Mercedes will headline a busy end to 'launch week' on Friday when the car that will defend F1's world titles will be revealed and then debuted on track for the first time.

Although the six-time champions have already unveiled their reworked livery for 2020, that colour-scheme was applied to an old car - the new W11 itself having instead been kept under wraps until Mercedes' shakedown at Silverstone when Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will drive it for the first time.

Then on Friday it will be over to F1's two now-similarly-named teams - Alfa Romeo and the new-look AlphaTauri - to reveal the first looks at their respective 2020 machines.

HAAS VF-20

A return to the team's more familiar livery aside, little was given away in the digital images - but the early message from the team was certainly clear. 2020 must be better than 2019, when they slumped to ninth in the championship with a car that consistently misbehaved and mishandled on race day.

FERRARI SF1000

a black and red keyboard So is this the Ferrari that delivers world title glory back to Italy? We won't know whether the SF1000 - named so to recognise the fact that F1's oldest team reach the 1,000 race milestone this year - joins the Maranello hall of fame for another nine months, but the team are confident they have worked hard to address the weakness that held back last year's model. Chasing downforce has been the chief target, with tighter packaging at the rear of the car noticeable on the launch-spec chassis. The car retains the weight-saving matte finish of its predecessor but, in good news for F1's traditionalists, the SF1000 features more of that famous Ferrari red.

There were no quirky launch-special livery reveals this time, with the RB16 simply revealed via studio images online before the team got straight on with running it for the first time at Silverstone. While it's true for all teams, Red Bull in particular tend to hold plenty of juicy developments back until deeper into pre-season.

Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 2020 UK review

  Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 2020 UK review The CLA 35 is easily the sharpest looking of all Mercedes-AMG’s junior performance cars, but is it a question of style over substance?This is a quick car by regular standards, and despite the fairly obvious amounts of synthetic aural trickery, it’s one that sounds good, too. Lift off the throttle and it pops and bangs on the overrun like a superheated witches’ cauldron. But in a similar fashion to its bigger, badder 416bhp A45 S relative, it doesn’t quite feel as quick when locked in gear as its numbers suggest it should. Which is a bit odd.
