The battle is hotting up at Mercedes

Ferrari is expecting another closely-fought world championship contest in 2013.
Last year, no fewer than six separate teams won grands prix – a rarity in formula one – and for 2013 the regulations are not changing significantly. “The stability of the regulations is always a condition that favours greater similarity in the performance of the competitors,” team boss Stefano Domenicali is quoted by Brazil’s O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper.
An FIA spokesman has rejected F1 legend Sir Jackie Stewart’s claim that the sport is disorganised and poorly managed.
A list of the best formula one drivers of all time has overlooked Ayrton Senna for a top-three spot, and left out Fernando Alonso completely.
Italy’s Autosprint said Juan Manuel Fangio, the five-time world champion of the 50s, deserves the number one spot. He is listed ahead of runner-up Michael Schumacher, with triple world champion Sir Jackie Stewart also finishing ahead of the late and revered Senna. Jim Clark, Alain Prost, Sir Stirling Moss, Alberto Ascari and Niki Lauda are ranked fifth to ninth respectively, with reigning triple world champion Sebastian Vettel completing the top ten.
