The internal rivalry between Mercedes GP Petronas drivers Nico Rosberg and the legendary Michael Schumacher is famous. They race almost as hard against each other as they do everyone else on the track, and exist in a world of tense equilibrium between teammates' friendly competition and bitter rivalry.
Mercedes-Benz has released a new clip that makes light of the rivalry while delivering a sharp message about this year's focus. After Rosberg and Schumacher go back and forth, each ordering the other a progressively expensive and more impressive bottle of champagne, Mika Häkkinen shows up to focus the pair.
The Finnish F1 legend orders both drivers a Red Bull, offering a not-so-subtle clue as to who Merc's gunning for this year. Webber and Vettel, you have been warned. Watch it all after the jump.
