On This Day: Mercedes Launch F1 Team in 2010

January 25, 2010 – the day the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One team was launched.

On this day 14 years ago, we unveiled our livery for the 2010 season under the Mercedes GP PETRONAS Formula One Team banner, with seven-time champion Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg there for the announcement.

With the cars dressed in the traditional silver colours of the Mercedes-Benz, we re-entered the world of Grand Prix racing for the first time as a works team since 1955.

To mark the anniversary, take a look back through some of the best images from the day and see if you can spot any familiar faces…
