Lewis Hamilton has spoken to Ron Dennis, his former team principal and mentor at McLaren, for the first time since his switch to Mercedes was announced last month.

Hamilton, who has signed a three-year deal to drive for the German manufacturer from next year, said he visited the McLaren factory in Woking last Friday. Hamilton said there was no farewell speech as he would wait until the season's end.

But he added: "I spoke to Ron. Me and Ron, we're planning to meet up, I think it's in Abu Dhabi. We'll go for dinner, have a good chat."
