Ferrari and Mercedes-AMG reveal 2018 Formula 1 cars

Mercedes and Ferrari cars for F1 2018 poised to be revealed

Mercedes and Ferrari cars for F1 2018 poised to be revealed

World champion Lewis Hamilton is scheduled to drive the W09 in the afternoon, after the auto is officially unveiled.

Hamilton has not been seen in the public eye, though, since the turn of the year, after he was lambasted in the press and on social media for comments made about his nephew wearing a dress.

The rivals, last year's championship contenders, will launch their respective new cars within two hours of each other from lunchtime ahead of a season in which they again expect to battle for F1's world titles. EQ Power+ refers to Merc's ongoing hybrid model strategy, and we're told that over 7,000 "drawn parts" have been built, and more than 40,000 components have been through "non-destructive testing inspection". The auto, which has a sort of cage in front of the seat to comply with new rules, was unveiled in the presence of Ferrari President Sergio Marchionne and Piero Ferrari. I'll be even better this year [at handling pressure situations], so it shouldn't be an issue. I think Ferrari, Red Bull and ourselves are very close.

Tight laws around cigarette advertising have meant that the logos of the American firm's Marlboro brand have not appeared on Ferrari's auto since 2007, but the renewal announcement said the partnership would now be "exclusively focused on advancing the cause of a smoke-free world", prompting suggestions that one of their e-cigarette brands could be promoted.

"Some people in their careers are very privileged to be in a strong position and Lewis is one of those because he can afford to be patient".

Wolff said Hamilton was "extremely motivated" for the new season and expected him to sign a new contract to stay at Mercedes beyond the end of this season "in a few weeks".
