Mercedes will unveil its 2015 Formula 1 car ahead of the opening day of pre-season testing in Jerez.

The 2014 constructors’ champions will reveal its new F1 W06 Hybrid on Sunday morning, with Nico Rosberg set to debut the car on the opening day of testing.

Reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton will drive on day two of the test, with Rosberg returning for day three.

The German will hand over to Hamilton for the final day of running in Jerez.

“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,” Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said.

“We know that we went into the winter with a target on our backs from 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.

“The workload this winter has been as great as ever – 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.”
