Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button pose by the new McLaren-Mercedes MP4-26 at its public unveiling before fans on the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin yesterday.

McLaren were the last of the big Formula One teams to roll out their car for the forthcoming season but still kept several elements under wraps with a fake engine and exhaust on display. "This is our new baby," Button said. "This is the car that hopefully will take one of us to win the drivers' world championship and also the constructors'."
