WATCH: Mercedes launch 2017 car
Watch the world champions reveal their new car; First pictures of the W08 emerge from morning 'shakedown'
Last Updated: 23/02/17 2:53pm
Enjoy a close look at the Mercedes W08 as the world champions and Lewis Hamilton launch their new 2017 car at Silverstone.
The full unveiling was shown live on Sky Sports News HQ and streamed on the Sky Sports F1 Digital platforms.
Prior to the launch, pictures of the W08 being taken for a 'shakedown' drive around the Silverstone circuit by Lewis Hamilton had already revealed a sleek-looking car without the unpopular 'fin' that has featured on most of the 2017 contenders.
The W08 is the first car the team have produced in the wake of technical director Paddy Lowe's departure this winter but, after three successive title doubles, few will be betting against it being the car to beat in 2017.
