Just last season the Mercedes team won the championship in the Formula E electric car racing event, but why did Team Mercedes leave Formula E after the 2022 season? This question also seems to surprise several parties, including the founder and CEO of Formula E, Alejandro Agag.

The announcement of his resignation was made 3 days after the last race in Berlin for the 2021 season, following in the footsteps of Audi and BMW, which had already left Formula E. In the last race, Mercedes driver, Nyck De Vries, managed to lock up position 1 in the driver's standings for the 2021 season.

Then, why did the Mercedes team leave Formula E after the 2022 season? From some information, it is known that the reason they left was to focus on Formula 1 racing which seemed contrary to their emission-free vision in the future.

If you look at the current world automotive trends, many international manufacturers are competing to make electric vehicles, including the German manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz. In fact, they have committed that by 2030 they will only sell electric vehicles.

The CEO of Formula E, Alejandro Agag, also wondered why the Mercedes (Mercedes EQ) team left Formula E but still participates in the Formula 1 world championship. -Motorsports.com

Which is where the 'road jet' race still uses fuel oil (even though it is a hybrid). Alejandro believes that Mercedes wants to enjoy the last days of using fuel before they focus on electric vehicles in 2030.

Why Mercedes Team leave Formula E after the 2022 season?

Then, why did the Mercedes team leave Formula E after the 2022 season? From some information, it is known that the reason they left was to focus on Formula 1 racing which seemed contrary to their emission-free vision in the future.

“In motorsport, Formula E has been a good driver for proving our expertise and establishing our Mercedes-EQ brand, but in the future, we will keep pushing technological progress - especially on the electric drive side - focusing on Formula 1. - Markus Schafer (Mercedes-Benz)

From the statement above, it can be seen that Mercedes seems to be quite satisfied with the performance and results of their team in the Formula E race. The impression just wants to show that they are not only good at fuel-based vehicles, but they are also able to compete in electric vehicle competitions.

When viewed from his vision to sell fully electric vehicles in 2030, this decision looks very contradictory. Moreover, Mercedes-Benz has committed to investing 34 million euros to realize the all-electric road car by 2030.

why does Mercedes keep racing in Formula 1?

Until now, when viewed from the prestige and publications, Formula 1 racing is indeed much better than Formula E. Not to mention, the Formula E series racing is still relatively new when compared to F1 which already has a lot of history and also gave birth to legends of world drivers. .

In addition, Mercedes seems to be more comfortable innovating through technology in Formula 1 rather than using technology in Formula E. In terms of carbon emissions, Formula 1 has also committed to being more environmentally friendly with a net-zero carbon campaign in 2030.

Although there are no plans to use an electric engine yet, F1 is committed to using 100% recyclable fuel in the future.

“It is the arena where we constantly test our technology in the most intense competition the automotive world has to offer - and the three-pointed star hardly shines brighter anywhere else.

“F1 offers rich potential for technology transfer… and our team and the entire series will achieve net-zero status by the end of the decade.” -Mark Schafer.

Not only doing "Branding", but Mercedes in the formula 1 race also looks very healthy in terms of finances. With so many partnerships with many world sponsors, it seems that continuing to race in F1 is a very realistic option. Especially if you can get a profit so that it doesn't burden Mercedes-Benz's finances globally.

Will you return to Formula E in 2030?

Formula E CEO, Alejandro Agag, believes that Mercedes will most likely return to Formula E racing in 2030, once they are fully electric in their commercial vehicles.

“They want to enjoy the last few years of burning fuel and then maybe in 2030 they will go back to electric racing. Probably earlier." -Alejandro.

Alejandro also considers that Mercedes currently just wants to enjoy the last days of using a fuel-oil-powered engine. He assumed that Mercedes wanted to do the "last dance" with the fuel-based technology.

Hopefully, this information about why the Mercedes team left Formula E after the 2022 season is useful. What do you think? Was the Mercedes EQ team's decision the right one?
