Very good but not greatFirst of all, it's fantastic to again see Lego pursue a partnership with a Formula 1 team to create a licensed play set via their Speed Champions range.
This time, creators have done a fairly good job in recreating a set that is not only displayable for AFOLs but extremely playable for younger F1 Lego fans.
As a playset, it is well designed; predominantly sturdy build of the cars, team garage and podium, all of which are very interactive and playable. As a display set, it is still quite appealing. Allianz, UBS and Mercedes stickers all add superb detail that enhance the overall realism of the set.
My main disappointment with the set was the inability of Lego to not accurately match the famous teal colour that is synonymous with Mercedes. The green bricks used leave a lot to be desired and really take away from the look of the overall set. Whilst I understand the cost associated with Lego producing new coloured bricks just for this set, I think it was warranted given the popularity of Speed Champions, the price point and the fact that they've gone to trouble to get the set officially licensed.
My other main disappointment was having to purchase this set overseas and have it delivered to Australia. Restraining purchase ability to certain countries is extremely unfair and I would much prefer to purchase sets from my local independent Lego stockist, but not 9 months after other parts of the world have received stock! You need to address this Lego!
Overall, a pretty good job Lego. Further refining a few smaller details would have made this a 5/5 set, however, still very happy with this purchase. Maybe you could look at a Red Bill themed set next year? ;)

Great Details For Lego or F1 FansThis was an enjoyable build with lots of great little details. I really dig the red & white curbing. Other great details are the team uniforms, all the displays, and even the hot dog vendor. Calling it "Roscoe's Dogs" is a great Easter egg for Lewis fans. I'm Mercedes Petronas fan so I love that it's not a generic race car set or even a team set with cars. It specifically calls out Nico's #6 and Lewis's #44 cars. And they look great!
That's where my one real disappointment is with this set. They went through the trouble of getting all the branding, even the sponsors, the team apparel, and even driver specific cars, but not the drivers. Both driver minifigures have yellow heads. If you're going to use Lewis Hamilton then you should represent Lewis Hamilton. They could have and should have given him a brown head. If they can do it for Finn they can do it for Lweis.
That said it is a fun set to build with lots of playability. I recommend this set to any Lego or F1 fan out there.

Don't blame LEGO ...I had previously had the McLaren F1 Pit Stop set as I'm a big fan of Lewis Hamilton, and that's where he started his career. Once he'd switched to the AMG Petronas team I've been waiting for this set to arrive - thanks LEGO!! It has everything you need from a licensed product.
But for those of you griping about the Hamilton mini-figure not having a brown head ... LEGO won't say it but it seems obvious to me ... they have only licensed use of the Mercedes AMG Petronas team name / colours NOT the drivers! Lewis will have his own image rights and I bet they cost a fortune. It's very different to licensing a character from a franchise such as Star Wars or Pirates of the Caribbean, rather than a living person. You can always trot to your local LEGO store and build your own mini-figure then use the head from that!
Hope this helps :-)

As a lego fan and Formula 1 fan, this is a beautiful kit. It captures the essence of F1 with the clean team suits and technology in the pits. I took my time on the build in order to prolong the fun. It could easily be done in a night. The noses come off the cars for a realistic play experience.
