The dominance that Mercedes has had in the last era of Formula 1 is indisputable. The Germans hand in hand with Toto Wolff, Lewis Hamilton and even figures like Niki Lauda off the track took the bastion left by Red Bull who had won four consecutive titles with Sebastian Vettel at the main wheel and since 2014 they have won eight championships in constructors and seven drivers (six for Lewis Hamilton and one for Nico Rosberg). However, they are still far from the pinnacle in F1’s history.

At the top it remains Scuderia Ferrari that despite not having won any title for the last 14 years, neither from manufacturers nor drivers. Those of Maranello showed a last dominance with Michael Schumacher at the wheel with whom they conquered five consecutive crowns at the beginning of the new millennium.

On the other hand, the legacy of Frank Williams, who died in 2021, appears with the second most successful squad in the history of the category, last achieved with Canadian Jacques Villeneuve, as well as Britain’s Damon Hill in the second half of the 90s.
