What’s new about the 2020 Mercedes?

Of course, there is also a small red star, which the Mercedes team have put as a tribute to the late Niki Lauda. The car is also expected to integrate a dash of red in its livery. While, it is expected that they will retain the classic silver look, there is still a gorgeous-looking car waiting to see the light of day.

The venue for the reveal is at the Royal Automobile club, with a number of media personnel present. What can be expected is that Mercedes will definitely roll out a championship-winning car. Of course, the Brackley-based team will be fielding Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas for the coming season.

Judging from the teases, there will be a significant shade of red on the W11 car. INEOS has been heavily involved in a number of sporting teams and events. The reigning champions are just the latest ones to partner the chemicals giant. All in all, the car looks absolutely amazing, and absolutely screams Mercedes AMG F1.

However, it must be said that today’s launch is just to showcase the livery. So it more than likely that the new livery will be seen on the 2019 car. However, the W11 will make its actual debut on the 14th of February, and later on it will hit the track for pre-season testing in Barcelona.
