Mercedes GP unveils its 2010 Formula 1 livery

It’s been almost 55 years since Mercedes-Benz had its own Formula 1 racing team, as up until recently it has just partnered up with other teams, like McLaren, now, after it has bought reigning F1 champion team Brawn GP, you can be sure it will definitely promote the new team, Mercedes GP Petronas.

The first step was yesterday’s unveiling of the 2010 season livery, which will be featured by the cars the team will race, piloted by Nico Rosberg and an older guy, going by the name of Michael Schumacher. As you can see, it brings back the classic silver theme, which earned Mercedes and Auto Union Formula 1 cars the name Silver Arrows during the 1950s.

The MGP W01 2010 race car is set to be unveiled next week during the tests scheduled to take place in Valencia, when we will see if Schumacher, Rosberg or Mercedes can perform as expected. Until then, we can enjoy the new livery.
