Although with ‘rivals’ different, Mercedes has once again get to dominate Formula 1 like it did in 2014. Only rarely had problems -usually caused by excessive degradation or lack of understanding thereof-, but in reality the biggest challenge Mercedes this year has been to hold off Hamilton and Rosberg.

Deficit in classification with respect to the pole, expressed in %.

Toto Wolff has had to be used to fund to get the team stood united until the end of the championship, something that ended up getting to harsh penalties, even after choosing both titles.

Lewis Hamilton has completely dominated Nico Rosberg, who, in 2014, yes held the guy until the last moment, but this year has been surpassed on all fronts from the start. The German has finished so unbeatable the season -when there was nothing at stake – does not tarnish the season of Hamilton, has returned to prove that he is a pilot in mature, effective and smart on the track, by which their messages by radio or his style of life might make you believe otherwise.

Rosberg, for his part, seems to have yielded far below their level of last season, although surely this is the responsibility of Hamilton and not of the Nico.

The point-technical

Mercedes has also marked the shift at the technical level, developing the car in an effective and constant, modifying the car in virtually every race. The key to their success lies not only in its phenomenal propellant, but also in a single-seater globally and bright with almost no weak points. Only the treatment of the tires has posed problems, which, however, have been isolated and very specific.
