The 2007 decision that built Mercedes' hybrid empire
Back in 2009 it seemed unthinkable that Mercedes would come to dominate Formula 1 - it didn't even have its own team. But a decision made two years before that bore fruit at the '09 Hungarian GP, and it’s still feeding the marque’s success to this day
Mercedes' tribute to 125 years of motor racing, and its own role in that milestone, last weekend was a gloriously colourful commemoration of a crucial part of history.
Although the German Grand Prix did not go to plan, Mercedes heads to Hungary this weekend knowing an immediate recovery victory is likely, if not a foregone conclusion. That means it has the chance to honour a different anniversary, one that carries a much lower profile, with a win.
