Mercedes has confirmed its launch plans for the unveiling of its 2020 Formula 1 car that will break cover on February 14.

The W11, which will driven by reigning champion Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, will debut on-track in a shakedown run at Silverstone.

The event will not be open to the public or media, but Mercedes plans to release a series of images, videos and technical information of the car on the day of the launch.

Five of the 10 teams have now set dates for their respective car presentations, with Ferrari the first to reveal its design three days before Mercedes.

Renault, McLaren and the rebranded Alpha Tauri team, formally Toro Rosso, are the remaining outfits to confirm their plans.

Mercedes is on the verge of creating F1 history in 2020 as the German manufacturer looks to become the first team to win seven straights constructors’ titles.

Hamilton is also chasing a seventh world championship this season, a feat that would see the Briton tie Michael Schumacher’s all time record.

Pre-season testing commences on February 19 in Barcelona, with the number of test days now reduced from eight to six.
