Journey into the past.
Lewis shakes his head in disbelief. “That’s just crazy,” he says, looking over the Silver Arrow from the 30s in front of him. “Really crazy,” he says it again. Lewis is trying in vain to find the seat belt, crash protection features and speedo on the classic car. His first official appearance as a Silver Arrows works driver at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart early in 2013 was literally a journey into the past and also a little bit of a new beginning – both for him and his team. The scene speaks for itself: The career of three-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton is connected to Mercedes-Benz in a very special way. Mercedes has supported the British driver since the early days of his career.
“I've been racing with Mercedes since I was 13 and have actually never competed with another engine in Formula One,” said Lewis. “The star is in my blood, and I will keep pushing to ensure that we can secure more successes together in the future.”
