Mercedes: China double-stack was Wolff's idea

However, with Hamilton and Bottas running close together, if Mercedes had pitted Bottas first to head off the Vettel threat, then there was a risk that he could overtake Hamilton for the lead – which would have been unfair on the race leader. Following a bit of quick thinking, Wolff himself came up with the suggestion of stacking the drivers in the pits, something that is rarely done during full race conditions. After Wolff proposed the idea, team strategist James Vowles confirmed the plan would...

Wolff had "quite a laugh" over reports of Verstappen talks

A report in Germany quoted Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko as saying Wolff "repeatedly" calls five-time grand prix Verstappen and has done so for months. Verstappen joined Red Bull during his first season of car racing in European Formula 3 back in 2014, having opted for that junior programme over Mercedes as he pursued a swift move into F1. The 21-year-old said in the build-up to the Chinese Grand Prix weekend that he was surprised to read the story, and found it quite "funny" because ...

Mercedes-AMG A 35 Sedan: The Nemesis For Audi & BMW Hot Shoes

The Mercedes-AMG A 35 Sedan shows how big things can come in small packages.  Under the hood, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine provides over 300 horsepower.  The individual AMG-tuned drive modes are complimented by a special “RACE-START” feature.  Mercedes-Benz recently dropped one of their typically huge press releases on their (relatively) small A 35 performance sedan. And small though it may be, it is still very much a Mercedes. Given the performance, it’s still very much an AMG. It...

Ferrari and Mercedes the outliers in Baku F1 tyre picks

Like in the earlier grands prix in Australia and China, the tyre range for Baku is made up of the C2, C3 and C4 compounds. But while Ferrari and Mercedes have selected the same respective amount of red-walled C4 soft tyres as they had for Shanghai, the rest of the field opted for a more aggressive selection. Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc will have seven sets of softs available to each, while Mercedes pair Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, who locked out the top two in th...

'It's a pain': Vettel hits out with Ferrari team orders under glare

Sebastian Vettel earned his first podium place of 2019 on Sunday but was hardly jubilant, saying he was not "entirely happy" in his Ferrari and annoyed by questions about team orders. The four-time world champion took third behind the Mercedes pair of Valtteri Bottas and winner Lewis Hamilton at the Chinese Grand Prix, the 1,000th race in Formula One. The German was overtaken by his decade-younger team-mate Charles Leclerc at the start, but Ferrari soon told the Monegasque to let Vettel pass.

The Mercedes Handbuilt By Porsche’s 959 Factory

If someone asks you what sleeper you would have given the choice, most of us would throw out suggestions like an RS2, a V70R or maybe even a Mercury Marauder. When looking at Mercedes’ lineup of the last thirty years, nothing really screams sleeper to you, or does it? Porsche wasn’t doing too well in the late eighties, with their product range being rather aged.

I drove a $273,000 Aston Martin DB 11 Volante and a $168,000 Mercedes-AMG GT C — here's my choice for the best luxury two-door

The Aston Martin DB11 Volante and the Mercedes-AMG GT are powerful GT cars that both have big price tags. Of the two, the DB11 has the much larger price tag — but it also oozes cool. There are few cars on Earth that look this good. The Mercedes-AMG GT C takes the prize, largely because you can get the Aston's V8 at a much lower cost.
