F1 Canadian Grand Prix: Hamilton: Things with Rosberg never better

Lewis Hamilton says the relationship at Mercedes between himself and Nico Rosberg has “never been better”
Lewis Hamilton says the relationship at Mercedes between himself and Nico Rosberg has “never been better”.

Following the fallout between the two drivers in Monaco, Hamilton claimed that he and Rosberg were “not friends, but colleagues”. However, Hamilton sent out a tweet between races to say that he and his team-mate had spoken and were “still friends”.

Asked by Crash.net in Montreal if there had been any need to clear the air with the team and if the two drivers have been handled differently since Monaco, Hamilton replied: "There was no difference.

“Collectively we spoke with the team, and then we did so individually, and in the team nothing has changed. The team has done a great job in supporting us, with the way it's run with Paddy [Lowe] and Toto [Wolff], their support for both of us has been great.

"We're now full steam ahead, we had dinner with the team yesterday, and things have never been better. We're just going from strength to strength.

"People have ups and downs. It's no different to any other experience Nico and I have had in all the years we've been racing together. We move on, we're pushing forward, there's a long, long way to go in the season, and I'm looking forward to that battle."

And Hamilton also said the tweet he had sent out meant that the tension since Monaco is now behind the two drivers for good.

"I sent the message, we spoke after the race. Just like friends, we have our ups and downs, we've known each other for a long, long time. It's done and dusted.

"We're looking forward to working together to try and help this team win the constructors' championship."
