Ahead of tomorrow's official unveiling in front of the media at Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona, MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS has released a teaser presentation film that showcases the new F1 W03 car in action on the Silverstone track. It obviously does not reveal too much of the 2012 title contender. What is of main interest is the very first performance of the car, as Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher took the single-seater for an initial shakedown on the British circuit. As the regulations state, both drivers were able to complete a total of 50 kilometers each. The video you see above was recorded with a special helmet-mounted camera while Nico was taking the F1 W03 out for a spin at Silverstone last week.
A fan outside the track managed to capture a glimpse of the new car. As expected, the nose cone meets the new rules and regulations, so this leaves Vodafone McLaren Mercedes as the sole F1 team to feature the "old-school" design of previous years. Hit the jump and see more!
