  1. Are Mercedes going to give their drivers a run in their old cars every year at the Nurburgring? Sure, they are having fun (although I don’t know how slow they are going) and they remind us of their legacy, but what’s the point, apart from these couple of pictures?

    1. The point is to let their drivers have fun, remind us of the team’s legacy and also to advertise Mercedes-Benz cars!

    2. The same point as Mercedes rolling out these cars at Goodwood next week too, most likely being driven by the same drivers- and the same with any other team that has decent heritage.

      1. @fixy, I particularly like this one:
        with the old Nurburg in the background. It reminds me of a tweet by Mark Webber some time ago (although I can’t find it anymore) of a picture of Senna at Spa in 1988, something along the lines of “proper car, proper track, proper tyres”.

  2. “These tyres are much better”, says Lewis.

  3. Modern helmets on old cars looks really strange

  4. Wow I never usually look at the pictures but I have to say that the pictures of the old Mercedes are just amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Alonso should really get rid of the beard
