Mercedes F1 W06 Hybrid to be Unveiled
Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team will unveil the 2015 Formula One World Championship challenger on Sunday 1 February 2015 at the Circuito de Jerez, Spain.
The official first appearance of the next generation of Silver Arrows racing car will take part on the opening day of winter testing when the important event will be streamed live and will be distributed to the public thanks to the team's social medial channels.
During the first two days of the test, the F1 W06 Hybrid will be driven by Nico Rosberg. After that, on day one and three, the car will be taken by Lewis Hamilton.
Toto Wolff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport says; "The workload this winter has been as great as ever. Where last year we were preparing for an all-new formula of racing, we are now faced with the big challenge of making the next step in our development. We know that we went into the winter with a target on our backs for the other teams – and we are certain that our rivals will be competitive from the opening race in Melbourne. So we have to focus on every detail if we want to build any advantage this year and that is what we have done. This is an exciting time of year as our collective efforts all come together in the new car. Everybody in Brackley, Brixworth and Stuttgart has put a great amount of effort into creating the latest Silver Arrow and I thank them for their efforts so far. We are excited to see how the car performs when it begins running."
Further details will follow soon.
