After five years of being partnered with Valtteri Bottas, Lewis Hamilton now has a new younger team-mate – George Russell.
Since the young Briton has been with Mercedes for his whole junior career, Lewis says it was not hard to integrate him in the team.
“In terms of George joining, he was one of the younger drivers,” Hamilton said.
“He would sit behind in debriefs and engineering so he knows the process, and the lay of the land here. He comes in and slots in, he knows what to expect.

“And from my side, I’ve just tried to be as welcoming and include him – trying to communicate a lot about the car, what can I test, what can you test to get us to point A?
“I just try to work with him as I did with Valtteri. When you add new people, it takes time to all get into the rhythm, but I think he’s done an amazing job.
“We got into a decent rhythm quite early on, and we’re continuing to work out any kinks there to continue to be on that rhythm,” Lewis concluded.
