Taking over the team which was the 2009 Formula 1 Constructor Champion, Daimler-Benz rebirth of the Silver Arrows was a little off target. For what was essentially a first season, Mercedes GP would not win a 2010 grand prix event but did achieve a rather stout 4th place in constructor points after 2010 with driver lineup Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg. 

Ahead of the physical launch of the 2011 Formula 1 race machine for Mercedes GP, a sneak preview image of the MGP W02 car has been presented with the above picture. Conforming to new rules allowing a driver-adjustable movable rear wing element and the optional inclusion of KERS, the MGP W02 will also be noted as excluding F Ducts (now banned by the FIA).

Set to be put through its paces at Valencia, Spain with returning Mercedes GP pilots Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg, one of the goals for the Formula 1 team will certainly be to capture a first win for the Silver Arrows since 1955 Italian Grand Prix.
