Mercedes’ 2018 car, the W09, has broken cover for the first time, photograph of the new car leaked on social media.

W09 is being launched at the Silverstone circuit today, with Valtteri Bottas slated to hit the track in the morning before handing over to reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton for the afternoon.

First laps in the bag for Valtteri Bottas and the 2018 W09 EQ Power+

In the morning, the car rolled out of the garage with Bottas, only to be rolled back in straight away without completing a lap. The same sequence occurred again about 30 minutes later. Later in the morning, the car completed its first laps of the season.

The new car, which will be officially unveiled at 12:10GMT at Silverstone, features a tweaked livery and the controversial Halo.
