Mercedes-Benz is a German car manufacturer in various Asphalt games.
Mercedes-Benz is a global automobile marque and a division of the German company Daimler AG. The brand is known for luxury vehicles, buses, coaches, and lorries. The headquarters is in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg. The name first appeared in 1926 under Daimler-Benz.
Mercedes-Benz traces its origins to Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft's 1901 Mercedes and Karl Benz's 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen, which is widely regarded as the first gasoline-powered automobile. The slogan for the brand is "the best or nothing". Under Daimler AG, Mercedes-Benz has three subsidiaries: Mercedes-AMG (for high performance vehicles), Mercedes EQ (for electric vehicles), and Mercedes AMG Petronas, the Formula One team. Mercedes first entered Formula One in 1954, and they did so with the staggering W196, driven by Juan Manuel Fangio, at the 1954 French GP. He won, and it was a Mercedes 1-2. But after a tragic accident at Le Mans that year, when dozens of spectators were killed as a car left the track, Mercedes withdrew from racing together. It wasn't until joining forces with the mighty McLaren that Mercedes finally returned to F1 as an engine supplier. Mercedes powered McLaren driver Mika Hakkinen to his first career victory in 1997, but it was the year after, when Hakkinen drove the MP4-19, they first tasted championship success. But after years as an engine supplier, the hunger to return as a full factory outfit was overwhelming. During the 2012 Chinese Grand Prix, Mercedes won as a constructor for the first time since 1955. Since then, Mercedes has become one of the greats, and its subsidiary, Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains, still supplies engines, but for the ROKiT Williams F1 Team and SportPesa Racing Point F1 team. As of the 2019 Russian Grand Prix, one of Mercedes' drivers, Lewis Hamilton, broke Michael Schumacher's record of most Grands Prix led.
