Video: Mercedes break down all the new features of the W12

We're closing in on the start of the 2021 Formula 1 season as teams gear up their preparations for the opening race in Bahrain on March 28. Mercedes enter the campaign as the reigning constructors' champions so why not learn more about their new car, the W12, with technical director James Allison.

Formula 1 fans and pundits got their first look at the Mercedes W12 over the course of winter testing in Bahrain, and while first impressions weren't exactly glowing, the finer points of the car are certainly worth breaking down.

Who better to learn about the ins and outs of the W12 than James Allison, the team's technical director since 2017. The native of Lincolnshire looks into what’s changed on the new car, along with what's carried over from the 2020 campaign that saw the team claim both the drivers' and constructors' titles.

Check out a full breakdown of the W12 in the video below.
