The Mercedes AMG F1 team will host the first run and official presentation of its 2018 car at Silverstone, on February 22.

As the German manufacturer notes in its press release, the date clashes with Ferrari's own presentation in Maranello, but Mercedes insists it is working with its arch-rival to ensure the online launches don't overlap.

The presentation will consist of a formal reveal, photo call, live broadcast and a 100 km shakedown run on Silverstone's International Circuit with both drivers in action.

McLaren also announced the launch date of its 2018 contender with the wraps coming of the MCL33 on February 23.

As a reminder, Toro Rosso shall unveil its raging bull on the evening of February 25th, on the eve of pre-season testing which kicks off the next day in Barcelona.
