HWA Team

HWA Team, also known as HWA RACELAB, is the auto racing team of HWA AG, a German company based in Affalterbach, that also develops and builds vehicles and components for Mercedes-AMG.

HWA was responsible for managing the AMG Mercedes team in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM). HWA AG was founded in 1999, and takes its name from Hans-Werner Aufrecht, who established AMG in 1967. Towards the end of 1998 Aufrecht sold a majority interest in AMG to DaimlerChrysler AG. As part of the process, the motor racing department and parts of the customised vehicles construction business were spun off and transferred to HWA AG.[1]

It was announced on 9 May 2018 that HWA will join Formula E for the 2018-19 season. [2] Their drivers will be Gary Paffett[3], their reigning DTM champion[4] and former McLaren Formula One driver Stoffel Vandoorne.[5] For the 2019-20 season, Mercedes joined Formula E in an official capacity by taking over the HWA entry and renaming it to Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team.

In October 2018, HWA was named as one of ten teams that would make up the grid for the inaugural season of the newly rebranded FIA Formula 3 Championship.[6] In January 2019, the team entered into a partnership with Arden International for the FIA Formula 2 Championship.[7] On 16 October 2019 it was announced that HWA would take over Arden's entry completely for the 2020 Season following their withdrawal.[8] The following month, the team named incumbent Arden driver Artem Markelov as their first driver.[9]

On 13 September 2020, HWA were mistakenly identified as Lewis Hamilton's team for a fastest lap graphic during the Formula 1 Tuscan Grand Prix.
