Mercedes Silver Arrows – Celebrating 100 Grands Prix
As of last weekend, Mercedes Benz ‘Silver Arrows’ have raced in 100 Grands Prix. To celebrate, Mercedes AMG Petronas released a huge collection of images via social media, depicting the long and colorful (well, maybe not literally colorful) history of the team. Below, we’ve included a quick selection of our favorites for you guys to enjoy.
Of course we’re more partial to the early days of Grand Prix racing than we are to the more recent years that Mercedes have been involved in. That being said, it is quite awesome to look at images of modern, high-tech Mercedes Formula 1 machines alongside shots of the brand’s early years prior to F1, and when the sport of Grand Prix racing was still in its infancy.
Take a look at our selection from their gallery below. For the whopping full collection of images as released by Mercedes AMG Petronas, check out their Facebook page.
