Formula One

The International Eifel Race at the Nürburgring on June 3rd 1934 marked the birth of the Silver Arrows legend. Since that date, world champions and Formula 1 legends, among them, Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss and Michael Schumacher have all driven for Mercedes-Benz in the top echelons of motor racing. The MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Silver Arrows works team is set to continue this tradition in the 2014 Formula 1 season with Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton.

DTM

Since 1988, Mercedes-Benz has fielded works entries in the DTM and is the most successful brand in the history of the DTM, having secured ten drivers’, thirteen team and nine manufacturers’ titles. During more than 25 years of participation in the DTM, many top drivers, including DTM record-breaking champion Bernd Schneider, DTM legend Klaus Ludwig and Formula 1 double world champion Mika Häkkinen have lined up for Mercedes-Benz in the world’s most popular touring car series which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2014.

AMG Customer Sports

Since the introduction of the AMG customer sports programme in 2010, the SLS AMG GT3 has won titles in international championships such as the ADAC GT Masters, the FIA GT3 European Championship and the FIA GT1 World Championship. The racing gullwing has achieved over 110 victories and 16 international titles in more than 22 race series on five continents. In 2013, AMG GT3 Customer Sports Teams won all the major endurance races, including the 12 Hours of Bathurst and the 24 Hours of Dubai, plus events at the Nürburgring, Spa and Barcelona.

The F1 W05

Power Unit: The engine has been formally replaced by the Power Unit, a system
composed of six separate elements: the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE), Motor
Generator Unit-Kinetic (MGU-K), Motor Generator Unit-Heat (MGU-H), the Energy
Store (ES), the Turbocharger (TC) and Control Electronics (CE). The fuel flow rate
of the new ICE must not exceed 100 kg/hour and this maximum rate can only be
achieved above 10,500 rpm.

Energy Recovery Systems (ERS): Energy can still be recovered from and deployed
to the rear axle, however this is now termed MGU-K (for ‘Kinetic’) and is
permitted twice the maximum power of the 2013 motor (120 kW versus 60 kW). It may
recover five times more energy per lap (2 MJ versus 400 kJ) and deploy 10 times as
much (4 MJ) compared to its 2013 equivalent, equating to over 30 seconds per lap
at full power. The rest of the energy is recovered by the MGU-H (for ‘Heat’); an
electrical machine connected to the turbocharger.

Gearbox: Gearboxes now have eight forward ratios – one more than previously –
and the gearbox, including ratios, must now last for six races; one more than the
previous five. Where in past years ratios could be altered to suit individual
circuit layouts, a single set must now be nominated for an entire season.

Minimum Weight: To compensate for the increased weight of the powertrain, the
regulations stipulate a new minimum weight limit for the car of 691 kg; up from
642 kg in 2013. 

Exhaust: Unlike previously where two exhaust tailpipes were used, the 2014
regulations mandate the use of a single, central exit tailpipe through which all
exhaust gases must pass.

Nose Height: The maximum height of the nose has been reduced significantly to
185 mm (down from 550 mm in 2013) to increase driver safety.

Front Wing: In the most obvious visual change for 2014, the maximum permitted
width of the front wing has been reduced from 1800 mm to 1650 mm.

Rear Wing: At the very tail of the car, the lower rear wing has been removed
and the size of the top rear wing ‘box’ has been reduced by around 10% (down from
a maximum height of 220 mm to 200 mm). The DRS slot is also bigger than in 2013.

Brake System: Owing to the increased energy recovery requirements on the rear
axle, the rear brakes may now employ a ‘brake-by-wire’ system. The brake system
must comprise two separate hydraulic circuits for the front and rear wheels
operated by one pedal. The system must be designed so that if a failure occurs in
one circuit, the pedal will still operate the brakes in the other.

Length 4.800 mm
Width 1.800 mm
Height 950 mm
Weight 691 kg
Capacity 1,6 liters
Max fuel flow rate 15.000 U/Min

AMG C-Class

Safety: Since the 2012 season, a carbon fibre monocoque
with roll cage made of high-tensile steel has been used in the DTM.
All safety-related components such as fire extinguishing system and fuel tank are
fully integrated into the monocoque. In addition, each vehicle is equipped with
six crash absorbers, giving the driver additional protection.

Changing gear: DTM cars no longer have gear levers.
Instead, drivers change gear using shift paddles on the steering wheel
as in Formula 1. The shift paddles make it easier for the driver,
enabling him/her to be on the limit a little bit more
when braking for the turns.

Fuel tank: Refuelling during the race has not been permitted
since last season. Consequently, fuel tank capacity has been
increased from 70 to 120 litres.

Engine: In the DTM AMG Mercedes C-Coupé, power is
provided by a 4.0-litre V8 Mercedes-Benz engine producing
500bhp at 7,500rpm. The force developed by the engine is
transmitted through a 6-speed transmission unit
in a transaxle configuration.

Rear wing: The Drag Reduction System is also new for 2013.
As in Formula 1, DRS enables the driver to set the rear wing flatter
from the cockpit, thereby increasing top speed. The system can
be deployed on the main start/finish straight when the car following
is within two seconds of the car in front.

Tyres: All DTM cars use a tyre supplied exclusively by
DTM partner Hankook. Starting in the 2013 season, in addition
to the usual DTM tyre, a special option tyre will be made available
which the driver must use once during the race. This tyre
gives faster lap times straightaway, but degrades relatively quickly.

Setup: As of 2013, cars will be subject to parc fermé regulations
during the interval between qualifying and the race. This means that
permitted work on the vehicles will be strictly regulated.
Supervised by the DMSB, only scheduled maintenance
work may be carried out without incurring a penalty.

Width 1.950 mm
Height 1.210 mm
Wheelbase 2.750 mm
Fuel tank 120 liters
Weight 1.100 kg (with driver)
Capacity 4,0 liters
