Mercedes F1 W05 Hybrid Lewis Hamilton (2014)

Limited Edition

The MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team unveiled the F1 W05, its 2014 challenger, at the Circuito de Jerez in southern Spain. Ahead of the first morning of official winter testing, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton took the wraps off the first all-new Silver Arrow to hit the track since 1954. Designed from the ground up as an integrated project between the Mercedes-Benz teams based at Brackley and Brixworth, this new car marks an historic milestone in a landmark year when Mercedes-Benz celebrates 120 years of Motorsport and the 80th anniversary of the Silver Arrows.

Lewis Hamilton began his racing career in karting in 1993 at the age of 8 and quickly began winning races and Cadet class championships. Hamilton continued his progress in Formula A and became European Champion in 2000 with maximum points. His team mate was Nico Rosberg who would later drive for the Williams and Mercedes teams in Formula One; they would later team up again for Mercedes in 2013. In his first season in Formula One, Hamilton set numerous records, while finishing second in the 2007 Formula One Championship, just one point behind Kimi Räikkönen.

He won the World Championship the following season. He is the only driver on the current grid to have won at least one race in each season he has competed in to date, with McLaren from 2007 until 2012, and with Mercedes since 2013. Mercedes won the Formula One Constructors' Championship in 2014 and Lewis Hamilton drove the No.44 car home to take a Championship win with eleven 1st place finishes and, excepting retirements, was always on the podium.

Lovely motor.

Really happy with the Rosberg model, now I've managed to get Hamiltons car as well! Now it's really happy days.... Both cars are excellent, well worth the wait.

Superb F1 Car

It was a long wait for preorder. But I don't mind if the wait is worth it! It certainly was. Scalextric has a winner here! One word - Superb. The detail is excellent. I am very pleased with it and it runs really well out the box.

This model is not digital out the box, but it will be possible to make the model digital by simply adding the C8516 Easy-fit Chip

Plug&play yes
