Nico Rosberg took the current "selfie" craze to a new level at the weekend as he filmed himself behind the wheel of Juan Manuel Fangio's Mercedes W196 at Hockenheim.

Rosberg used his opportunity behind the wheel to give fans a unique glimpse from inside one of F1's most famous and iconic cars. Rosberg posted the video on his Twitter account, which involved him picking up his camera at several different points around the circuit - though it is not something ESPNF1 suggests recreating at home.

The W196 Silver Arrows was utterly dominant for the two years it was in Formula One, with Fangio winning the world title in both 1954 and 1955. Out of 12 F1 races it entered, the W196 won nine, including Stirling Moss' maiden victory at the 1955 British Grand Prix.
