F1: MercedesAMG Matched Ferrari with 5th Straight 2X Championship


MercedesAMG has joined Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) as the only 2 teams to win 5 consecutive championship doubles, the drivers and the constructors, in F1 after Lewis Hamilton’s victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix Sunday.

Mr. Hamilton secured the drivers’ championship at the last race in Mexico, his 4th with MercedesAMG since Y 2014, with Nico Rosberg winning in Y 2016, and his win at Interlagos was enough to wrap up the constructors’ championship for MercedesAMG ahead of Ferrari.

Having dominated since the introduction of the V6 turbo hybrid power units in Y 2014, MercedesAMG has now won 5 drivers’ and constructors’ titles in a row, matching Ferrari’s run from Y’s 2000 to 2004 with Michael Schumacher.

“Honestly, these guys have worked so hard in the last six years, been an incredible journey with them,” Mr. Hamilton said. “This is what everyone works for the whole year. Everyone wakes up, goes to work every day and try to bring the best out of themselves – and it really pulls together as a unit.

“I’ve always said how much of an honor it is to drive for them, and today was like the best style we could do it. We were struggling. We had problems with the engine. Verstappen passed us like we were a sitting duck at one stage. Then obviously he made a mistake and that brought us back into contention.

“So proud of everyone. Every back home, thank you for your continued efforts. To all our sponsors, who without we would not be here powering to a win in Brazil. God bless you.”

Ferrari won 6 straight constructors’ championships and secured the title in Y 1999, but on that occasion it was McLaren’s Mika Hakkinen who took the drivers’ championship.

The last race of this season is on 25 November at Abu Dhabi, tune in.
