Head on over to the Mercedes team’s official Twitter account to check out all of the posts, or follow all the action (and reactions) by searching the hashtag #W06Spy.
The Williams and Lotus teams had already officially unveiled their own cars in the previous days, showing off the 2015 editions of their cars powered by the Mercedes-Benz power unit. McLaren had also previewed its car a day ago, but this time, it will be running on newcomer Honda’s power unit.
We just have to say, the W06 looks good. The classic silver and mint-green is there, of course, and we can also see some subtle changes applied to the design, not the least of which is the new, shorter nose.
Official testing starts Sunday with Nico Rosberg at the wheel, alternating with defending drivers’ champion Lewis Hamilton during the four days at Jerez.
