F1 Belgian Grand Prix: Rosberg disputes Hamilton claims

Nico Rosberg says he has a “very different” view of what happened in the Mercedes team meeting following the Belgian Grand Prix to that of team-mate Lewis Hamilton
Nico Rosberg says he has a “very different” view of what happened in the Mercedes team meeting following the Belgian Grand Prix to that of team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton claimed that Rosberg had admitted in the meeting that he deliberately allowed a collision to happen between the two drivers, with Hamilton getting a puncture on the second lap which eventually led to his retirement.

Despite team boss Toto Wolff appearing to agree with Hamilton's version of events that Rosberg had been looking “to make a point”, Rosberg said in his video blog that he disagreed with Hamilton's comments but was not willing to give details on his perspective.

“I've been told what Lewis said in the press and the way he has stated his version of the events,” Rosberg said. “All I can say is my view of the events are very different, but the thing is it's just better that I don't now give all the details of my opinion and things like that. I hope you respect that. I prefer to just keep it internal.”

I think if Lewis had just sucked it up and kept it internal, we would feel greater sympathy for him, but the contrast between how they have behaved since leaves me almost feeling sorry for Nico as being maligned for what the Stewards considered was a racing incident.

Nico once again showing he is here to race, not to be a a media wonder boy, or to win popularity contests. I like how he step up, and is giving the "already champion" lewis a real run for his money. Funny also how Hamilton was saying he "had it harder" than Nico, and was "hungrier", when that's not what is showing, with him running to the big bully press whenever he can, while Nico is showing ruthlessness and resolve on the track.
