Rosso, to place its young talents and Ferrari has established a closer ... ...

While rival Ferrari had a quick car at times, it was clear that tyre management - one of Mercedes’ weaknesses in the past - had turned to a strength around the Marina Bay circuit.  Analysis of qualifying laps showed that Mercedes was better able than Ferrari to prevent its tyres overheating in the final sector - so it gained crucial time there. In the race too, Hamilton was able to keep ... ...

The Marina Bay street circuit was expected to favour rivals Ferrari and Red Bull more than Mercedes, but this didn't stop Lewis Hamilton from taking pole and converting it into a convincing win. Mercedes boss Wolff stressed that a bad weekend in Spa had motivated the team to pull out all the stops as it sought to get back to winning form. “It feels like one of the greatest victories ... ...

While praising what he called Hamilton’s “epic” lap Wolff was keen to point that the race team and engine divisions had made progress in recent weeks. “I must really, really take my hat off to the work that was done in the UK, in Brackley and in Brixworth to prepare the car and the engine for this race,” said Wolff. “It was our weakest race track together with Monaco, we were really ... ...

Wehrlein won the 2015 DTM title for the Silver Arrows and was brought into F1 with Mercedes backing, contesting a season each for Manor and Sauber respectively.

Wolff is struggling to find homes for Mercedes juniors Esteban Ocon and George Russell in 2019 as teams are reluctant to hire drivers who are tied to their competition. During the Italian Grand Prix weekend Wolff proposed a third works entry for a rookie driver as a cheaper solution than backing a two-car "junior team," as Red Bull does with Toro Rosso. Third cars have been discussed many ... ...

Mercedes was announced as the title sponsor of next year’s Hockenheim race when the 2019 calendar was revealed, after the German venue concluded a one-year extension with Liberty.

The team had said ahead of the Italian Grand Prix that it would decide after the race whether or not it made sense for Valtteri Bottas to be moved into a support role to help Lewis Hamilton. But with Hamilton opening up his world championship advantage with victory at Monza, on a day when Bottas was able to help his teammate without wrecking his own race, Mercedes is happy to keep things as ... ...

Ocon was a strong contender for a seat at McLaren, and had even had a seat fitting earlier this year as the team pondered a potential mid-season switch for the youngster. But the McLaren talks went quiet when Ocon looked set for a move to Renault instead, only for that option to fall through when the French car manufacturer took Daniel Ricciardo. While Mercedes, which looks after Ocon’s ... ...

The race marks only the third appearance of the pink hypersoft tyre, following Monaco and Canada. However, while at those two events the compound was matched with the supersoft and ultrasoft, Pirelli chose the soft and ultrasoft this time. The same combination will also be used at the following race in Russia. For Singapore Mercedes has taken a conservative route, with both Lewis Hamilton ... ...

The Mercedes mechanics went into the Monza pitlane when Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen made his crucial pitstop from the lead, but Lewis Hamilton did not follow him in. Sky Sports F1 commentator Paul di Resta suggested Mercedes had come out in part to slow Raikkonen’s route to his pit box – which was immediately after that of Mercedes – but Wolff says that there was a genuine chance that ... ...

Ferrari has a slight power advantage at the moment, and its performance has been further boosted by an energy deployment characteristic that allows it to accelerate much better out of corners. That speed edge in the early phase of straights prompted questions from Mercedes earlier this year about the legality of Ferrari’s double battery system, but the FIA has given the Italian team the ... ...

Amid some frustrations about the lack of opportunities he has available for his junior drivers Esteban Ocon, George Russell and Pascal Wehrlein, Wolff has floated the idea of a radical shake-up of the rules. Rather than limiting teams to two cars as things stand currently, Wolff thinks that opening up the possibility for a third car – which had to be driven by a youngster – would be a good ... ...

The German car manufacturers' three youngsters – Esteban Ocon, George Russell and Pascal Wehrlein – are all facing an uncertain future, and Wolff has expressed some frustration with the struggles in securing available cockpits. With Mercedes ruling out the purchase a junior team just to school its young drivers – as Red Bull did with Toro Rosso – Wolff does not know how best to move ... ...

On the back of a difficult 2018 Formula 1 campaign, Williams has been looking at how best it can do things differently in the future to turn its fortunes around. One idea was to expand its partnership with Mercedes beyond just an engine supply, and take its gearbox as well. As well as cost savings, such a move would allow Williams to also focus more of its effort on performance ... ...

Honda will sponsor this year's Suzuka event, while Mercedes will support next year's race at Hockenheim.

Bottas is still waiting for his first win of the season after 13 races, as a variety of setbacks have all but eliminated his own title hopes.

"If the situation is clear ... ...

Sebastian Vettel’s victory in last weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix cut Lewis Hamilton’s lead to 17 points after the German had been thwarted in the previous two races despite Ferrari appearing to have a faster car.  Speaking at the Milan F1 demonstration in the build-up to this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix, Arrivabene said Ferrari must throw the sort of punches it has taken time after ... ...

Sebastian Vettel's triumph at the Belgian Grand Prix left Mercedes in little doubt that its main rivals now have the fastest car in Formula 1, but it has not given up on closing the gap either on the engine or chassis front.

Both drivers share equal status at Mercedes but amid increasing pressure from Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari, the Brackley-based team may be forced to change its stance Bottas is currently 87 points behind Hamilton in the standings with eight races to go – and potentially 200 points still available.

The Force India racer had been expected to be named as Nico Hulkenberg’s teammate, but the plan was abandoned at the last minute when Daniel Ricciardo made himself available soon after the Hungarian GP.

Hamilton holds a 17-point lead over Vettel after the German's victory in last weekend's Belgian Grand Prix, as Ferrari enjoyed superior performance at a race both manufacturers brought engine upgrades. Hamilton said Ferrari's performance is definitely a concern because he and Mercedes are only ahead because they capitalised on Vettel "misfortune" before the summer break. "They've had the ... ...

On the back of Sebastian Vettel's crucial victory in Belgium, on a track where Mercedes has traditionally been strong, Ferrari's title hopes have been reinvigorated and it heads to this weekend's Italian GP as favourite. Although much focus after the race was on the straightline speed advantage that allowed Vettel to blast past Lewis Hamilton on the opening lap, Mercedes think there are a ... ...
