“The car may look very similar to its predecessor from the outside,” said executive director for technical Paddy Lowe, “as is inherent within stable regulations – underneath there are quite a lot of mini revolutions that make up an overall evolution for the new season”.

The team hope to power Lewis Hamilton to a third straight driver’s title in 2016, although teammate Nico Rosberg will hope to push the Brit this season, as he finished 2015 with three straight victories.
