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.
