Mercedes offer glimpse of 2017 challenger

Mercedes have teased fans by releasing photos of the new W08 a couple of days ahead of the official launch on Thursday.

The car appears to feature a traditional rounded front nose, unlike the thumb-tip nose concept seen on the new Sauber and Renault.

The images also suggest a dramatic livery with neon blue and neon green stripes, Petronas colours, on the traditional silver of the Silver Arrows.

The images appeared on the team’s website under the title: W08 Sneak Peak!
