The Mercedes Benz was used in the years 1954 and in the formula 1. Apart from the standing wheels usual single-seaters there was also a streamline variant .

For sports car in the season 1955 the Rennsportwagen Benz 300 SLR was derived from it.

Also after the war one wanted to engine haven with Benz again, although still the participation in international was refused. When test 1951 in Argentina Vorkriegsrennwagen inserted like the Mercedes W154. The W165 from running 1939 with 1,5 compressor engine would fit the current F1-Regeln, proved as in the meantime become outdated.

In the 1952 one had sensational successes the sports car Mercedes Benz 300 SL but with, in principle which was the concept which is based on the one did not want to continue when car running. Since starting 1954 new F1-Regeln should one decided to pausieren 1953 and to in peace a F1-Rennwagen.


The Rudolf UHL skin and Fritz gave 2,500 cm — engine the preference/advantage in relation to the permitted 750 cm small compressor Eight cylinders were in row, whereby two four-cylinder were combined and Kraft in the were removed, in order to an extremely long crankshaft. To much expenditure floated friction losses: The pistons ran in sockets, which were roll-stored, on valve springs in favor of a complex forced (Desmodromik) do without, whereby the became besides number of

When innovation was used a injection, a technology, which was to date otherwise only diesel engines. The principle had satisfactorily in the air war with the Messerschmitt BF 109 and by engine engineers after a over the small car manufacturer back at Daimler Benz to had been brought.

From thereby however no speech can be, an Esso special fuel RD1 was used. Its admitted added is:


25% methanol

23% kerosene with 130

3% acetone

2% nitrobenzene

The remaining 2% not determined until today.

this mixture tank and pipes attacked, these had to be after each employment normal gasoline, in order to corrosion. The eight-cylinder row engine first 260 HP and for the lowering of the emphasis was tilted to the left and transferred

Further technical characteristics Independent suspension with a joint pendulum axle in the drum brakes on the inside turbine cooling. For the lowering of air instead of the usually free wheels with single-seaters a lining was used, the type was called. The type with standing wheels is supplied only later. Also the base was several times With one unloaded weight of 640 kg, 680 kg in the disguised variant the W 196 reaches a top of 280 km/h.

The debut of the new car retarded into the and Juan Manuel Fangio denied a first running of the 1954 on Maserati and collects WM-points. With first runs GP of France with Fangio of its new implement Alfred new the running leader at that of Mercedes Benz, sees a little differently. The engine is scarcely 35 litres per 100 kilometers thirstily than the responsible expected. The tank seizes 185 litres, running is however at 500 km long. Box stops as before the war refueling and tire change are intended. At the night before engineers attach auxiliary at the vehicle.


Mercedes-Benz W196

On 4 July only nine years end of war, the W 196 start for the first with a F1-Rennen, besides with the GP of France. Already in the list Manuel Fangio, in the row, and Karl becomes clear by the shining, flat and silver arrows of Juan a new era began, because the competitors sit on relatively narrow, hochbeinigen constructions. Only the third von Nachwuchsfahrer Hans’s gentleman man is in the middle in the field, since it train only little. man can book with the catching up the fastest round time for precipitates however. To Fangio and hurry on the high-speed course the away and obtain a sensational victory. Only later the national soccer team a as sensational triumph achieves and few hours football world in Switzerland.

In addition, the W196 is considered to its opposite as superior, has problems. the next run in Silverstone the lining not bring advantages, but only The curves can be focused not optimally, damaged the fenders with the to the barrels, which serve as delimitations, and become only

For the run before domestic public on the Fangio receive and sound an variant with free wheels, while gentleman man drive further with the lining. To the annoyance of running new farmer drives sounds than planned, since he to take time out for a box stop due to a gasoline line. Fangio counter and triumphs finally. in Switzerland and in Monza, here with the full lining, triumphs. To the season conclusion in it is enough only to the third the WM-title is however secured.

Also in the year 1955 Manuel Fangio becomes F1-Weltmeister, with victories nearly all running. With the GP in Aintree Stirling Moss can a victory for Mercedes, after probably left the precedence to him home running. Running in proves however as failure, the W196 failed and Hans’s man besides heavily had an accident.

Sports car Benz 300 SLR

For the 1955 again sports car world championship was from the W196 a sports car the Mercedes Benz 300 SLR .

Also with gasoline so an achievement from 300 HP stood to the won 1,000 km on the and Stirling as well as front seat Denis Jenkinson the Mille 24-Stunden-Rennen von Le Mans came it in in the early evening 11 of June for the tragic accident of engine history. The French Mercedes Pierre Levegh collided a slower vehicle and hurled the spectator quantity. Beside Levegh died 81 spectators. The team withdrew the remaining SLR to it. end of the yearly 1955 nevertheless the car world championship became with a SLR victory with the Florio.

1955 were sketched by the engineer at that time Dr. UHL skin on basis of the W196 a by only one copy was built. UHL used the wing doors one before of the presented Mercedes W198. This Uhlenhaut had the achievement of a then usual with 25 HP and was with a maximum of 290 km/h the fastest vehicle road permission at all. It UHL skin as official vehicle for the for the work, for the annoyance of its neighbours, were waked early in the by undamped sounds of the exhaust


After the W196 two F1-Fahrerweltmeisterschaften (the F1-Konstrukteursweltmeisterschaft did not it at that time yet) and the new car world championship everything had which gave to win it (except in and in Le Mans), withdrew themselves the as already before planned racing, in order to concentrate to the development.

The W196 is considered as milestone in the haven, which becomes arrows often as superior or designated. It is however difficult to which was to be owed portion of of it Fangio, which achieved 9 of the 10 of Mercedes in 14 government inspection Without or against Fangio surely clearly less would have had. Lancia gave up after the of Alberto Ascari completely and the promising D50 over at Ferrari.

The demonstrated by the Mercedes Benz repeatedly during demonstration are all together with the three-litre of the SLR equipped, since this is with normal gasoline and not the and mixture injurious to health of the does not need.
