The new Mercedes F1 car – back in its Silver Arrows livery after two years in black – was revealed prior to being shaken down at a stormy Silverstone on Friday, with George Russell the first to get behind the wheel during its filming day. Lewis Hamilton then took over on his first appearance since losing the 2021 drivers’ championship in last year’s controversial Abu Dhabi finale.
Hamilton put to bed fears he might walk away from F1, with the action announced by the FIA on Thursday evidently satisfying both driver and team.. So after two months of uncertainty, he will fight for an eighth world championship.
But the key question is will be Mercedes W13 be up to it, with team boss Toto Wolff saying that the team is treating its latest creation with its traditional scepticism. After all, despite its success, Mercedes takes nothing for granted.
