The fourth best team of 2016 will unveil their new car with drivers Sergio Perez, and newly appointed Esteban Ocon at Silverstone, the Frenchman replacing Nico Hulkenberg who is to head the driver pairing at Renault.
“We have a lot in store for that day, so watch this space (and our social media accounts, too) for more information on how to fully enjoy the start of this new season.
“With a new driver line-up, new regulations and a renewed hunger to build on our most successful season ever, it’s time to Feel the Force again!”
Mercedes will also be holding their launch at Silverstone the following day, with Ferrari doing the same at their home in Italy on the Friday. Preseason testing will start in Barcelona the following Monday, now with at least three teams due to launch their car in advance of testing.
