Lewis Hamilton has been at the Mercedes factory this week as the team builds up to the new Formula 1 season.
Hamilton’s participation this year remains in some doubt following the controversial end to the 2021 campaign.
But the seven-time champion has been at the Mercedes F1 factory on Monday and Tuesday this week completing pre-season tasks required if he does race.
He also shared some videos of himself doing physical training and preparation.
Hamilton’s movements in recent days show that he is preparing for the F1 season as he would any other – but that should not be interpreted as a confirmation that he will race this year.
The 37-year-old is waiting on the outcome of the inquiry into last season’s final race before making a final decision on his commitment to F1 this year.
Race director Michael Masi failed to follow the rules correctly in administering a late-race safety-car period, and his actions led directly to Hamilton losing the championship to Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.
Hamilton has not spoken publicly since the race, other than a brief message on social media last weekend in which he said: “I’ve been gone. Now I’m back.”
