LEGO and Mercedes F1 are collaborating on a 564-piece set

It also retains the black livery, which is interesting as there are rumors that the new car could revert to the iconic silver livery in 2022.

LEGO has a long history of working with automotive brands and its latest collaboration is with the most successful F1 team in recent memory – the manufacturer’s 8-time champions, Mercedes. The $29.99 set will include 564 pieces that will be based on the World Championship-winning W12, which measures 4cm high, 19cm long and 7cm wide.

Notably, the W12 is also the only Mercedes of F1’s turbo-hybrid era that hasn’t won a drivers’ world championship. It also retains the black livery which is interesting as there are rumors that the new car could revert to the team’s signature silver livery which gives it its ‘Silver Arrows’ nickname.

You can choose between Bottas and Hamilton

The LEGO set will be available on March 1 in the UK, which is also home to the Mercedes F1 team and its two drivers. The car will be offered with Pirelli rain tyres, interchangeable driver numbers – 44 for Lewis Hamilton and 77 for Valtteri Bottas who joins Alfa Romeo this year, and black and yellow cameras. There will also be a mechanic and driver minifigure in the LEGO pack.

Mercedes is also collaborating on the AMG-Project One hypercar which is under development and will go into production. Lewis Hamilton helped develop the vehicle and also has one up for pre-order.

There is a lot of noise around the return of Lewis Hamilton who, while having a contract, was disappointed with the sport due to the strange and dramatic circumstances in which he lost the 2021 championship to Max Verstappen. There are, however, growing signs that the 37-year-old seven-time world champion will return to F1 and be the main driver for the W13.
