Mercedes has released footage of the W06 as part of a filming day taking place at Silverstone.

The reigning constructors' champions published teaser clips of the car arriving and being prepared at the circuit in Northamptonshire throughout Thursday, before releasing a video of the car exiting the pits with Nico Rosberg at the wheel.

The 2015 car is set for an official launch on Sunday morning ahead of the start of pre-season testing - with Rosberg again set to drive - but has now broken cover on the same day McLaren unveiled the MP4-30.
