Donington (UK), this Grand Prix is not part of the official championship.
At that time, the Formula One championship had not been created yet. There were Grand Prix and European Drivers' Championship, won in 1937 by Rudolf Caracciola, on his Mercedes-Benz, identical to this one.
The nickname "Silver Arrows" was shared between two teams, Mercedes-Benz and Auto-Union.
But it must be said that in this period, in the 1930s, the public subsidies given to promote the glory of the German Reich allowed these two teams to dominate the period 1935-1939 by winning almost all the Grands Prix.
It is none the less true that to take off at Donington with such machines, it was necessary to have some "guts", such as Manfred von Brauchitsch. With his Mercedes-Benz W125, he will finish in 2nd position of this Grand Prix, behind Bernd Rosemeyer and his Auto-Union.
