Head of Mercedes Benz Motorsport Toto Wolff has confirmed to Sky Sports F1 HD that the atmosphere inside the team is tense.
Mercedes who have already wrapped up their third constructors championship in a row have both of their drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg in the fight for the championship with Rosberg heading into today’s race with a 26 point advantage in the battle against Hamilton.
It has been a long season and Rosberg can win the championship today if he wins the race and Hamilton finishes in tenth place or lower or fails to finish the race.
Rosberg did his chances of a strong result today as he will start the race on the front row alongside his team mate Lewis Hamilton.
It is a very long run down to turn one where absolutely anything can and often does.
