Max Verstappen was here in his RB16 recently, and now it's Valtteri Bottas' turn to test his 2020 equipment at Silverstone! The Finn took the W11 for a spin around Silverstone on the day of its presentation.

We saw a new Bottas at the start of the 2019 season, dubbed 'Bottas 2.0'. Will we see the 30-year-old reborn again in Melbourne?

The splash of red on the front wing endplate is courtesy of the team's newest sponsor INEOS. The front wing also seems similar in concept to last year's W10. Why change a winning concept?

The W11 seems similar in concept to the RB16, Red Bull Racing's 2020 contender. Where Ferrari opted to reduce as much drag as possible in 2019, Mercedes and Red Bull focussed on downforce, which seemed to be the right way to go. It seems like the Silver Arrows designed a high-downforce car yet again.

It's been all about Mercedes in the previous six years, winning every single championship available. Can they repeat the trick in 2020 or have the competition caught up by now? It seems the German works team will be the team to beat yet again.

It has been plain sailing for Mercedes for years now, largely thanks to the brilliant performances of Lewis Hamilton. The Brit will be looking for the W11 to take him to a fourth consecutive World Championship!

Lewis Hamilton can match Michael Schumacher's record of seven Drivers' Championships next season and he'll be the strong favourite to do so. Will the Brit move level with the German in 2020?

After a bit of resistance from Valtteri Bottas, Hamilton eventually surged clear but will anyone challenge him this season? Max Verstappen will be hoping he can but might fall short in the car department and who knows what Ferrari will turn up. It could be on Bottas again to mount a title charge!
