"It’s great to reveal to the world the result of everyone’s hard work at the factories and to see some of my team-mates in person, which has been so rare during the past year. I’ve been in touch with the engineers through the winter, keeping track of their preparations as I prepare myself for the season ahead.

"The excitement has been building and building, so now I just can’t wait to get out on track in the W12."

Standing on the precipice of becoming the most dominant driver ever in the history of Formula 1, Hamilton will be hoping Mercedes have carried over their form from the past seven years into 2021. The Englishman will targeting a record-breaking eighth world title and is well placed to become the first driver in history to win 100 Grand Prix.
