The 2022 Formula 1 Season is Back!
The 2022 Formula 1 racing season began at the Bahrain International Circuit in mid-March with a podium finish (P3) for seven‑time World Champion Lewis Hamilton and a P4 finish for the newest Mercedes‑AMG® Petronas Formula 1 Team member, British driver George Russell. Making his Formula 1 debut back in 2019, Russell got his start in karting at age seven and aims to become the next World Champion. Further changes have taken place with new regulations this season and the launch of our new Mercedes‑AMG® W13 F1 E Performance.

An Iconic Farewell
A Tribute to the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR
This is the Mercedes‑Benz 300 SLR “722,” also known as the “Silver Arrow.” It was the winning car of the 1955 Mille Miglia road race and focus of the short film The Last Blast. At the helm is lifelong Mercedes‑Benz mechanic, Gert Straub, who maintained this vehicle for over 40 years. But this story isn’t just about a car — it’s about the man who originally drove it. Sir Stirling Moss (1929‑2020) was the first and only British racing driver to not only win Italy’s famed 1,000‑mile Mille Miglia race but to set the record time — unbroken even today. Moss raced from 1948 to 1962, winning 212 races in that time. In a 2015 interview, he described the 300 SLR as “the greatest sports car ever built by anybody, any time.” With just one chance to take their shot, filmmakers captured the final ride of the “722” before returning it to its final home at the Mercedes‑Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, where it is now on view for millions to see.
