Mercedes GP W03 spied during shakedown

2012 MercedesGO W03 at Silverstone

The 2012 Mercedes GP F1 car is due for its official reveal at Barcelona next Tuesday, but the car has been photographed early during a secret shakedown test at Silverstone yesterday.

As you can see Michael Schumacher was at the wheel during the light run. It’s also evident that Ross Brawn and his merry men have adopted the ‘platypus’ step prevalent on F1 cars this year.

We’ll have more detail on the W03 for you next week.
