Reflections with... Nigel Roebuck

Why Mercedes is the works

The backstory behind the three-pointed star’s dominance in Formula 1 is a fascinating one – and will make uncomfortable reading for its rivals at Red Bull, Ferrari and McLaren For Mercedes there was a nice historical thread to its early dominance of F1 this year.

Keke Rosberg’s Cosworth-powered FW08 was catching Alain Prost’s slowing Renault, but the laps were running out and it was going to be close. As well as that, there appeared the...
