Following Williams and Ferrari’s car launches on Friday, Mercedes has released a teaser video of its new Formula 1 car, the W07, taking part in a filming day at Silverstone.

Mercedes is chasing a third set of drivers’ and constructors’ championships in 2016 after enjoying two record-breaking campaigns, but is set to face increased competition from Ferrari at the front of the field.

The first public glimpse of the Mercedes W07 is likely to come in Barcelona on Monday at the start of pre-season testing, but the new car has been given a first shakedown at Silverstone during a filming day.

Mercedes took the opportunity to tweet out some teasers from the filming day to whet our appetite, with Nico Rosberg getting the first run in the car.
