Mercedes have shared another teaser photo ahead of their 2022 car launch.

Following on from similar shots, the team took to social media on Friday evening to show a new angle of an apparent concept car, giving fans a glimpse of what to expect when the covers are taken off the W13 on 18 February.

As per previous images, the car is shrouded in a haze, with no livery or decals visible, apart from the Mercedes star.

It comes shortly after new signing George Russell hinted at a change of colour scheme for the upcoming season following a visit to the Mercedes factory this week, where he saw the 2022 livery on a show car.

Mercedes switched from a silver to black livery in 2020, as a visual representation of their support for Lewis Hamilton's endorsement of the 'Black Lives Matter' movement. The livery was then kept on for 2021, before the rumours of a return gathered pace.

Hamilton is set to partner Russell this year, though has maintained radio silence since the controversial ending to the 2021 season in Abu Dhabi.
