Germans Mercedes GP revealed the silver color they will use on the cars that will participate at the 2010 world championship. The model will be revealed in Spain and its name will be MGP W01, or at least this is what the team said in a press conference. Traces of black carbon fiber are visible on the nose and on other parts of the car. The specialists say they are ready for the grand livery launch. Unfortunately these are all the information available so far, but next Monday more details will be revealed.
Mercedes GP on Monday revealed the bright silver livery it will use on its cars for the 2010 world championship.
At the German carmaker`s Stuttgart museum shortly after 11am, drivers Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg presented the colour scheme - featuring a black nose and a turquoise sheen in deference to title sponsor Petronas - to hundreds of media representatives.
The car, to be unveiled and tested next Monday in Spain, will be called the MGP W01, the team said in a press statement.
"On the nose and other parts of the car, traces of black carbon fibre are visible," said Mercedes, referring to the fact that the traditional use of silver dates back to when white paint was sanded off the 1934 car to reduce weight.
"We are perfectly on schedule," said Norbert Haug, responding as to why the 2009 Brawn car was used for the livery launch.
"If you are testing on 1 February and you have already finished the car beforehand, then you have not used your time correctly," said the German.
Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche, meanwhile, was not on message after Mercedes officials insisted for weeks that Schumacher and Rosberg do not represent `Team Germany`.
He said the duo "together complete the German Formula One national team".
