In the latest F1 Social Check, McLaren have shown their new car coming out on track for the first time while Mercedes and AlphaTauri have shown us on-board footage of their 2020 challengers.

Before catching a flight to Barcelona for winter testing next week, Williams driver George Russell had a busy day at the team's factory in Grove. Watch the young Brit, who turned 22 years old yesterday, as he does his seat fitting and explains the many functions of an F1 steering wheel.
