MERCEDES AMG Petronas kicks off 2015 season in style

MERCEDES kicks off 2015 season in style with a 1-2 finish at the Australian Grand Prix

Mercedes AMG Petronas kicked off the 2015 Formula One season with a bang by securing 1st and 2nd places at the Australian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton took his 34th career victory at Albert Park – his second in Australia and 13th for the Silver Arrows while Nico Rosberg took second position after a race-long chase, finishing just 1.3 seconds shy of his team-mate. This result marks the 30th Formula One victory for the Silver Arrows and both drivers ran a one stop strategy, pitting for prime tyres.

Mercedes-Benz AMG Petronas had a dream season in 2014 by winning the Drivers’ Championship and the Constructors’ Championship with several races remaining in the season. Moreover Lewis and Nico broke many records – individual and team during the 2014 season.

Lewis Hamilton went on to say “It’s quite unbelievable, really, what this team has done. It’s a great feeling to start off the season the way we finished the last and the car is just incredible, so thank you to the team. It was still a tough race, though, as Nico was very quick throughout. It was about managing fuel and also the tyres – trying to see how long we could push them. Anyway, we’ve learned a lot this weekend and there will be a lot of analysis to do before Malaysia. Hopefully we’ll keep finding ways to improve. Just because we had that gap today it doesn’t mean we’ll be cruising. There’s still a long way to go.”
