The inter-team rivalry at Mercedes is set to continue this weekend in China.

With Mercedes apparent performance advantage over the rest of the field, the early stages of the 2014 Formula One World Championship look set to be dominated by the team of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

The possibility of having two team-mates going wheel-to-wheel at every race track around the world is tantalising.

If the F1 spectators get any form of a repeat of the race in Bahrain they will be in for a treat.

But whilst it’s entertaining, inside the cockpit, it’s a constant battle.

Rosberg has taken one race win, whilst Hamilton has taken two. However the big difference in points is that German Rosberg finished in second place behind Hamilton on both occasions the Brit stood on the top step of the podium. Whilst when Rosberg was victorious in Australia, Hamilton failed to finish due to a mechanical problem.

That has left Hamilton looking for an ‘edge’ in a race of catch-up.

‘You are always trying to get that edge, It’s not just about arriving and working hard, it’s about all the steps from now until the next race, all the decisions you make, the things in your life. They all add up as to where you are mentally. Hamilton told the BBC.

‘He’s already said he’s going for it at the next race, so I have to make sure the work goes in.

‘I’m still 11 points behind after two awesome races, so I have to stick at it because he’s had a win and two seconds, a track record that so far is better than mine.’
