Red Bull, Mercedes And Force India Unveiled In Jerez

Red Bull, Mercedes and Force India pulled the covers off their respective cars today at the Circuit de Jerez.

The teams are in Jerez this week for the first of three pre-season tests which kicks off today.

Mercedes were the first to reveal the MGP-05 at half eight local time. The silver and black livery looks very similar to its predecessor, and noticeably does not have the new pointy nose cone which many of the teams are running. Lewis Hamilton kicked off winter testing when he took to the track at 9am local time.

Red Bull were next to reveal their 2014 title contender, the RB9. Defending World Champion Sebastian Vettel and his new team-mate Daniel Ricciardo pulled the covers off the car which also looks similar to the 2013 Red Bull model. It does feature the point nose cone, but is hidden through a clever paint scheme.

Force India were the third outfit to unveil their car, although they had leaked some computer images of the VJM-07 online during the week. The car, which will be driven by Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg this season, features a mainly black and orange livery. The VJM-07 also features a pointy nose, which is partially hidden against its black background.

Caterham F1 Team were due to unveil their 2014 model, but minor issues caused them to postpone.
