Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg had a laugh over Formula One’s new regulations in the last video clip released by Mercedes.

Joking about the new rules, the Mercedes duo – who have been tipped for success this season – had a go at the new engine 1.6-litre V6 turbocharged engines.

“My engine is 1.6… what?” Hamilton asks in surprise.

Rosberg’s response: “My first car had more than that!”

As for the penalty points, German driver Rosberg had a dig at the English football fans.

“As you English people know, we’re very good with penalties so no problems there… I’m German,” he said.

The pole position trophy and the “rubbish” new double points rule were also given air time.
