Reigning Champions Mercedes is all set to unveil their new car on February 22, as the team looks confident to win exceptional fifth consecutive F1 World Constructors’ Championship in 2018.
Mercedes have just lost 16 out of the 79 Grands Prix since the V8 era gave way to hybrid V6s at the end of the 2013 season & this shows the whole dominance of the team in the Formula one world.
Since then a Mercedes driver has won the F1 World Drivers’ Championship every time with Lewis Hamilton winning it thrice out of four times. He lost it once in 2016, that too to his team-mate Nico Rosberg.
This year too, the Brit looks the heavy-weight for winning the championship but he can expect some tough challenge from rival Sebastian Vettel, who lost his way last year after the summer-break. Red Bulls’ Daniel Ricciardo & Max Verstappen can also put some fight for the podium.
When and where is the Mercedes F1 2018 car launch?
The heavyweights Mercedes will reveal their car on Thursday February 22, the same day Ferrari will unleash their red car.
However, the Italian team will do theirs in an online-only capacity while Mercedes will take over Silverstone Wing and invite the world’s media to the British Grand Prix circuit for theirs.
