Lewis made a move to the Silver Arrows works team MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS for the 2013 season. "It was the start of a new chapter for me, a new adventure. And when I walked through the doors in Brackley, I was so excited to get down to work," said Lewis about joining the team. "I've never seen a group of people hungrier for success. I've worked with Mercedes-Benz for a very long time now and have learned one thing above all: Mercedes-Benz does not know how to lose."
Lewis quickly grew into his new team, securing his first victory in a works Silver Arrow at the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2013. He started the new Formula One era, running Hybrid Power Units, one year later alongside Nico, driving the F1 W05 Hybrid. The two Silver Arrows drivers won 16 of 19 races, battling for the world title until the very last race. Lewis ultimately clinched the title with a win at the Yas Marina Circuit.
"We've had a great journey," said Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport Toto Wolff at the season finale in Abu Dhabi after Lewis' title win. "Lewis winning his second World Championship makes him one of the greats, and the team bouncing back after 60 years and rewriting the history books, coming back with such a dominant season."
And so again in the 2015 season, Lewis sped from success to success in his Silver Arrow. By winning his third world title and his second in a row in Austin, he has marked the high-point in the long and successful relationship that has existed so far between himself and the three-pointed star – and it's not over yet!
