Merc 'aim to deliver' in 2014

Mercedes presented their W05 to the world in the Jerez paddock on Tuesday morning with the new car featuring a Ferrari-esque nose.

This year all the attention regarding the new designs has been on the nose with some unveiling dolphin noses and other twin tusks.

However, like Ferrari, Mercedes have gone for a more platypus style of nose.

The car, which Mercedes are hoping will carry them close to a World title, incorporates Mercedes' new 1.6-litre V6 engine.

"The adventure has only just begun," said executive director Toto Wolff.

"We have a busy winter testing period ahead of us and a long season where both performance and reliability wil be critically important.

"Lewis and Nico begin the season hungry for success and I am confident that our team will benefit thanks to the continuity of their work during the winter period.

"We have positive momentum after our second-place finish last season.

"Our clear target is to continue building up our team and we aim to deliver on every single race weekend in 2014."
