Reigning world champion team Mercedes has released images of its 2015 F1 car completing a shakedown run at Silverstone.

Drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg jumped behind the wheel of the all new W06 in icy conditions at the Northamptonshire circuit as the team prepared for the first pre-season test at Jerez, Spain on Sunday.

The W06, featuring a slightly revised nose design and livery, completed 18 laps before a blizzard ended the session which was classed as a promotional event.

Mercedes will officially launch its W06, the successor to the all conquering championship winning W05, at Jerez prior to the start of 2015 pre-season testing.
