Mercedes driver George Russell has said that he's 'going to start practising' some rather unusual poses for the 2024 Formula 1 opening credits, after some suggestions were posted on TikTok by one particular Mercedes fan.
The team had Russell watching the suggestions and giving his thoughts on each of them in a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), with the Brit proclaiming he didn't quite have the flexibility for a few of the moves.
Russell the social media king
Russell's popularity on social media has been brilliantly exploited by Mercedes' X admins in the last 12 months, with his iconic pose from last year's opening credits creating a plethora of memes.
Now, F1 fans will be waiting with bated breath for the release of the 2024 intro, to see if Russell will try something even more original.
