Direct rivals Red Bull and Ferrari have already announced that their next single seaters will be ready for the start of the opening test of the 2012 pre-season.

"The MP4-27 will break cover on Wednesday February 1 2012," Woking based McLaren said on Monday.

The Mercedes powered team said the launch location will be announced "after the new year".

"The MP4-27 will test for the first time at Jerez on February 7-9," McLaren added.

Mercedes' new car, the W02, will not be tested until the second test, set to take place in Barcelona two weeks after the Jerez session.
