GIF GIF via YouTubeThe best things from the German Grand Prix were the oldest.Advertisement Mercedes put a few Formula One drivers in their classic Grand Prix cars, and watching them try to wrestle these beautiful old beasts into submission in the wet is the most wonderful thing you’ll watch all week.Drivers of the modern Mercedes-powered Formula One machines—Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg, Force India driver Nico Hülkenberg and Manor Racing driver Pascal Wehrlein—all got a shot in magnificent old racing machines on the Hockenheimring. Here we see a rare display of outright giddiness from the most stereotypically unemotional group of people on the planet: German F1 drivers. Rosberg in particular got to step into his hero Mika Häkkinen’s footsteps by taking the championship-winning 1998 McLaren MP4/13 for a spin.

Young driver Pascal Wehrlein probably doesn’t see too many manual transmissions in race cars anymore, so for him, coping with the 1954 Mercedes-Benz W 196 R’s old-fashioned shifter knob provided a significant challenge.At least he got a windshield, though. Nico Hülkenberg’s ride was almost entirely out in the open. Best of all is the onboard from the 1934 Mercedes-Benz W25. While Hülkenberg said he felt as if he was sitting outside with such an open cockpit and no seat belt, he had no qualms about getting the car a bit sideways once it was up to speed.

Its designer, Robin Herd, was an aerospace engineer that worked on the Concorde. He was recruited by McLaren to build race cars and used his aerospace know-how to create something light and fast. The chassis of this car is constructed of Mallite, a composite of balsa wood sandwiched between two sheets aluminum — the same material was used in the Concorde. It gave the car a stiffer chassis and an edge over other competitors in the race. Powering the M2B is a 4.0-liter Ford Indy Car engine that had to be downsized to a 3.0-liter to meet F1 regulations.
