F1 » Rosberg disputes Hamilton claims


@ Mark Its been a while, but having just re-watched the footage from Schumi vs Hill and to my mind the differences assuming we are comparing Schumacher to Lewis (racing line) and Hill to Nico (inside line) are as follows. Schumi vs Hill, On the approach to the corner Hill took the inside line. Schumacher then squeezed Hill off the circuit as they approached the apex of the corner. At the point of contact Hill actually appeared to have two wheels the wrong side of the kerb - Hill literally ran out of road, if he had given Schumacher more room in the lateral direction he would have hit the wall. Lewis vs Nico, Nico had at least half a cars width of track available that he could have and should have occupied to prevent an accident occurring. This would not have exceeded the track limits. To summarise, Schumacher not only didn't give Hill room, he squeezed him off the circuit completely. Lewis gave Nico ample room (at point of contact at least one and a half cars width), Nico simply ch

Elswagger: @Welshie What Toto said, “Nico said he could have avoided it but didn’t to prove a point” Is essentially no different that Hamilton saying he did it on purpose, because how can you NOT purposely avoid a collision and at the same time NOT cause a collision deliberatly. Keeping things like this internal only promotes deep suspicion, why can’t Rosberg see that? Nobody in their right mind trusts internal investigations and rightly so. Transparency is everything. If you want respect, make your case out in the public domain where it is exposed for all to see and then defend it. If Hamilton hadn’t come out and said what happened in that meeting none of us would be any the wiser, and Rosberg would still have his Mr Nice Guy veneer suitably intact. As it stands, he has been exposed and is doing everything in his power to lessen the damage.
Well said!

I don't get all this Lewis should have left more room for Nico BS. Well I do, to some people if he walked on water they would say its because he couldn't swim, if he cured famine across the world they would moan about over population and so on. If you pause the onboard video at the point of contact Nico had at least half a cars width of track to his left and his steering wheel angle was at least 90 degrees in the direction of Hamiltons car. That ment Lewis was leaving approximatelly a car and a halfs width for Nico to fit into, and Nico still felt the need to turn into him! How much more room should he have left and why?? Reverse the roles, if you would still be calling for Lewis' head, your opinion is null and void.

In the right turn? (i,e, first turn at Les Combe after the straight?). Lewis was on the inside line on the Kerb. Leaving any more room would have resulted in him leaving the track (on the right hand side) - which is a black and white violation of the rules. They hadn't made the left turn (which I assume you are referring too) when the two made contact, at that point Nico had a generous half cars width of track to his left that he could have and really should have positioned his car into. If Nico had been at the boundary of the track it would be a different matter. But he wasn't, so its not. Nico subsequently caused an avoidable incident. Reverse the roles, pretend Nico is Lewis and Lewis is Nico in that situation. Does your view point still stand? Mine does.

physics:
TenaciousC: You mistake me for someone that is a fan of either. Neither do I have a vendetta against either driver. I loved that the incident happened as Dan Ricciardo was able to capitalise!! The more this season goes on, the more I like the lad! The contact at best occurred at the transition between the two corners. To me it is still the right hand corner and I base this on Nico's steering angle (can't see Lewis'). The pair were nowhere near the apex of the left turn when contact was made. Nico had sufficient track available to position his car so he would avoid an incident. Subsequently, in my opinion the blame lies at Nico's feet.
I am also glad for Dan, if he can manage to top at least one of the mercs drivers it will be an epic rookie season!
I concur! Fingers crossed he crashes the party :) C'mon Dan!
