The imminent final of the European football championships scheduled tonight between Italy and England is also heating up the spirits of the various Formula 1 teams. Inevitably, despite having the Mercedes formally ‘German flag’, the Italo-British dualism has also rekindled the rivalry between the home of the Star and the Ferrari. Unfortunately in recent seasons the red has struggled on the track to keep up with the cars of the Brackley team. However, in the headquarters of the dominant team of the last seven seasons, the rivalry with the Cavallino is still particularly strong.

To turn on the teased social on the part of Mercedes, the match between Azzurri and Tre Leoni on the Wembley stage was enough. Mercedes, in a video posted on its Twitter profile, in fact had fun sticking, next to a coat of arms of the Cavallino on a red background, the badge of the national football team of His Majesty, complete with the writing ‘It’s coming home’, the ‘mantra’ choir that accompanies the Southgate national team in this European ride. In the morning, the Maranello team had settled for a more traditional one “Forza Azzurri”, launching the challenge – together with AlphaTauri – to the three ‘officially’ British teams: McLaren, Williams and Aston Martin.
