Mercedes is using its iconic Silver Arrows livery made famous in the 1950s. The W01 is the latest F1 car on this year’s grid to use the Red Bull-style front nose which was so successful for last year's runner-up team towards the end of last season.

Today’s test will feature seven of the 13 teams on 2010’s grid.
