Mercedes will unveil its W06 Hybrid - the car with which it will defend its world titles - shortly before the first day of pre-season testing begins in Spain.

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will pull the covers from the W06 Hybrid in the pit lane at Jerez on February 1st, before running gets underway at 9am local time.

Rosberg will give the car its debut on the Sunday and will drive again on Tuesday, with Hamilton getting to sample the W06 Hybrid on Monday and Wednesday

"The workload this winter has been as great as ever," said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff.

"Where last year we were preparing for an all-new formula of racing, we are now faced with the big challenge of making the next step in our development.

"We know that we went into the winter with a target on our backs for the other teams - and we are certain that our rivals will be competitive from the opening race in Melbourne. So we have to focus on every detail if we want to build any advantage this year and that is what we have done."
