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.

The move to bigger wheels and tyres as part of the 2017 rule package slowed pitstops from the start of last season.However, in Shanghai, Mercedes demonstrated that is now back where it was in 2016, despite problems with unsafe releases up and down the pitlane leading to some teams taking a slightly more cautious approach.In China, Bottas went for the undercut on Vettel when he came ...

A month ago very few people would have bet that Mercedes would fail to win any of the opening three races of the Formula 1 season.It's incredibly close in F1 at the moment. The days of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg droning around at the front of the field - basically able to finish one-two unless they broke down or crashed into each other - seem like another lifetime.It's now a ...

On face value, it certainly looks as if things are getting a bit strained within Mercedes, and having two other teams biting at its heels is definitely exposing the team's weaknesses.Over the first three years of its dominance, in reality all that was really required was make sure that Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg didn't knock seven shades out of each other too often. If Mercedes ...

A bold gamble on strategy paid off big time for Red Bull in Shanghai, a quick decision to pit both of its drivers for fresh soft rubber during a safety car intervention mid-way through the Chinese GP netting an unlikely win for Daniel Ricciardo.It could have even been a one-two for the Red Bull outfit had Max Verstappen not lost time with an unsuccessful passing move on Hamilton ...

Ricciardo stormed to an unlikely win in China, making the most of a set fresh of soft-compound rubber in the closing stages thanks to a strategic gamble from his Red Bull crew.It was a spectacular charge too, with impressive moves on Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton, and Sebastian Vettel before an inch-perfect play for the lead down the inside of Bottas into Turn 6 with 12 laps to ...

Hamilton has already labelled his fourth place in Shanghai as a "disaster", admitting that his side of the Mercedes garage underperformed for much of the weekend.Expanding on Hamilton's lack of form, Mercedes team boss Wolff said he felt his star driver wasn't quite on song in China, something he says can happen even to the very best in the business."Like the car, he was maybe not in ...

Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen comfortably locked out the top two positions on the grid with strong form throughout the session in Shanghai – with Mercedes duo Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton nowhere near close enough to properly challenge.Speaking after the session, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff reckoned that his team’s struggles owed more to not getting its tyres into the right ...

Red Bull came into the 2018 season with high hopes after finishing last year strongly, but it is yet to offer a serious threat to the top two teams in the opening races of the season, with reliability woes ruining what was expected to be a strong race for the RB14 last week in Bahrain.“The team has the potential to win races,” Hamilton said of Red Bull. “In testing they looked a lot ...

Bahrain has one of the highest levels of abrasive tarmac of the season. It’s also very tough on brakes with big stops and that means that it’s easy to lock a wheel and flat-spot a front tyre. If you are doing a one-stop race with a long stint, flat-spotting a tyre early in that stint can ruin a strategy. This year we saw several drivers go for the long stint on mediums – Sebastian ...

The Brackley-based outfit spent the middle phase of the Sakhir race convinced that Valtteri Bottas was well-placed to triumph because it appeared that leader Vettel would need to make a second stop.But in the end, Vettel managed to keep his tyres alive just long enough to not need to change them and, by the time Mercedes woke up to the fact it needed to close the gap to the front, it ...

Mercedes had the Bahrain Grand Prix won on lap 21. Well, almost. According to team boss Toto Wolff, there was only a one-in-ten chance of Ferrari winning despite Sebastian Vettel being in the lead. And yet, 36 laps later, Vettel claimed his second consecutive grand prix victory by 0.699s from Valtteri Bottas."I think we had won the race already after coming out on the medium behind ...

Although Sebastian Vettel won the Australian Grand Prix, Hamilton's Mercedes was clearly the faster car in Melbourne, but this weekend at Sakhir the W09 has been no match for the SF71H, with Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen locking out the front row for Ferrari in qualifying.When asked to explain the turnaround in form between the two teams compared to the season opener, Hamilton said: "I ...

Mercedes was outpaced by Ferrari in qualifying in Bahrain, with Valtteri Bottas taking third and Lewis Hamilton fourth, before his five-place grid penalty was applied.Wolff says that the Bahrain track, now acknowledged by Pirelli as the roughest of the season, has not played to the strengths of Mercedes."I always said right from the beginning that this was going to be a season where ...

A Ferrari one-two in Friday practice, Mercedes off the pace and Red Bull nowhere near on the timesheets? On paper, that looks like bad news for Mercedes, especially with Lewis Hamilton having to serve a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change.

Mercedes has gone for a more inboard and, as with the front upright last year, higher pickup point.The pullrod pickup appears to be just below the wishbone pickup, allowing better system stiffness without adding weight.This will also allow Mercedes to move the lower wishbone higher and away from the diffuser upper surface, creating better airflow over the top of the diffuser.This ...

Both Christian Horner and Helmut Marko have suggested that there should be a parc ferme for engine modes, with no changes allowed from qualifying to the race.However Verstappen says that would be unfair, because he believes that Mercedes has simply done a better job than its rivals."Honestly not," he said when asked if he supported a mode parc ferme. "Because ...
