PROFILE

MercedesWhen Mercedes announced its return to Formula One as a constructor for the 2010 season, it had done so with the intention of fighting at the front.

Four years later, the 'Silver Arrows' star started shining brightly in the hybrid F1 era with the squad revolutionising the sport.

Such was its dominance that it swept the constructors' and drivers' championship in 2014 and 2015, won 32 of the 38 races, claiming pole in all but two Grands Prix, broke several records and provided some scintillating racing and headline-grabbing storylines from within the camp.

The latest visage of Mercedes came into existence when the team overhauled the all-conquering Brawn team of 2009 although the Mercedes brand had been around in F1 for many years as an engine supplier, and its partnership with McLaren has been noteworthy over the last couple of decades.

The team first came into the limelight when it announced the return of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher in its line-up in 2010. With the old partnership of Ross Brawn and Michael Schumacher, however, Mercedes failed to emulate its own success of the 1950s or that of Ferrari of the early 2000s.

But in 2012, Mercedes clinched its first race win as an independent constructor with Nico Rosberg, and although performances thereafter trailed off, it managed to master the new regulations surrounding V6 engines that were introduced in F1.

Now with Lewis Hamilton, who clinched the drivers' title for the team in 2014 and 2015, in its line-up along with Rosberg and a major management restructuring, Mercedes remains committed to F1 and continues to set its sights back to the glory days of the past.
