IWC Schaffhausen - Historic title double for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport

IWC Schaffhausen Historic title double for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport

Lewis Hamilton is crowned FIA Formula One™ Drivers’ World Champion and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport wins the Constructors’ title.

IWC Schaffhausen congratulates long-standing partner Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and brand ambassadors Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas on yet another stellar Formula One™ season. IWC has been the “Official Engineering Partner” of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport since 2013. 

At last weekend’s United States Grand Prix, Hamilton secured his sixth FIA Formula One™ Drivers’ World Championship. The race result at the Circuit of The Americas places the Briton safely beyond the reach of all his competitors, with another two rounds still to go. Hamilton was previously crowned champion in 2008, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018. 

Just a few weeks ago, at the Japanese Grand Prix, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport clinched the FIA Formula One™ Constructors’ World Championship. Hamilton’s success in Austin makes Mercedes the first team in the history of Formula One racing to score six successive title doubles.

Proving just how imperious Mercedes - and their drivers - have been in 2019, Hamilton’s team mate Valtteri Bottas was the only other person in the running for the drivers’ title on Sunday.
