The Mercedes F1 car, the W04 driven by the present World Champion Lewis Hamilton during his entry with Mercedes-AMG Petronas in 2013, made an appearance in the 73rd Members’ Meeting held at Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit. The race car didn’t only show off its amazing architecture, but it also competed against its fellow Mercedes cars in a handicap race. The Mercedes F1 car was pitted against the Mercedes-Benz W190 300 SEL AMG, also known as the “Red Pig”. The classic auto is popular for finishing second in the 24 Hours of Spa back in 1971.

Lewis Hamilton Sails Smoothly to the Finish in F1 Australian GP

Being a Formula One World Champion is hard because it is coupled with high expectations. Thankfully, Lewis Hamilton didn’t disappoint his legion of fans as he won the 2015 F1 Australian Grand Prix in a dominating fashion. The race saw Mercedes-AMG Petronas assert itself again as the most superior team on the track. Next to Hamilton was his teammate, Nico Rosberg, giving their team a one-two finish once more—something that we have seen numerous times in the 2014 season. It should be noted though that Hamilton won with a time of 1:31:54.067. That was by 1 minute and 36 seconds ahead of Rosberg. Sebastian Vettel also rebounded with a podium finish in his debut… Continue Reading »

New season, more of the same. That’s how it looked — and they made it look easy — for the Mercedes team at the opening of the 2015 Formula One season in Australia. Lewis Hamilton took the race win ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg for another Mercedes one-two finish, showing the world that the team-to-beat has not changed. Sebastian Vettel made his debut for the Ferrari team in grand fashion, taking the third spot on the podium after fending off a relentless Felipe Massa. Hamilton and Rosberg were all praises for the team on the radio after clinching first and second, respectively. “Great work, guys. Really awesome car,” said Rosberg. The race was marred… Continue Reading »

Lewis Hamilton Wants to Spend His Whole F1 Career with Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton indicated his intention to sign a new contract with his current team, Mercedes-AMG Petronas. He also said that he is looking to end his Formula One career with the group. Hamilton’s existing three-year contract with Mercedes is set to end this season. Talks for its renewal already started last year. However, the management of his team decided to hold off the negotiations as the 2014 season neared its end to let the driver concentrate on winning the coveted F1 Constructors’ Championship for his team and F1 World Championship for himself. According to The Guardian, Hamilton stated in an interview that his camp is already in the final stages… Continue Reading »

Formula One Speed Trap Records in Jerez Showed Mercedes was the Fastest

Ferrari stole the show last week during the Formula One testing in Jerez. Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel grabbed headlines for logging the quickest finish in three of the four days of tests in Spain. Another Ferrari-powered car driven by Sauber’s Felipe Nasr also recorded the fastest time on one of the mentioned days. So, will this signal the end of the dominance of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team, and bring back Ferrari to its former glory? Not likely. Ferrari might have gained significant improvements in its power unit this season, but teams with Mercedes engines remain as forces to be reckoned with. This is particularly true with the 2014 Constructors’ Champion. According… Continue Reading »

Mercedes to unveil 2015 F1 car on February 1; could come with 2015-spec F1 power unit after all

While there has been speculation that Mercedes could simply use the superbly designed 2014 power unit for the first few races of the 2015 season and just upgrade it through the course of the season given the new rulings handed out by the FIA on engine development, new reports have surfaced that say those rumors are not true and that Mercedes is already hard at work to bring a fresh power unit by the first test at Jerez on February 1. The Jerez test will also be an opportunity to showcase the new car for 2015, the F1 W06 Hybrid. We will be seeing Nico Rosberg at the wheel on the… Continue Reading »

Mercedes could start 2015 season with old power unit

If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. Well, that, plus the development of the something new could still be under way. That’s how things stand for the defending Formula One constructors champion Mercedes AMG Petronas, who is reportedly set to use its 2014 power unit through the first four races of the 2015 season. Engine suppliers Mercedes, Renault, and Ferrari were recently allowed by the FIA to conduct ongoing development for the power units throughout the 2015 season, allowing for up to a 48 percent change between last year’s designs to the final one for 2015. The percentage is based on ‘tokens’ assigned to specific parts within the power unit. It… Continue Reading »
