Mercedes F1 History

Mercedes F1 History

Michael Schumacher Mercedes W03

They have the name. They have the history. They had Ross Brawn. They had Michael Schumacher. What more could a new team trying to catapult itself to the top of the tree need? Well, a fast car would help.

When Mercedes bought Constructors champions Brawn GP the grid was on alert immediately. The giant German manufactures finally have their own team for the first time since 1955, and an another great driver at the wheel.

Previously it was Juan Manuel Fangio, now it is Michael Schumacher but sadly the trophy cabinet isn’t as full. With the money that has been pumped into the team, the modern day Mercedes can be deemed little else but disappointing, extremely disappointing.

The team made their debut in 1954 with Fangio and Karl Kling at the wheel, the Argentinian legend switched to Mercedes half way through the season from Maserati, and Fangio won their first race with an emphatic 1-2 finish at the French grands prix. Fangio went on to win three more races to become the champion, Mercedes first and his second. The following season he did it again emphatically winning four of the six races and retained the championship.

Mercedes, with Fangio at the wheel, were destined to create a legacy as great as Ferrari’s, but a tragic incident at the 1955 Le Man changed that. Mercedes driver Pierre Levagh and over 80 spectators died and led to the cancellations of many grand’s prix. At the end of the 1955 season Mercedes pulled out of the sport.

Unfortunately Micheal Schumacher was not able use his magic for the same goal as he did with Ferrari and made some succes but not enough. However engine deals for the likes of McLaren and Force India wasn’t enough to whet the appetite and 2010 saw them return to the sport.

After an unsuccessful three years that saw just one victory the team has turned to Lewis Hamilton in a bid to drive them back to the front. A encouraging start to his partnership with Nico Rosberg brought three wins in 2013. But 2014 is a different story. Finally, the Merc is the class of the field and one of the drivers will be World Champion. Mercedes are back at the top. A place they should be fighting for.
