The Mercedes AMG F1 Team have warned their drivers that they must continue to work together and to share technical data. Despite the fact that we are only three Grand Prix into the 2014 season, the pair are out on their own at the top of the championship standings with Nico Rosberg leading the Mercedes charge on 61 point's, eleven ahead of team mate Lewis Hamilton.
The Brackley based outfits motorsport boss Toto Wolff have stated:
'The open information policy is something that we will always have, it's a rule that both sides of the garage are open and transparent with each other'.

Mercedes have completely dominated the opening three Grand Prix of the season with Nico Rosberg winning the opening race and finishing second in Malaysia and last weekend in Bahrain. Meanwhile Lewis Hamilton failed to finish the Australian Grand Prix while winning in Malaysia and last time out in Bahrain.

The team have two of the best driver's in Formula One at this point and the pair have been compared to the legendary partnership of Ayrton Senna and the professor, Alain Prost who drove for McLaren during the team's dominant period in Formula One as that pairing won the championship from 1988-1991.

Following his win in Bahrain, Lewis Hamilton has now got 24 career wins. Following his pole position in Malaysia at the end of March, Hamilton has now equalled the long standing British record of 33 pole position which has been held by Formula One legend Jim Clarke.
