Two F1 drivers taking on a hybrid hypercar

Nico Rosberg has a bit of time on his hands now. Having won the Formula 1 World Championship in 2016, the German driver promptly retired, leaving his seat free for Valtteri Bottas.

Instead of giving Lewis Hamilton a hard time on track, Rosberg is spending his time as a commentator and, as you can see here, making videos for YouTube.

It might look like another video-log (or 'vlog', as the kids call it), but the video here provides a fascinating insight into how Nico Rosberg won the World Championship, and offers a peek at what life was like for Mika Hakkinen when his career kicked off.

The other thing that stands out is how passionate Mika and Nico are about the P1. From trying to work out how to slot the McLaren hypercar into EV mode, to talking about how tail-happy the car is, both drivers come across as genuine car people.

Check out the video above, and let us know if you're a Rosberg fan in the comments. Alborz, we know you like Lewis Hamilton more...
