Mercedes hits the track with 2014 car

Mercedes hits the track with 2014 car | Mercedes | Formula 1 news, live F1 | ESPN F1
Mercedes has put the first 40km on its 2014 car by completing a filming day at Silverstone. It later released a brief YouTube audio clip of the car on track (above).

Nico Rosberg was behind the wheel of the new W05, giving it a shakedown in cold but dry conditions. The car left the garage at 14.21 in the afternoon and completed 40km before dusk at 16.30.

Under the current testing restrictions, teams are allowed to complete filming days on demonstration tyres, but the running will have been useful to start to weed out basic teething issue ahead of its public track debut in Jerez on Tuesday. The team also confirmed that its drivers would spend alternate days at the wheel next week, starting with Lewis Hamilton on Tuesday.

The team confirmed the W05 in question was a "full 2014 specification Formula One car".

Merc W05 to show Schumi support

Merc W05 to show Schumi support | Planet F1 | Formula One | News, Standings, Results, Features, Video
Mercedes' new look car for the 2014 F1 season will display a message of support for seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher, who remains in a coma following a serious skiing accident last month.

The bodywork of the W05 model will display the words 'KeepFightingMichael', which has been used as a hashtag on the social networking site Twitter for fans to send their messages of support to the German.

Schumacher finished his Formula One career with Mercedes in 2012 after making a surprise return to the sport in 2010.

The 45-year-old has been in a medically-induced coma since suffering the accident when skiing off-piste in the French ski resort of Meribel on December 29.
