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've helped.

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

Previously, it was Juan Manuel Fangio, then, it was Michael Schumacher, but sadly the trophy cabinet isn’t as full as on Fangio's day. 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 halfway through the season from Maserati, and Fangio won their first race with an emphatic 1-2 finish at the French Grand 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 retaining the championship.

Mercedes, with Fangio at the wheel, was destined to create a legacy as great as Ferrari’s, but a tragic incident at the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans changed that. Mercedes' driver Pierre Levegh and over 80 spectators died after a horrific crash. At the end of the 1955 season, Mercedes pulled out of the sport.

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

Lewis Hamilton era

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

Mercedes won the drivers' and constructors' championships in 2014, 2015, and 2016 with ease. The big change of the power units with 1.6 V6 Turbo engines was Mercedes' breakthrough. Rumors say that the engine of 2014 had more than 100 BPS advantage over the versions of Ferrari and Renault.

In 2016 the amount of team members grew to 1.400 people. Mercedes showed their skill and was unbeatable in 2015 and 2016. The German car brand won 16 out of 19 races in 2015. The only circuit they always had bad luck back then was the Hungaroring.

In the 2016 season, they were even more dominant. 19 of the 21 races were won by the Silver Arrows. A tight battle evolved between both Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. Both aces were racing each other their whole life and this time it was for the F1 World Championship.

The W07 was even more dominant then Ferrari's F2004. Mercedes could have won every race. The only Grands Prix they didn't win were Spain and Malaysia. In Spain, they didn't because of a collision between both drivers in the first lap. In Malaysia, Hamilton was cruising to the finish with a giant gap between him and Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo when his engine blew up on the finish straight. He also lost his 3rd world driver's title with this rare Mercedes engine failure.

At the end of 2016, Nico Rosberg was able to win the championship over his teammate Lewis Hamilton. Three days after Rosberg won the championship, he ended his F1 career to enjoy his life with his family in Monaco.

Ferrari steps up to challenge Mercedes in 2017 and 2018

The 2017 Mercedes car, the W08, was a car with a very long wheelbase, which gave it a lot of advantages over the rest of the grid, but Ferrari had arguably a more versatile and probably better car. The 2017 cars looked and were a lot faster than the 2016 editions.

Rosberg's replacement at Mercedes was former Williams driver Valtteri Bottas. The Finn went on to win 10 races with the team and finished second in the World Drivers' Championship twice (2019, 2020).

The 2017 season started very differently for Mercedes. They didn't win the first race like they did the previous three seasons. Ferrari won in Melbourne. They had closed the gap to Mercedes and were able to attack like they haven't done for a long time.

Mercedes had to push harder than they ever did to keep up with Ferrari's pace. Until Azerbaijan, Ferrari and Mercedes, Vettel and Hamilton were having fierce battles, but during a Safety Car period, Vettel lost his cool and drove into Hamilton's car. That behaviour wasn't tolerated by the FIA and Vettel got a penalty. After the summer break, Mercedes got back stronger than Ferrari on a couple of tracks and Hamilton delivered, with the team winning both titles.

The 2018 Formula 1 season saw similarities with 2017, as Ferrari again showed up with arguably the strongest car to start the year. Sebastian Vettel led the World Drivers' Championship until the 2018 German Grand Prix, which Hamilton won after starting from P14 on the grid.

Then, Hamilton won in Hungary after taking Pole Position in the wet with a car that wasn't suited for the twisty circuit. Vettel won at Spa-Francorchamps, but could not deliver at Monza, where Hamilton beat the faster Ferraris after a great race with amazing overtaking maneuvers, starting with one on Vettel on the first lap, which saw the German spinning off and losing his chances.

From then on, Hamilton dominated in Singapore after producing one of the greatest qualifying laps in history at a track that wasn't exactly the best for his Mercedes car.

Wolff says in-season Bottas-Russell swap rumours are nonsense

At the end of 2018, Hamilton won his fifth Formula 1 World Championship and Mercedes took its fifth consecutive World Constructors' Championship.

From the end of the 2018 season and the first eight races of 2019, Mercedes won 10 consecutive races, which ranks second in Formula 1 history, behind the 11 consecutive wins taken by McLaren to start the 1988 season.

Dominance in 2019 and 2020 and more records

Hamilton dominated the 2019 and 2020 Formula 1 World Drivers' Championship, taking 22 wins across the two seasons, and tied the record for most championships for a driver in F1 history, with seven. Bottas finished second in those two seasons, also producing consistent results for the German brand.

Hamilton also became the all-time leader in terms of wins after winning the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix and taking the 92nd of his now 103 victories. Mercedes won the World Constructors' Championship consecutively between 2014 and 2020, which was a record (eight consecutive times).

Between 2019 and 2020, Mercedes won 28 races with Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.

Eighth consecutive WCC title in 2021 and a rough start to F1's new era in 2022

After losing the 2021 World Drivers' Championship in controversial circumstances, Mercedes started a new era in 2022 with a new drivers' lineup, with Hamilton alongside British racer George Russell.

However, the team's W13 car is not the class of the field in 2022 and the team continues to fight to try to catch up with the faster Red Bulls and Ferraris.

Russell achieved his first podium for the team at the 2022 Australian Grand Prix, finishing third in a race that was won by Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.
