Now there is something special apart of the SL63 AMG in the Circuit de Catalunya track in Spain. Well, there, Mercedes’ brand- new fighter for the 2012 Formula 1 Championship was launched.
Instead of taking the 2011 spec model for the first three days at Jerez, the automaker prefer to postpone running its new creation till the FIA’s second official pre- season test session in Barcelona at 08;15 this morning
Yet, because of that, the teams were allowed to complete the missed fourth day in Barcelona on Sunday, completing as far 300 kilometers.
The W03 features 200 more parts compared to the previous model, yet it is still lighter and better. The development of the vehicle was started in May last year. In addition, the W03 also has completed all of the FIA crash tests by the end of the first week of January.
Actually, the W30 brings the common, strange airflow- maximizing stepped nose found in most 2012 cars with the distinguished exception of the McLaren which is claimed having an elegant and sophisticated design styling.
The one who will be the first to ride on the W03 is Schumacher. He himself actually has driven the car last week. Knowing that he and Nico Rosberg as his teammate have another seven days of testing at Barcelona, Schumacher who is the seven- time world champion was careful in how the new W03 performs faces its competitors.
Although Mercedes did not reveal the full details on the W03, the team had released a video last Friday and don’t forget to check out the pictures provided below.
