The car everyone is waiting to see is the new Mercedes, which will make its debut alongside its rivals at the Barcelona test next week.

Yesterday Mercedes shook it down at Silverstone and issued another "teaster" of the car, this time a video which gives little away about the nose of the car, but shows the concept of the main monocoque, which is very scooped out on top.

Red Bull design guru Adrian Newey suspects that this car may hold some design secret everyone will soon be copying, perhaps something to do with a front wing F Duct, perhaps another gizmo.

We'll find out next week. Meanwhile see if you can spot anything here. If you do, post it below.
