The new livery by the Silver Arrows was launched on February 14. 

The W15 represents a significant departure from its predecessors, featuring a new chassis, new front and rear suspension, a new gearbox, and refined aerodynamics and sidepods.

The W15 brings back the iconic silver color to the Mercedes livery, complementing the black that has become a part of the team’s identity.

The W15’s development took into account the lessons learned from the issues faced by the W13 and W14, particularly regarding ride height and aerodynamic efficiency.

The W15 is scheduled for a shakedown session at Silverstone, followed by pre-season testing in Bahrain.

Lewis Hamilton and George Russell will be the main drivers for Mercedes this season. 

This will be Hamilton’s final season with Mercedes before making the switch to Ferrari.
