Mercedes confirmed on Tuesday that their new car will be launched on the opening day of next week's second Formula 1 test in Barcelona.

The team, who decided to run their 2011 car at last week's first test in Jerez in order to concentrate on developing the W03 chassis, will unveil it at the Circuit de Catalunya on Tuesday morning.

Michael Schumacher, who topped the timesheets on day two at Jerez, will give the W03 its debut run before handing over to Nico Rosberg the following day.

Schumacher will take over once more on Thursday before Rosberg returns to the cockpit for the final day of the test.
