While several teams have released footage of the new cars getting ready for the upcoming 2017 Formula One Championship season, MercedesF1 are the only ones to date to actually release a video of the team performing a pit stop with the all new wider Pirelli tyres that will be used this year.

With the teams scheduled to unveil their new car at Silverstone in just under two weeks time, February 23rd, 4 days prior to the first official test of the season at Barcelona, it is all systems go and any work, including pit stop practice, that they can perfect without needing to be actually on the test track, will only enhance their chances of securing their fourth consecutive world title.

New signing Valtteri Bottas was lucky enough to be on hand to watch his new team in action...
