Mercedes have released video footage and photos of Lewis Hamilton helping George Russell at his seat fitting for the team's W13, which will be revealed on Friday.

Hamilton has been back at the Mercedes factory after breaking his winter social media silence, which followed the controversial conclusion to the 2021 season.

While Russell has featured heavily on the team's social media channels in recent times, Hamilton appeared in content related to his new teammate's seat fit.
