Rosberg Gives Räikkönen Second Place On A Silver (Arrows) Platter

The real battle at the Formula One Bahrain Grand Prix wasn’t for first per se, although if you ask Kimi Räikkönen, he could have made it happen if he had been given more time. No, it was for the rest of the podium. Here’s the flub and subsequent pass that gave Räikkönen second place over Nico Rosberg. » 4/19/15 3:29pm 4/19/15 3:29pm

Lewis Hamilton's Champagne Spray Sparks Dumb International Outrage

The latest calls for Lewis Hamilton to be banned from China over spraying a Formula One grid girl just serve as more proof that you should never, ever listen to anything printed in the Daily Mail. Out of the billions of social issues to raise about the Chinese Grand Prix, Hammy's champagne simply isn't one. » 4/15/15 3:22pm 4/15/15 3:22pm

Mercedes' Feuding Drivers Make For An Awkward Post-Race Press Conference

Mercedes Formula One driver Nico Rosberg claims that teammate Lewis Hamilton slowed him down during the Chinese Grand Prix. Hamilton was instructed to pick up the pace, but claims he had to manage his tires, saying "it's not my job to look after Nico's race." The Hatfields and McCoys have nothing on these two. » 4/12/15 8:43pm 4/12/15 8:43pm

What Do You Want To Know About The Mercedes-Maybach S600?

Somehow someone somewhere thought it was a good idea to give me a new Maybach for a few days. While I’m sitting in the back seat, running my bare feet along the inches-thick carpeted floor mats, trolling Craigslist for a chauffeur that owns the very specific orange plaid tux I demand, I’ve got time for questions.… » 4/08/15 1:56pm 4/08/15 1:56pm

Five Thoughts We Had Hooning the Last ML63 AMG at a Winter Autocross

Say goodbye to the Mercedes ML63. In 2016, it graduates to G-Class, becoming the GLE63, so we took one of the last hopped-up mini Mercs to Lime Rock Park's Winter Autocross see if the off-road Geländewagen badge is deserved. Here are five thoughts we had while hooning the bejesus out of a $114,000 race car… » 3/17/15 2:18pm 3/17/15 2:18pm

Exclusive Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4² Review Off-Road With GTspirit

21

As a European grown up in a narrow street in one of Europe's 16th century inner-cities I consider everything over the size of a BMW X3 a big truck. So you can imagine when I first came eye-to-eye with the Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4² show car I was a little impressed, no, frightened of the thought to drive this monster… » 2/21/15 10:34am 2/21/15 10:34am

Force India Will Test At Barcelona, But Won't Bring Its 2015 Car Yet

Twitter user Jose Manuel Salazar claims that this render of a Formula One race car is, in fact, Force India's 2015 VJM08 car. Is he right, though? We'll find out with the start of the season. While Force India will be letting Pascal Weirlein test their car at Barcelona, it will be in their 2014 VJM07 instead. » 2/15/15 1:36pm 2/15/15 1:36pm

Here's What The First Maybach Mercedes 4x4 Will Probably Look Like

Mustache-Benz boss Dr. Dieter Zetsche has been quoted saying a Mercedes-Maybach SUV is "most likely!" Logic dictates that would basically be a GL, soon to be rebadged as GLS, with a bit of a body stretch and a private-jet interior. Subtle, quick, and decadently comfortable. » 1/31/15 12:05pm 1/31/15 12:05pm

The Mercedes-Benz C450 Is The Swabian Bruiser For Sane Speed Freaks

Mercedes has a slight, wonderful problem on its hands. Its hot AMG models used to be seriously quick, but lately they've crossed into insanity. Take the Mercedes-AMG C63, for instance, with the 504-horse twin-turbo V8 out of the Mercedes-AMG GT, which is just nuts for a small family car. For the slightly more staid… » 1/12/15 6:00pm 1/12/15 6:00pm

This Is Mercedes-Benz's Vision For The Ultimate Future Of Luxury

Ask a dozen people to define "luxury" and you'll get a dozen different answers. Maybe even more than that. But at its core, luxury is about having the means to do what you want, when you want. That's what Mercedes-Benz is attempting to deliver with its fully-autonomous F 015 Luxury in Motion concept. » 1/05/15 11:31pm 1/05/15 11:31pm

Genius Dad Figures Out How To Convince His Kid To Go To Sleep

Let's be honest: "if you never go to sleep, Santa will never come" was about as convincing as "broccoli tastes good" or "you can't take a bunny to school" when you were a kid. One dad on the F1Technical.net forums has figured out the trick, though: make the bed look like a Mercedes W05 Formula One car. » 12/25/14 5:59pm 12/25/14 5:59pm
