Do you think you have what it takes to drive a Formula 1 car for Mercedes?

Would you like to drive a very expensive car very, very quickly?

Well after Nico Rosberg's surprise exit from the sport, Mercedes have gone old school and put an advert in a magazine looking for a new driver!

The advert says the team are looking for a driver who has a "proven track record in skills including steering, braking and, in particular, accelerating."
