First look at Mercedes F1 car on 18-inch tyres

We’ve had a good look at several Formula 1 cars on Pirelli’s new 18-inch tyres, but George Russell testing for Mercedes has given us the chance to see the class car of the field on the new wheels.

Pirelli will introduce the new tyres into Formula 2 next season, ahead of their introduction to F1 in 2021.

Not all fans have been won over by the new look, while others have issued scepticism at the necessity to bring them in to improve racing.

F1 cars are predicted to look significantly different by that time thanks to the new regulations, but take a look at the W10 on the new wheels. What do you make of it? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter!
