Mercedes will launch its challenger for the 2023 F1 championship, the W14, on February 15th.
Drivers Lewis Hamilton, seven-times world champion, and George Russell, now a Grand Prix winner, will take the wraps off what they hope will be a vast improvement on 2022’s W13.
The W14 will be unveiled in a special digital event to be broadcast live from Silverstone, where Hamilton has won the British Grand Prix on eight occasions.
On the Mercedes F1 website, the team said the W14 has been “forged from the challenges of the testing 2022 campaign” and aims to “build on the lessons learned last year.”
After winning eight consecutive constructors’ titles in the turbo-hybrid era, the porpoising W13 saw the Brackley team fall to third in the 2022 standings, as the team recorded only a single victory.
That came in Sao Paulo, as Russell beat Hamilton to win his first Grand Prix, whilst F1’s most successful driver went winless for the first time in his F1 career.
Team Principal Toto Wolff has gone on record to say how difficult it will be to catch new champions Red Bull in 2023, but the Silver Arrows are expected to bounce back this season.
Below are all the launch dates announced so far:
