At Mercedes, we’re experts when it comes to motorsports. The Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG) and Benz & Cie companies were among the participants in the first auto race in history, which was held in 1894 on a route between Paris and Rouen. We’ve participated in the Formula 1 races since 1954, and in 2019 we entered the ABB FIA Formula E championship. Some might suppose that this isn’t much of a challenge for us after 125 years of making motorsports history. But the fact is that Formula E is a completely new challenge even for our experienced colleagues.
