Mercedes-AMG Petronas motorsport's tenth modern-day F1 car hits the track in Silverstone - Lewis Hamilton

With a little over four weeks to go until the start of the 2019 FIA Formula One season, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport today completed the first laps with its 2019 challenger.

Named the Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power+, the 2019 contender ran on the 2.98 km Silverstone International Circuit this morning with Valtteri Bottas behind the wheel, to be followed by Lewis Hamilton this afternoon.

β€œThe 2019 season will be a new challenge for all of us,” said Toto Wolff, Team Principal & CEO.

β€œThe regulations have changed quite substantially.

We have to start from scratch, we need to prove ourselves again – against our own expectations and against our competitors.

We start the season with zero points, so we’re taking nothing for granted and there’s absolutely no feeling of entitlement to be at the front.

In fact, with the regulation change for the new season, every team can have a shot at the title and we’re seeing all of them as a potential threat.” Today’s running constitutes an official 100 km filming day, which the team also uses as a final systems check before the first pre-season test in Barcelona.
