The LHCb experiment covers the forward region of proton-proton collisions, and it can improve the current electroweak landscape by studying the production of W and Z boson in this phase space complementary to ATLAS and CMS. Several preliminary studies have shown the potential of the LHCb experiment to measure the W boson mass with a muon pT based technique, which could yield a statistical precision of 10 MeV if using the full Run 2 dataset. A proof-of-concept measurement of the W boson mass, using only the 2016 dataset, will be presented.
