Mercedes sets 2024 F1 car launch date

1 min read

Mercedes will unveil its W15 car for the 2024 Formula 1 season on February 14, becoming the fifth team to reveal details of its launch.

The team is describing its launch as a 'digital' event, which will take place at Silverstone two days after Aston Martin hosts its 2024 reveal at the same venue.

Such events from Mercedes have in the past typically been followed by a physical shakedown run at Silverstone the same day.

The W15 will be the first Mercedes of the ground-effect era built around a different concept, the team having acknowledged at the beginning of the 2023 F1 season that persevering with its initial concept for a second year was the wrong course of action.

Its launch date is the latest for any team announced so far.

The rebranded Stake F1 team and Williams will both host season launches on February 5, though Williams at least is thought unlikely to reveal its actual 2024 car at that time.

Ferrari is the fifth team to have announced its schedule. It will reveal what it has described as a "95%" new car for 2024 on February 13, one day after Aston Martin and a day before Mercedes.
