Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes, Circuito de Jerez, 2015

A team having its drivers snap a selfie using their telephone sponsor’s product has been in fashion since cameraphones first appeared – as Lewis Hamilton will remember from his first Formula One season eight years ago.

He had a few ups and downs with current team mate and childhood friend Nico Rosberg last year. But what will 2015 have in store for the pair who are likely to have the most competitive car of the year at their dispoal?

Post your caption for this picture in the comments and a selection of the best will appear in a future edition of the F1 Fanatic round-up.
