Mercedes have given fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Mick Schumacher's first seat fit with the team.

After being replaced at Haas for 2023 by Nico Hulkenberg, it was confirmed in December that Schumacher would join the Silver Arrows as a reserve driver.

Now the German has taken his first steps to being race-ready should he be required to step in at any point during the season ahead.

A new video released by the squad shows Schumacher visiting their Brackley headquarters to have his seat fit carried out.

While Schumacher's position will see him undertake simulator duties and marketing duties for Mercedes alongside his reserve role, he will also be available to McLaren as a reserve driver if needed.
