Mercedes are testing the 2012 F1 car at Silverstone today.

The W03 has been filmed testing at the home of the British Grand Prix, near the team’s base in Brackley. Although the car appears quite small in the video above it is possible to see a characteristic 2012 ‘stepped nose’ at the front of the W03.

Mercedes later confirmed details of the test on Twitter, saying: “We?re happy to report that our new car, the F1 W03, completed its first 100 kms during a filming day today.

Nico [Rosberg] and Michael [Schumacher] completed 50km each at Silverstone, with Nico taking the W03 out for its first lap at 10.24am (precisely).”

The car is due to be officially revealed on Tuesday next week at the Circuit de Catalunya.
