The Williams F1 Team has confirmed that it has fired up its 2014 challenger, the FW36, for the very first time.

In a message on Twitter, the Grove based-outfit revealed that team boss and founder, Sir Frank Williams was at the factory on Saturday evening to see the Mercedes engine being started. Williams have switched to Mercedes powerplants this year after two years with Renault.

Williams has still to confirm when it will officially launch the FW36, although it has said it will attend the opening pre-season test at Jerez in Spain, which runs from January 28-31, with Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas likely to split the running between them.
