This Mercedes AMG W05 (Hybrid) can be named as one of the greatest F1 racing cars ever built by Mercedes. Originally known as the Mercedes F1 W05, the creation of this model was the work done by some of the legendary names - Geoffrey Willis (who designed for Honda’s Mugen Motorsports), Aldo Costa, Mike Elliott and former Williams Racing designer Paddy Allen Lowe, this car was ready on time to participate for the 2014 season.
With a Mercedes-Benz made PU106A Hybrid 1.6 L, 90° - V6 turbocharged engine this car was named W05 as it was the fifth car that Mercedes created since 2010.
Based out of Northamptonshire, UK the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team hired German drivers Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg to drive this car in the 2014 season. Nico Rosberg driving this car (sponsored by Malaysian oil giant Petronas), won the race at the Australian GP with the fastest lap timing. He later repeated this feat with the same car in Malaysia.
