The new Mercedes F1 W13 Has Passed Safety Tests

Mercedes announced today that their new F1 car for 2022 has successfully passed all FIA safety tests after some media reported that the world champions have not yet passed the tests, less than a month before the start of pre-season testing.

The British tabloid wrote over the weekend that neither Mercedes nor Red Bull had passed certain FIA tests, and they even went so far as to specify which of the many tests they did not pass.
But Mercedes decided today to end speculation and confirmed that their F1 W13 passed all FIA safety tests back on January 13, more than two weeks ago.
Mercedes will present the new car on February 18, five days before the start of pre-season testing in Barcelona (February 23-25), and testing will continue in Bahrain March 10-12.
