Mercedes have dominated F1 in recent years so we take a look back at their success

 

Since the introduction of the turbo-hybrid era in Formula 1 Mercedes have become an unstoppable force, with main rivals Ferrari and Red Bull struggling to keep up the pace. The team saw success in the golden age of motorsport with driver Juan Manuel Fangio, but retired from the sport in 1955. The Silver arrows did not return until 2010 when they began their climb to the top with drivers Nico Rosberg and seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher. 

Rosberg earned a pole position at the 2012 Chinese Grand Prix and went on to win the race, their first in 57 years as a works team. Towards the end of the 2012 season, the team announced that they had signed Lewis Hamilton to partner Nico Rosberg. Race victories throughout the season saw them take second place in the constructor's championship finishing just 6 points ahead of Ferrari.

2014 saw the team win the constructor's championship beating Red Bull by a massive 296 points and driver Lewis Hamilton took his second drivers championship. Their dominance has continued since then, winning the constructor's championship every year since. After winning the championship in 2016 Nico Rosberg retired and was replaced by Valtteri Bottas for the 2017 season. By the end of 2018 Mercedes had achieved five constructor titles in a row, only the second team in F1 history to do this after Ferrari.

Following the Japanese GP at Suzuka, where intense weather conditions forced qualifying to be pushed back to race day, Mercedes managed to secure their sixth constructor's title with a race win from Valtteri Bottas. The 2019 season can now only be won by a Mercedes driver, meaning they have a sixth straight double championship, the first team in F1 to do this.
