Mercedes won its first F1 constructors' championship thanks to Lewis Hamilton's victory in the Russian Grand Prix.

Hamilton led home team-mate Nico Rosberg to secure the team's ninth one-two of a dominant season. The result was enough to give Mercedes an unassailable lead over previous champions Red Bull with three races and double points in Abu Dhabi still remaining.

Mercedes has taken full advantage of the 2014 regulations to dominate the season, with its total of 522 points leaving it 190 points clear of Red Bull after 16 rounds. Executive director (business) Toto Wolff said the achievement is tempered by events at Suzuka a week ago but revealed his pride at Mercedes' success.

"This is a great moment for our team but, first of all, we must not forget what happened last week," Wolff said. "While we celebrate a hard-earned achievement today, we will not forget what happened to Jules in Suzuka and we will not forget the battle he is fighting at the moment.

"We are split in two today, celebrating a moment that we have worked so hard for, but this will never take away the sadness at the events of last weekend.

"Looking at this achievement, it's incredible: I have to pinch myself that we are now part of Mercedes-Benz history. Today, our team won the first ever Formula 1 Constructors' title for Mercedes-Benz and I feel proud and honoured to be part of this group."
