Uhlenhaut, Rudolf (D)

b 15/7/1906 (London, England) - d 8/5/1989

After obtaining his degree, Uhlenhaut joined the experimental department in Mercedes. Within a few years he was given the job of sorting out the racing department, and he started out by driving the Mercedes race car around the Nürburgring until he had worked out how to make it go faster. He then developed the Mercedes race cars up until WW2. 

After the hostilities, Uhlenhaut developed the Mercedes 300SL, and when they returned to the track, the W196. When Mercedes withdrew from racing in 1955, he worked on Mercedes road car projects instead. During the racing years, Uhlenhaut was frequently as fast, if not faster, than the regular drivers, but he was never allowed to race.
