What makes this auction particularly significant is that the Mercedes F1 W04 is the only Hamilton-driven Mercedes Formula 1 car available for public purchase. It's a rare chance for collectors and enthusiasts to own a piece of Formula 1 history.
A Legendary Partnership
In 2013, a significant turning point occurred when the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team signed Hamilton, then a one-time world champion with McLaren Racing. This move, influenced by the legendary Niki Lauda, signaled a transformative chapter for both Hamilton and Mercedes. It marked the beginning of an era that would see Mercedes dominate Formula 1, with Hamilton at the helm.
