An introduction to Mercedes-Benz:
Mercedes-Benz, or simply Mercedes or ‘Merc’ as they are more commonly known, are a German manufacturer which dates back to 1901. The first Mercedes-Benz vehicle was launched in 1926, by the Daimler-Benz company following a merger between Karl Benz’s company ‘Benz & Cie’ and Gottlieb Daimler’s ‘Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft’.
One of the most popular early Mercedes-Benz models was the 770, which was infamously driven by Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany. The vast majority of the remaining models are owned privately, although a small number have found their way to museums around the world. Like many automotive manufacturers, Mercedes-Benz found themselves focusing more on military products during the war era, with the LG3000 lorry along with two engines used for powering aircraft.
Over the course of their history, Mercedes-Benz have been leading innovators in the field of automotive technology and safety including crumple zones, anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and the airbag.
In November 2019, Daimler AG announced that Mercedes-Benz, up until that point a company marque, would be spun off into a separate wholly owned subsidiary called Mercedes-Benz AG. This new subsidiary now manages the Mercedes-Benz car and van divisions, with HGVs and buses becoming part of Daimler Truck AG.
Mercedes-Benz in motorsport
Mercedes-Benz are steeped in motor racing history. Dating back to the 1930’s, when the ‘Silver Arrows’ were born, until the present day Formula 1 championships, Mercedes have enjoyed the highs and lows of motor racing across the decades.
First racing under the name ‘Mercedes-Benz’ in 1954, the German manufacturer saw immediate success with Juan Manuel Fangio winning the first ever Formula One World Championship. He was joined by a young Stirling Moss in 1955, and between them they won six of the opening nine races. Mercedes-Benz pulled out of the competition later that year following the Le Mans disaster where 83 spectators, as well as French driver Pierre Levegh, were killed following a high speed accident.
Mercedes-Benz returned to Formula One as an engine supplier to Sauber in 1994, before agreeing a deal to provide British team McLaren with engines between 1995 and 2014. They have also supplied the Force India (now Aston Martin) since 2012 and the Williams F1 team since 2014.
The German manufacturers returned with a factory team in 2010, having bought a controlling stake in 2009 World Championship winners BrawnGP. The brackley-based outfit have gone on to win seven consecutive Formula One World Constructors’ Championships from 2014 to 2020, the fourth highest total in Formula One history.
