Very Well Done!
In winning his second consecutive Russian Grand Prix™, Lewis Hamilton helped his Mercedes team a great deal to secure their second consecutive FIA Formula One™ World Constructors’ Championship, 60 years after Juan Manuel Fangio clinched his second consecutive Formula One™ title with the marque.
Hamilton and his teammate Nico Rosberg scored all but one of this seasons 15 Pole Positions and all but two race victories with only four races to go to the Championship Final in Abu Dhabi.
Lewis Hamilton said: “When I heard we’d won the title I think I was yelling louder than anyone! I’ve been racing with Mercedes-Benz since I was 13 and have actually never competed with another engine since Formula 3, so the star is in my blood and I’ll keep pushing to put many more stars on that Constructors’ trophy.”
Nico Rosberg said: “It’s been a tough couple of days for me – but being back at the factories and seeing all my colleagues so happy after the Championship win really puts a smile back on my face.
I’ve seen this team grow since the start of the Silver Arrows project in 2010 and the level we’ve got to now, all working together, is unbelievable.
Together, there’s no limit to what we can achieve in the coming years.”
Toto Wolff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport said: “Congratulations to the whole team. We’ve done it one more time and this championship unites everybody together. In our sport, we tend to move on very quickly and concentrate on the next weekend and challenge.
But today, we must all take a minute and think about the words ‘World Champion’. For this year, we can say we were the best in the world and that is something very special indeed.
But none of us is complacent enough to think that this earns us anything for the future. If we want to call ourselves champions again, we will have to work even harder and even better for 2016.”
Our CEO and founder, Christian Seitz said: “Congratulations to Mercedes – they are an incredible team, having dominated this F1™ season so strongly. To win the second title in a row is a great achievement. We are extremely proud that Toto Wolff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport as well as Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and reserve driver Pascal Wehrlein signed our special edition ZOOM charity bottle as the only ones on the golden cap atop – in a true Champion ‘s position.”
Btw.: Pascal Wehrlein will be fighting this coming weekend at Germany’s Hockenheimring against 3 other contenders for the DTM title.
Together with ZOOM Charity, The world of Neuschwansteiner will soon have exciting news about the charity auction of this one-of-a-kind bottle the the logo of our partner ZOOM charity in sparkling Swarowksi crystals.
