Mercedes have announced the February reveal date for their 2022 Formula 1 car – the W13 – that is set to see Lewis Hamilton and George Russell compete as team mates for the first time.

    The eight-time constructors' champions are seeking to extend their record with a ninth consecutive title this season, while Hamilton looks for a record eighth drivers' championship title. Russell makes his full-time debut for the Silver Arrows as Valtteri Bottas has departed for Alfa Romeo.

    Mercedes will reveal their W13 Formula 1 car on February 18 in an online event from Silverstone.

    That's eight days after customer team Aston Martin take the covers off their AMR22. The W13 will then be given a shakedown run around the iconic circuit later that day.
