This weekend was a nail-biting one as it played host to the Euro 2020 final between Italy and England.

After a two-week break following the Austrian Grand Prix, many people on the paddock got the opportunity to watch the match.

This even resulted in bantering between people supporting opposing teams in the match.

When there are pranks being played, one can expect Mercedes to be involved for sure. This is exactly what happened this time also.

Mercedes vs Ferrari

Just before the Euro 2020 fixture, Mercedes laid siege against the Italian team. They took a dig against Ferrari by posting a video on their Twitter handle.

In the same handle, they asked their fans โ€œItโ€™s coming Rome or itโ€™s coming home, what do you think?โ€

However, the tweet did not really age well.

This comes after the Azzurri came from behind in both normal time and penalties to win their second European championship.

As a result, the Maranello-based team took the opportunity to strike back at the Silver Arrows.

โ€œItโ€™s coming Rome, actually, it just arrived!โ€ Ferrari replied.

Mercedes looking to redeem themselves in Silverstone

Unfortunately, Mercedes have not been having the best time, even on the F1 paddock.

Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time world champion has not won a race in the last five races.

The last time the Brit faced a similar situation was back in 2016. It was the year when his teammate, Nico Rosberg beat him and won the championship title.

The next race will take us to Silverstone, Hamilton’s home turf where he will be seeking to compensate for his losses.

However, with Red Bull driver Max Verstappen leading the pack with his dominating form, Hamilton can expect a difficult battle for the title.

Mercedes have a solid record for the races in Silverstone having won almost every race since 2013, except the 2018 season.

Red Bull, however, last won in Silverstone back in 2012 and will be putting up a strong fight.
