OneRepublic singer becomes Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador; B-Class featured in band’s music video

The newest Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador isn’t a race car driver or a movie star; instead, it’s Ryan Tedder, frontman for the American pop rock band OneRepublic.

Mercedes-Benz Kecskemét Plant reaches 250,000-unit production milestone

It seems like only yesterday that the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét, Hungary opened. In fact, it was actually two and a half years ago, and now, the production facility is celebrating another milestone as it rolls off its 250,000th Mercedes-Benz unit: a CLA 45 AMG in polar silver trim that’s headed straight for Japan. According to the plant’s director Thomas Geier, this milestone is incredibly important to the plant, which holds the distinction of being Mercedes-Benz’s youngest facility. He gave due credit to all the employees of the plant, saying that the achievement is only possible thanks to their dedication as well as their capabilities. The Kecskemét plant, which had around 3,400… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton wins Singapore GP, grabs lead in title race from Mercedes teammate

The Singapore Grand Prix could prove to be the turning point in this year’s battle for the drivers’ championship. Lewis Hamilton held off a crowd near the end of the race to claim the victory while grabbing the lead in the standings, thanks largely to his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg failing to finish after many struggles even before the race began. Hamilton managed to get out of a tricky pit stop in lap 51 and avoided a tight battle for the win, especially with two Red Bull Racing cars right in the thick of it. He retakes the lead from Sebastian Vettel by lap 54 thanks to DRS, and eventually cruised to… Continue Reading »

Another front row lockout for Mercedes in 2014 Singapore Grand Prix qualifying

Lewis Hamilton took another pole position at the qualifying session for the 2014 Singapore Grand Prix, clinching his sixth pole of the season and giving Mercedes AMG Petronas its 13th pole in 14 races so far. Joining the Brit on the front row once the race starts tonight is Nico Rosberg, whose qualifying time was only 0.007 seconds short of Hamilton’s. Getting pole position is always a great thing, although it is not a guarantee for victory. It certainly helps, though, especially as Hamilton is still trying to catch Rosberg in the drivers’ championship race. Rosberg leads 238 to 216, with five races left after Singapore. “I lost a lot… Continue Reading »

Hamilton wins Italian Grand Prix; Rosberg 2nd for Mercedes one-two finish

Lewis Hamilton raced well and had great pace throughout the race to win the 2014 Italian Grand Prix, ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg for yet another Mercedes one-two finish. That’s a nice recovery after retiring from the last race, as Hamilton now gets back some lost ground thanks to the points differential. Hamilton cuts Rosberg’s lead in the drivers’ standings by 7 points, and the two are now separated by 22 points – 238 for Rosberg, and 216 for Hamilton with six races left on the calendar. The win gives Hamilton 28 for his F1 career, surpassing Sir Jackie Stewart’s total and putting Hamilton at seventh all-time. In addition, this makes… Continue Reading »

Italian GP: Mercedes’ Hamilton takes pole over Rosberg

Lewis Hamilton wants to bounce back, and what better way than by edging out Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 teammate Nico Rosberg for pole position? Hamilton will start at the head of the pack at the 2014 Italian Grand Prix, leading a Mercedes front row in what should be another tight contest between the two frontrunners. This is the 12th pole position for Mercedes out of the 13 races so far this season, although it’s been a while since Hamilton last sat in P1 to start a race. Rosberg had six out of the last seven pole positions, so it’s nice to see Hamilton get this pole, especially after the incident in Belgium that… Continue Reading »

Mercedes: Rosberg fined and punished for Belgian GP incident

According to an official statement from Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team, Nico Rosberg has been reprimanded for making contact with Lewis Hamilton’s car during the last race in Belgium. The feud between the Mercedes drivers have gone from tolerable to very public and outright disastrous, coming to a head during the Belgian Grand Prix a weekend ago when Rosberg made contact with Hamilton’s car, sending the Brit limping off to the pits thanks to an unfortunate puncture in his rear tyre and to an eventual race retirement. Here is an excerpt from the official, if vague, statement issued by Mercedes, which you can find here in full: Suitable disciplinary measures have been taken… Continue Reading »
