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 success 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.

Mercedes won the drivers and constructors and drivers champions in 2014, 2015 and 2016 with ease. The big change of the power units with 1.6 V6 Turbo engines was Mercedes their breakthrough. Rumours say that the engine of 2014 had more then 100 BPS advantage to the versions of Ferrari and Renault.

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

In the 2016 season they where even more dominant. 19 of the 21 races where won by the Silver Arrows. A tight battle evolved between both Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. Both aces are racing each other their whole life and Hamilton showed his passion was greater then is kindness on the podium when Rosberg won and he came second.

Lewis Hamilton - Mercedes W07 (2)

The W07 was even more dominant then Ferrari's F2004. Mercedes could have one all races. The only grand prix they didn't win where 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 drivers title with this rare Mercedes engine failure.

At the end of 2016 Nico Rosberg was able to win the championship of his teammate Lewis Hamilton. 3 days after Rosberg won the championship, he ended his F1 career to enjoy his life with his wife and baby in Monaco. The Mercedes W08 was a car with a very long wheelbase, which gave it a lot of advantages on the rest of the grid. The 2017 cars looked and were a lot faster then the 2016 editions.

The 2017 season start very different for Mercedes. They didn't win the first race like they did the last 3 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 then they ever did to keep up with Ferrari's pace. Until Azerbaijan Ferrari and Mercedes, Vettel and Hamilton were having fears battles, but during a safety car period Vettel lost his cool and run 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 then Ferrari and could win both titles.

The team kept their dominance until the 2020 season and won a record braking 7 constructors and drivers titles in a row. The next season Red Bull Racing at last had caught up and had the upper hand.
