Mercedes Grand Prix

The 2014 Mercedes Season was Mercedes's fifth under its current incarnation, and seventh overall.

The driver line-up remained unchanged from 2013 with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg retaining their seats.

They won all but three Grands Prix (Canada, Hungary and Belgium) on their way to the Constructors' Championship, as they managed 18 pole positions in 19 races. Rosberg won the Pole Position Trophy in Brazil with his 10th pole of the year, but Hamilton became the 2014 Drivers' Champion after Rosberg's engine woes.

Hamilton took the first pole of the season, posting a time of 1:44.231 in Q3 and beating out Red Bull newbie Daniel Ricciardo by 0.317 seconds.

However, the opening race was a disaster for the Briton, with his team-mate Rosberg snatching the lead into turn 1, and Hamilton also having to retire after 2 laps due to engine issues. Rosberg dominated the Grand Prix, winning by 24 seconds from Ricciardo, who would later be disqualified, in what was a horrid weekend for Red Bull, with Sebastian Vettel also having retired from the race. Ricciardo's disqualification promoted McLaren rookie Kevin Magnussen to second.

With Hamilton retiring from the race, it was the first polesitter DNF since the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix, in which he also started from pole.

Malaysian Grand PrixEdit

Hamilton redeemed himself in Malaysia to win from pole, and set the fastest lap while leading every lap of the race, to score his first ever Grand Chelem. This made him the 23rd driver to achieve a Grand Chelem and the seventh Briton to do so. This was also Mercedes' first 1-2 since 1955 as Rosberg finished second.

Bahrain Grand PrixEdit

Hamilton gave Mercedes its third win in as many races after winning again in Bahrain, his second consecutive. However, Rosberg was still leading the championship because he had three podiums to Hamilton's two, and this was Mercedes' second straight 1-2. Mercedes at this point had achieved a hat-trick in all the races, with Rosberg having set pole.

Monaco Grand PrixEdit

Canadian Grand PrixEdit

Mercedes maintained their 100% pole run with Rosberg's third pole of the year.
