Mercedes shows glimpse of W06 in series of clips

Hear and even see the new Mercedes W06.

On the heels of the McLaren MP4-30 launch, Mercedes has posted a series of short clips teasing their new W06. The car was partaking in a shakedown at Silverstone today, piloted by both Rosberg and Hamilton.

UPDATE: Mercedes has gone a step beyond showing glimpses of the car, putting two crystal clear images on their Twitter account today. Many elements from the W05 have been carried over, but there are some differences.

The nose is flatter and with a shorter tip, conforming to the new regulations.

The car is a much sleeker and refined version of its predecesor with noticable changes in the packaging towards the rear of the car. It is also more tightly packaged around the engine with a more profound fin of sorts running down the back of the engine cover, now black per the slightly altered color scheme of the car. 

The livery appears to remain mostly unchanged from their 2014 championship-winning cars outside of that.

Mercedes has uploaded a dozen short videos of the car, which you can watch HERE.
