The new Mercedes W08 that’ll race in the 2017 Formula 1 season has broken cover at Silverstone after it hit the track, with Lewis Hamilton at the wheel.
Mercedes just couldn’t wait until it’s official launch event to give us a glimpse of the W08, so they sent Hamilton out for a shakedown.
Naturally, social media was quickly filled with photos of the car, showing off undoubtedly the best looking F1 machine to be revealed so far.
