World Championship Celebrations at Brackley and Brixworth


After a dramatic, suspense-filled Sunday afternoon in Sochi, the team's factories in Brixworth and Brackley were filled with scenes of celebration today, as staff at both sites marked a landmark moment in Mercedes-Benz motorsport history.
A second consecutive FIA Formula One World Constructors' Championship for the Silver Arrows sees a new chapter written in the long and successful racing heritage of the three-pointed star - 60 years after Juan Manuel Fangio clinched his second consecutive Formula One title with the marque.
With 12 wins, 29 podium finishes, 14 pole positions and 9 fastest laps from 15 races, the Mercedes-Benz PU106B Hybrid Power Unit has taken 60% of all available World Championship points thus far in 2015, leading 79% of racing laps in the process. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz F1 W06 Hybrid has taken 35% of points available, leading 77% of racing laps.
To mark this historic achievement, race drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg joined the team's senior management at Brixworth and Brackley - passing on their congratulations and words of appreciation to colleagues at both sites and joining in the celebrations.
