Mercedes has offered a small glimpse of its new W07 car, days before it hits the track for the first time ahead of the 2016 Formula 1 season.

Charged with defending the F1 titles it so dominantly clinched in 2014 and 2015 with the W05 and W06, the W07 is seen in the background of a promotional video as team members - including drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg - explain what 'W07' means to them.

It comes as Mercedes prepare to 'shakedown' the car on a filming day this week, before it hits the track properly at the Circuit de Catalunya.
