[VIDEO] New Mercedes advert plays on Rosberg-Hamilton rivalry

Hamilton & Rosberg

A new Mercedes-Benz advert starring Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg has continued the marque's tradition for poking fun at their own in-team rivalries.

However it remains in the shadow of Mercedes' classic 2007 advert (below), which played upon the rivalry between Hamilton and his then-McLaren team-mate Fernando Alonso. This relationship would quickly develop into a fierce and sometimes bitter rivalry, making the advert all the more amusing seven years on.
