He may have a Greek flag adorning the window of his Persson-run Mercedes C-Class but German residing Alex Margaritis will certainly have one eye on his adopted country as they embark on a quest to reach the World Cup semi-final.

To celebrate Germany's success in the tournament so far, Margaritis will compete in a uniquely liveried Mercedes at Brands Hatch with his usual black paint job being swapped for a rather more football inspired design.

With several footballs printed onto his car, Margaritis' car will undoubtedly prove on the biggest draws for the Brands Hatch crowd who will no doubt be looking forward to England's game against Portugal on the Saturday.

Still, with the majority of the Mercedes team being German, the team will be hoping they can celebrate more than a DTM victory come the end of the weekend when the football squad take on the mighty Argentina on Friday.
