The reigning champions, the current Kings of the 2021 Formula 1 Teams, are in a league of their own. Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team, better known as just Mercedes, have dominated the last 7 seasons of Formula 1. They won the 2020 Formula 1 World Championship by A LANDSLIDE. By a landslide, I mean a 254-point gap to the constructors’ in 2nd place, which were Red Bull. In 2020, Mercedes won the constructors’ championship with 4 races to go in the season, despite the season being shorter than usual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And everyone expects that Mercedes will win the 2021 Championship as well.
Currently, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas are driving for Mercedes. Hamilton has been the drivers’ champion 7 times, and 6 of those were with Mercedes. Hamilton’s current teammate, Bottas, is a competitive driver who regularly challenges Hamilton for race wins, which ensures Mercedes dominance. Bottas and Hamilton are an unbeatable driver pairing, but they’re going to keep getting stronger. Bottas and Hamilton have been teammates for 4 of the last 7 seasons of Mercedes dominance. I think that Mercedes will get even stronger because Bottas is taking the fight to Hamilton more than before, thus increasing the competitiveness of the two drivers, and increasing the chances of Mercedes winning as many races as possible, through one driver or the other.
These last 7 seasons of Mercedes dominance are only recent history. Mercedes first entered Formula 1 in 1954, when German teams were finally allowed to race in Formula 1. They were instantly victorious, with their main driver, Juan Manuel Fangio, winning the 1954 and the 1955 titles. The constructors’ championship hadn’t been created yet, but if it was, Mercedes would’ve surely been successful. However, they didn’t last for long, because in 1955, a Mercedes driver, along with a massive amount of spectators, were killed in a crash at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race (not F1). After this Mercedes, left racing altogether for decades. When they returned to racing, they returned to F1, but only as engine manufacturers. They weren’t a proper team yet.
