Mercedes have announced the date that they will launch their W09, opting for the same day as Ferrari – February 22.
With pre-season testing scheduled to begin at the Barcelona circuit on the 26th, Formula 1 fans can expect a busy week in the build-up.
However, arguably the busiest day – or at least the one that garners the most attention – will be the 22nd.
Ferrari have already revealed that they’ll unveil their 2018 challenger on the Thursday with Mercedes deciding they too want to do it on the 22nd.
