The first pictures of F1 2015 Mercedes W06 Hybrid




MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS today completed a first day of running with its 2015 specification Formula One car during a Promotional Event at Silverstone.

The F1 W06 Hybrid, powered by the PU106B Hybrid Power Unit, first departed the garage at 13:13 this afternoon in icy conditions at the Northamptonshire circuit.

Driven first by Nico Rosberg, then Lewis Hamilton, the car completed a total of 18 laps (47.2 km) before a blizzard brought filming to a halt.

In the absence of a studded Pirelli tyre and with many crew members suffering from icicle-ridden beards, the team decided to concentrate on preparations for the first pre-season test in Jerez, Spain.

The team will now ready the F1 W06 Hybrid for its public track debut in Jerez on Sunday 1 February.
