Mercedes unveils livery for 2010

Mercedes GP Petronas F1 team with Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg presented at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart.
The Mercedes GP Petronas F1 team officially unveiled its livery for F1 2010 today in a ceremony at the manufacturers' museum in Stuttgart.

The event opened with a welcome speech by Dr. Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, before record-breaking multiple F1 world champion Michael Schumacher and his team-mate Nico Rosberg presented the new Silver Arrows livery for the 2010 season to the 600 guests.

It was displayed on last year's car, the 2009 title winning Brawn GP 001 - Mercedes of course having taken over the Brackley-based outfit at the end of last year.

"With today's presentation of our new Mercedes GP Petronas F1 Team, a new and certainly the most important chapter of over 100 years of Mercedes-Benz motorsport history begins," said Norbert Haug, Mercedes Benz Motorsport vice-president. "The new F1 season will offer challenges which will be bigger than ever before in over sixty years of the sport's history.

"We look forward to the co-operation with our drivers Nico Rosberg who has enormous capabilities and perspectives, and with seven-time World champion Michael Schumacher who is no less motivated than at the time when he began his professional motor racing career with Mercedes-Benz and then made his first step into such a successful F1 career with our support.

"Today I also cordially welcome our new title partner Petronas as well as our co-investor Aabar/IPIC together with all our team partners. I warmly welcome all our colleagues from last year's World Championship team Brawn GP headed by Ross Brawn and Nick Fry to the Mercedes family.

"There are challenging tasks ahead of us and we all will tackle them with power, consistency and full motivation."

The Mercedes GP Petronas F1 team's 2010 F1 car, the MGP W01, meanwhile will make its track debut at the first F1 test in Valencia on Monday 1 February.
