Although the former team-mates were friendships in their early racing
days, their intra-teams battles at Mercedes put paid to that.
Mind games off the track and clashes on it meant Rosberg and Hamilton

"We were very good friends in the past," he told the German broadcaster ZDF.
"It can happen again in the future. We're not rivals anymore, I'm completely out of it, so I don't see why we could not get along well after some time."
But, he added, "We're not at that point yet."
