The competition was tough, but Mercedes emerged victorious in the battle for the 2018 Laureus Awards 'Team of the Year' gong on Tuesday evening.
Six teams were nominated for the award. Alongside Mercedes were the French Davis Cup Tennis squad, Champions League winners Real Madrid, NBA Champions Golden State Warriors, Super Bowl victors New England Patriots and the New Zealand America's Cup team.
A panel of leading sports editors, writers and broadcasters came up with the nominations shortlist, and the winner was selected by the Laureus World Sports Academy.
It was the fourth consecutive year Mercedes had been nominated for the award, but this is the team's first time winning it - a further celebration of its 2017 Championship success.
This is only the third time in the 'Team of the Year' award's 19-year history it has been won by a Formula One team, following Renault's victory in 2006 and Brawn GP's in 2010.
Team Principal and CEO Toto Wolff was in attendance at the ceremony in Monaco and took to the stage to collect the trophy.
