The 2014 Formula 1 champions provided a sneak view of their new race car during a shakedown test with the W06 Hybrid at Silverstone.

Mercedes hopes that this new car can defend their constructors’ title as well as giving the chance for Lewis Hamilton to seek his third drivers’ championship.

These images were provided by the outfit’s social media channel as Mercedes conducted a filming day with Nico Rosberg and champion Hamilton behind the wheel.

The W06 Hybrid covered 18 laps in icy conditions at the home of British motor racing.

Mercedes will officially launch the 2015 challenger on the first day of pre-season testing at Jerez on February 1.
