Doesn't make them a German team, also a lot of the bills will be paid for with money from PETRONAS so by that logic they are a good part Malaysian.
Manchester United are owned by an American but I doubt anyone would call them an American Team (its not the same I know) but my point is that the Mercedes "team" is based in Britain and mostly staffed by British people so calling Mercedes a German team is not really accurate. German Owned Team perhaps. Would you call FIF1 and Indian Team?
Its odd that Both Toro Rosso and Red Bull are listed as owned by Red Bull but Torro Rosso is still classed as an Italian Team whereas Red Bull is entered as Austrian.
I'm not advocating that anything should changed, I just think its quite funny.
