"I've replaced it now with a big star and no one can take that away. The star is ours!"

A FIFA spokesman confirmed Thursday's news, but Auto Motor und Sport reports that there was another complainant behind the story -- Hyundai.

Rosberg drives for Mercedes, but affiliation between the world cup and a car manufacturer is promised exclusively to Hyundai, the official sponsor.

Indeed, Mercedes made clear its delight with Germany's world cup win on Thursday with a huge message on its F1 motor home, reading "Das Beste" and congratulating the national football team on its "Title win".

But no mention was made of the world cup itself, or its protected marks.
