Mercedes F1 News and Updates

German manufacturing giant, Mercedes-Benz, first got involved in racing back in the 1930s and 1940s. After the Second World War, they returned in 1954, in what is now known as Formula One. However, they pulled out as a manufacturer after 1955, remaining only as a supplier.

Their exit was a direct response to the 1955 Le Mans Disaster. They would be coaxed back as a constructor, only from 2010 on wards. In the latest Mercedes F1 news, their current drivers are, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.

On-track Achievements

During their first two years in Formula One, there was no Constructor’s championship. It was only introduced from 1958 onwards. However, they did win four races out of a nine-race 1954 calendar. Those wins came at the French Grand Prix, the German Grand Prix, the Swiss Grand Prix and the Spanish Grand Prix.

A year later, they would go on to win five out of seven races. The wins came at Argentina, Belgium, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Italy.

Now, after their return in 2010, there were off to a shaky start, having been away for so long. But since 2013, things have been picking up and the began to dominate from 2014 on wards.

Mercedes’ Sponsors

In the latest Mercedes F1 updates, Mercedes F1’s title partner is Malaysian oil company, Petronas. Other partners include, UBS, Qualcomm, Epson, Bose, Tommy Hilfiger, Monster Energy, Puma and many others.

Charities

The Mercedes team has lent its support to two main charities. In 2015, they chose the Air Ambulance Services and the Muscle Help Foundation.
