Quartet reveal 2018 car launch dates

The reigning drivers and constructor champions Mercedes have picked February 22 as the date they will unveil the W09 car at Silverstone with world champion Lewis Hamilton and team-mate Valtteri Bottas both getting behind the wheel.

That is the same day last year's runners-up Ferrari will also show the world their new, as-yet unnamed, car online at lunchtime.

McLaren have confirmed via a short video on social media that their new MCL33 car, complete with new Renault engines after their split with Honda at the end of 2017, will be unveiled on the following day on February 23.

Toro Rosso will stick with tradition and reveal their new car the day before winter testing begins at the Circuit de Catalunya, on February 25, with the STR13 to run on Honda engines.
