Reigning six-time Formula 1 world champions Mercedes has released the first images of its 2020 car design on the morning of its on-track debut at Silverstone.

The German manufacturer is conducting a shakedown test at the circuit before pre-season testing commences in Barcelona next week.

Mercedes has already revealed the tweaked livery on the W11 at an event on Monday, as well as unveiling INEOS as a principle sponsor on a five-year deal.

The driver line-up remains unchanged for a fourth successive season with six-time champion Lewis Hamilton alongside multiple race winner Valtteri Bottas.

Bottas will be the first to take the 2020 challenger out on track in the morning before handing over to Hamilton.

After clinching both championships for a sixth year on the trot, Mercedes heads into the season aiming to win a record-breaking seventh title.
