Full reveal of Merc's second works F1 car in Valencia

Mercedes has revealed its new Formula One car for 2011, the MGP W02.

The car had been teased by Mercedes over the weekend and has now been revealed in full in Valencia ahead of its testing debut this morning.

The launch of the MGP W02 is much more low key than the launch of its 2010 challenger, which was the first full works effort from Mercedes since the 1950s.

The images reveal a car with a higher nose than in 2010, and a silver livery with extra green highlighting for its title sponsor Petronas.

Mercedes has stuck with seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher for 2011, with Nico Rosberg retained as his team mate.
