For Mercedes-AMG Petronas, the season finale in Abu Dhabi ended on a controversial note which saw Lewis Hamilton lose the title race to Red Bull Honda's Max Verstappen. Hamilton lost out in a controversial turn of events barely 10 corners left to the end of the race.

During the event, Lewis Hamilton broke his silence on the Abu Dhabi event, which saw F1 race director Michael Masi removed from his position yesterday. Hamilton denied he ever said anything about quitting Formula One despite the controversial end to his 2021 championship campaign. "I never ever said I was going to stop. I love doing what I do, and it is such a privilege working with this large group of people and you feel like you are part of a family. There is nothing quite like it."

Russell, who has replaced Hamilton's old partner Valtteri Bottas, said he is honoured to race alongside Hamilton.

The new Mercedes-AMG F1 livery shows how the bellies are very tapered, almost taking a cue from the design already seen in German cars, during the last few seasons. After two seasons, Mercedes has replaced the black colour to replace with the typical silver, which denotes the Silver Arrow tag to Mercedes. Only the front wings and the bulkheads of the rear one is painted in black.

Even the emerald green colour has taken a backspace, now seen on the flaps of both wings. Broadly, the design of the new Mercedes-AMG livery is a reminder of the ones used by Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg in earlier days.
