After a disappointing Formula 1 season, Mercedes will present its new racing car on 15 February.

The car with the identifier W14 will be presented at a digital event broadcast live from Silverstone. Mercedes announced on Thursday. “The 2023 car builds on the experience of the previous year, which forced the team to face and overcome numerous challenges with the W13,” it said in a review of last season’s car.

For the first time in eight years, Mercedes failed to win the Constructors’ World Championship in 2022. In the drivers’ championship, record champion Lewis Hamilton only finished sixth, his British team-mate George Russell fourth.

The drivers’ world champion was once again Dutchman Max Verstappen, who also won the constructors’ title with Red Bull. The new reserve driver at Mercedes is Mick Schumacher, who had to leave the US team Haas after two years as a regular driver.
