Mercedes have added the names of everyone who helped produce their championship-winning W11 to the car’s livery for the final race of the 2020 F1 season.

The revised livery appeared for the first time at the final practice session for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

“We’ll be running a slightly different livery on Saturday and Sunday featuring everyone’s name on the car to honour the huge commitment and determination from everybody in Brixworth and Brackley,” team principal Toto Wolff explained.

“Everyone has pushed hard this year, raising the bar through this massively intense season, and we hope this gesture goes some way in showing the appreciation we have for everyone involved.”

Mercedes confirmed around 2,000 people are credited on the two W11s.

The team has enjoyed a highly successful 2020 campaign. As well as winning the constructors championship for a record-breaking seventh year in a row, Lewis Hamilton continued his run of drivers’ championship titles. From the 16 races so far they have taken 15 pole positions and 13 wins.

  1. Nice gesture.

  2. Once the budget cap comes into effect, half of those names will be fired.

  3. I think not a first for Brackley, BAR-Honda did it in 2004.

    1. BAR’s liveries in 2004 showed what everyone else should do as an option.

  4. I didn’t know Colin Chapman is actually working for the Mercedes team ! (1st picture, line 10)

    1. Hah, interesting one that @tifoso1989, good spot.

  5. I like how they display the number of Championships they have won. It reminds me of the football jerseys. I wonder why the idea is not carried over to F1? It’d be nice to see a standardised star/s on all Championship winning cars.

  6. Nice. Are there former employees listed too? I would include some likely. Is the order random? If yes, than it’s a nice challenge and adventure for one to find oneself. It’s like an advanced advent calendar, you know with the 24 pieces of candy behind the little windows.
