Where Are Mercedes F1 Engines Made?

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Mercedes Formula One team has been the most dominating team since 2014. The reason for their command on the track takes us to Brixworth, where the powerful engine is manufactured which sees it rule the grid.

The history of the iconic factory in Brixworth can be tracked back to 1984, and the foundation was led by Paul Morgan and Mario Illien. And, Roger Penske brought in the funding, which turned out to be fruitful for the years to come.

Ever since the hybrid era was introduced, the team at Brixworth stepped up their game. The team won both the driver’s championship and the constructor’s championship since 2014, and hope to do the same this year as well.

As years went by, the Silver Arrows have expanded to support their own team on the grid and help out rivals. In the 2021 season, Mercedes provides power units to Williams, McLaren, and Aston Martin.
