The Englishman and team-mate Heikki Kovalainen took the wraps off the new Mercedes-powered MP4-24 at the team's base in Surrey.

And 24-year-old Hamilton said: "This is now my third season and I've got my targets. I want the title again."

Meanwhile, McLaren said Ron Dennis will step down as team principal on 1 March, to be replaced by Martin Whitmarsh.

Hamilton won last year's title by a single point from Brazilian Ferrari driver Felipe Massa, who has already had a day testing his team's new car.

The McLaren car is the third to be unveiled ahead of the new season after Ferrari and Toyota's new models broke cover earlier last week.

And Hamilton said: "The car looks beautiful and it's great to see the final outcome.

"But I certainly don't feel any extra pressure being champion. This season will be a whole new challenge for everyone, including me, because of the rule changes.
