Mercedes AMG Petronas didn’t get to spontaneously celebrate its second consecutive Formula 1 World Constructor’s Championship on Sunday in Sochi, due to a post-race penalty applied to Kimi Raikkonen for his last-lap contact of Valtteri Bottas.
That doesn’t mean the team isn’t fully appreciating the moment, or losing its trademark of being able to share the celebration with its fans and followers.
On Monday morning, Mercedes released a video of behind-the-scenes footage from Brackley, as its staff watched the Russian Grand Prix and then celebrated the championship once Raikkonen’s penalty was confirmed.
Title celebration day occurs on Monday at the headquarters, and the team is posting photos from the event as they happen to Twitter. You can see them below:
