The double-championship-winning Mercedes W10 completed its last laps in the two-day Pirelli 2021 18-inch tyre test.

Mercedes junior driver and Williams’ current race driver George Russell completed 200 laps on Sunday and Monday at the Yas Marina Circuit to gather information on Pirelli’s 2021 tyres.

The test was run by Pirelli using a modified Mercedes F1 W10 EQ Power+ “mule car”, while all gathered data was shared with other teams, to prevent anyone from gaining an unfair advantage.

The tyres were previously tested by McLaren’s Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris, as well as Renault’s test driver Sergey Sirotkin.
