Nico Rosberg says his relationship with team-mate Lewis Hamilton is relaxed at present but "can change very quickly".

Hamilton and Rosberg had a number of flashpoint as the fought for the title in 2014, with the pair even colliding at Spa before Hamilton took the championship at the final round. With the atmosphere appearing more calm so far this season, Rosberg says the two are on good terms but admits it will not take much to change the situation.

"The [tense flashpoints] are just between the two drivers, otherwise everything is the same," Rosberg told F1i at the launch of the Petronas flagship workshop in Hamburg. "The atmosphere was great last year and it is again this year. It’s just more relaxed at the moment between the two of us, but it can change very quickly."

And Rosberg says there has been no change in the way he and Hamilton work together despite Ferrari emerging as a threat early in the season.

"No. We’ve always had a certain amount of commitment towards the team – to help move us all forward, and that’s still the same. It’s just great to see again that when the team came under pressure from Ferrari we’ve done better than everybody else; we’ve moved away.

"It’s fantastic the level that we’re at. Absolutely the best in every area – even aerodynamics; we’re the best team, where some years ago we were not. In every area we’re the best."
