Mercedes officially unveiled its 2015 Formula 1 car, the W06 Hybrid, ahead of testing in Jerez.
Drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg took the covers of the car that Mercedes hopes will earn it back-to-back titles in a chilly Jerez pitlane on Sunday morning.
The team completed a brief, weather interrupted shakedown of its car earlier this week, releasing a number of initial images of its new car.
Mercedes won a record 16 of 19 races in 2014, claiming the constructors’ championship with ease, while Hamilton edged Rosberg to the drivers’ title at the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi.
Rosberg will publicly debut the W06 in Jerez on Sunday, before handing over to reigning champion Hamilton for day two of testing at the Spanish circuit.
