World champions Mercedes completed a day of running with its 2015 specification car during a promotional event at Silverstone today.

The F1 W06 Hybrid headed out of its garage at 13:13 this afternoon in icy conditions at the Northamptonshire circuit.

Driven first by Nico Rosberg, then Lewis Hamilton, the car completed a total of 18 laps before a blizzard brought filming to a halt.

The team will now ready the F1 W06 Hybrid for its public track debut in Jerez on Sunday 1 February.

Following Sunday's official unveiling, Rosberg will get testing underway before handing over to teammate Hamilton on Monday.

It is understood that Mercedes and Williams will be the only teams running the 2015-spec power unit in Spain.

"Was so great to drive the new Silver Arrow for the first time today!" Rosberg subsequently tweeted. "Crazy weather... Sun, snow, sun... Jerez should be a bit better."

"Best Wishes & hopes of 1st places to Williams they deserve better than they have been getting, I for one am Very much hoping they give Merc's a beating even if only half the season long. Personally I hope they may make it last longer still & win the World Championship. I am so pleased for Williams Family & Drivers of course."
