The new Mercedes W11 will hit the track at Silverstone for a shakedown on the day of its launch.
Mercedes has released the first images of the car Lewis Hamilton will use to defend his title, the W11.
The car will hit the track for the first time at SIlverstone today with Hamilton and teammate Valtteri Bottas sharing 100km of running as part of a filming day.
After winning 15 of the 21 races in 2019 and with a major regulation changes due in 2021, its clear Mercedes has opted for an evolutionary approach with the design of the W11. The images released in the morning were renderings, so it remains to be seen what Mercedes has hidden from view and how much the car will develop over pre-season testing, which gets underway at the Circuit de Catalunya next week.
Mercedes revealed its new livery on Monday, which is also very similar to 2019’s design. Red sections have been added to the front wing, airbox and rear wing as part of a new sponsorship deal with chemical company Ineos.
An online launch and imagery of the car on track will follow later in the day.
