World champions Mercedes sent one of their F1 cars to the home of the terminally ill child who Lewis Hamilton described as his Spanish GP victory inspiration.
Five-year-old Harry Shaw, who has a rare form of bone cancer, sent Hamilton a good-luck video message on race day morning ahead of the five-time champion's win at Barcelona on Sunday.
And on Monday, Mercedes dispatched their car to the Shaw family home with Harry's father, James, saying it had "provided us with a big boost, and a big smile" at a "tremendously difficult time in our lives".
Harry was also shown Hamilton's winner's trophy from the race.
Speaking to Sky Sports F1 after claiming victory on Sunday, Hamilton had said: "Yesterday was a difficult day, but I arrived today and I got this great message from this young kid called Harry and he just became my spirit, that was my inspiration.
"When I woke up this morning, I was a bit lost and kind of 'how's today going to go?' and then I saw that message and I was like 'I see you Harry, I've got you'.
"I want to dedicate this one to Harry. If you're watching, sending you the love."
