Despite the huge uproar of teams and fans alike over the implementation of the new F1 rules, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg seem to just have a good laugh about it. A recent Mercedes advertisement released a couple of hours ago in YouTube by Mercedes AMG Petronas shows its two drivers mock the new F1 regulations by playing dumb over it.
The video is quite funny since it reflects most of the F1 community’s view over the new F1 rules concerning the engine, scoring and the barrage of other technical changes taking place this season.
Among the things mocked in the video are the smaller engine, penalties imposed to drivers, the new pole trophy as well as the controversial double points in the last races of the season.
The Mercedes advertisement shows Hamilton and Rosberg getting surprised over the smaller engine wherein the latter commented that his first car had more than that.
Rosberg also seems to welcome the idea of penalty points as he said that Germans are good with penalties (referencing to the Germans’ major wins in football which involved penalty kicks). Then, there’s his idea of a pole trophy making gestures that it is actually a trophy shaped like a pole.
The last part takes a shot over the hot issue over the double points wherein the German driver called it “rubbish”.

Here is the said video titled, “Lewis & Nico: Uncut & Off the Record”:
Personally, I find the video very funny because most of the things that the drivers said are true.
