Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton has become so "involved" with his new Mercedes team he is even checking that sponsors' stickers are placed properly on his car.

Team chief Ross Brawn said Hamilton's eye for detail is exactly what Merc want, as they expect him to play a vital role in driving the under-performing squad forward, reports The Sun.

Following Formula One's first test session of 2013, Brawn said Hamilton is clearly a very talented driver. He called the Brit "very simple, very straightforward".

Brawn admitted it might take more time for Hamilton to gel with Mercedes engineers to form a common plan to develop the car. But the boss added that the F1 ace is a person who enjoys being involved at all levels, which is a great motivation for the team. (ANI)
