    Mercedes will be the next team to launch its 2012 car after confirming the covers will come off the W03 on Tuesday 21st at the second pre-season test in Barcelona.

    The Anglo-German outfit will reveal the car in the pit-lane at 08:20 local time, before it makes its debut on-track at 09:00.
    The team believes its decision to run their 2011 car, the W02, at the first test, giving them an additional two weeks development time with the W03, will pay off.

    Really curious how the MGP will look. I do hope the extra time pays off for the team.

    this could potentially be the worst of the platypus noses judging by the silhouette :(

    The silhouette of the nose looks like the whole top surface might be concave?
