Mercedes Unveils A Special Formula 1 German Grand Prix White Livery To Celebrate 125 Years Of Motor Racing



The Mercedes pair in this weekend’s Formula 1 German Grand Prix at Hockenheim will look a little different. The team has revealed a special livery that Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas’s W10s will be decked out in. The color scheme is to commemorate 125 years of motorsport, as the Paris-Rouen Trial, which took place on July 22 1894, is considered the very first mass-entry competitive motorsport event.

The back half of the F1 Mercedes looks the same as normal; yet the front section will this time be white. This reflects the—almost certainly apocryphal—tale about how the ‘Silver Arrows’ marque started running its iconic silver color. The traditional paint job for German racing cars used to be white, and when Mercedes debuted its W25 in the Eifelrennen race in June 1934 it, according to legend, found the new car was slightly above the race’s 750kg maximum weight.
