Immediately before WWII,GP scenes dominated by Mercedes Benz.
W125 was the most succesful machine, a brilliant performance was shown by Ace driver Rudi Caracciora.
Only Autounion P-Wargen(TypeD) or fantastic great Italian driver Tazio Nuvorali registed the Silver Arrow.
The battle between Caracciola & Nuvorali is similar to Senna & Mansell in 1992.
'36 winner Rudi was called "Regnen Meister = Rain Master"same as Senna.
'37 winner Von Brauchitsch is the 2nd driver.He made the Neubauer=Team Director mad to run disregarding the team order.
History repeats itself.
Hey,Lewis!What Ron says need not be heard!

A car found rusting and abandoned in a warehouse has turned out to be an iconic 1950s Formula One car worth over £5 million.
The 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196 was driven to victory by the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio in the 1954 Formula One World Championship, and has been described by auction house Bonhams as "the most important grand prix racing car" of all time.
Yet incredibly, the car - which is expected to fetch over £5m when it goes under the hammer at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July - lay in a warehouse and "largely forgotten about" for 30 years before being discovered, according to Bonhams boss Robert Brooks.
The W196 brought in many new features which helped propel Argentina superstar Fangio to the second of his five F1 titles - including fuel injection, independent suspension, a super-lightweight bodyshell and revolutionary inboard-mounted brakes.
"The first time I saw this car I needed oxygen. It's landmark technology and it was driven by a landmark driver," said racing historian Doug Nye, who said that the car's relatively poor condition was actually a plus point.
"Some people think it looks grotty - that's not the point - the really rare cars today are the unrestored ones," he added.

Sculptures made of scrap metal, life-size and unique detail. Whether animals, cars and characters from the film industry, an interesting experience, inviting you to marvel. "To create art from scrap metal or used automobile, motorcycle and truck parts" of an idea became a reality and since then we have hundreds of sculptures, mostly in 1:1 or greater, in a detailed manual work artfully welded together.
Each sculpture is unique worldwide and is made of thousands of individual parts. Our sculptures are in Europe to the public at various events such as the "Harley Days", presented to the public. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Since then, the "Giants of Justice" in Germany, USA, Japan, and even in Arab countries have found a variety of lovers.
