The car had it’s first shakedown run on Friday (February 19) at Silverstone, as Nico Rosberg and world champion Lewis Hamilton clocking up just under 100 kilometres between them as part of a promotional event.
“After a highly successful season all round in 2015, our priority has been to identify the areas in which we were weakest and to try to improve on those,” said Lowe.
“Our objective is excellence in all areas and, while we had some fantastic results last year, there are many areas in which we can still be much better.
“That’s the kind of culture we try to instil throughout the whole organisation – one of constantly striving to reach something better.
“We had a number of races that didn’t go to plan in 2015 – Singapore in particular – so there were a lot of things that needed improving for 2016.
“We are seeking optimisation absolutely everywhere.”
The F1 W07 Hybrid certainly looks the part in terms of beauty. Long may continue the Silver Arrows supreme in Formula 1.
