Mercedes-Benz is currently involved in Formula One as the owners of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, a Formula One chassis team, based in Brackley, United Kingdom, using a German licence, and of Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains, a Formula One engine manufacturer, based in Brixworth, United Kingdom. Mercedes-Benz had competed in the pre-war European Championship winning three titles and debuted in Formula One in 1954, running a team for two years. The team is also known by their nickname, the "Silver Arrows". After winning their first race at the 1954 French Grand Prix, driver Juan Manuel Fangio won another three Grands Prix to win the 1954 Drivers' Championship and repeated this success in 1955. Despite winning two Drivers' Championships, Mercedes-Benz withdrew from motor racing in response to the 1955 Le Mans disaster and did not return to Formula One until rejoining as an engine supplier in association with Ilmor in 1994.
