Wolff says he would take off halo "with a chainsaw"

Wolff says he would take off halo

Since the hybrid era began in 2014, the team has dominated the race scene, and if the team has another winning package, it could tie Ferrari's winning streak of world championships set back in the 2000s.

The new challenger has a longer wheelbase to move it more into line with rival Mercedes' design.

Lewis Hamilton spent much of his winter learning to surf, enough of a break from his regular life for the Formula One world champion to declare his intention to sign a new contract with Mercedes and return to social media at the launch of his new race car.

Britain's most successful racing driver is expected to commit to the team until the end of the 2021 season on a deal that would increase his salary to £40m a year. And there are only two of us that get to drive it. It's such a unique privilege to have.

Mercedes have won four drivers' and constructors' championships in a row, including the title Nico Rosberg won in 2016before retiring.

What's different on the new Mercedes? "We had already planned at the end of the year to start a clean slate, and it just so happened that it was an opportunistic time to change it", Hamilton added.

Wolff does, however, believe there are a number of teams who could potentially disrupt the status quo in 2018.

Ugly from the outside, the onboard footage does little to convince that the Aeroscreen wouldn't have made a better alternative.

No one has really been able to touch Mercedes in recent seasons.

The car is an evolution of last year's W08 EQ Power+ that star driver Lewis Hamilton drove to a fourth title.

Valtteri Bottas was the first to take the wheel of the new Mercedes car out on track at the launch.

We mustn't discount anybody, said Wolff. "Doing the first laps and seeing the car is working ok is a very exciting moment. The heavier they are they will always continue to get slower".

"It's a work of art", Hamilton said, seemingly genuinely excited.

The car featured a predominantly red livery, including a red and black tinted Halo, which carries the team's iconic logo on the very front. And he knows that I know that there's nowhere else better so I'm not going to be looking anywhere else.
