Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has stated publicly that team-mate Nico Rosberg admitted he deliberately collided with the English driver during yesterday’s Formula 1 race in Belgium according to reports on the BBC.
The pair are known to not be the best of friends but this latest incident threatens to drag the relationship between the drivers to a new low.
On the subject of the collision that ended Hamilton’s race at Spa Hamilton stated;
“We just had a meeting about it and he basically said he did it on purpose,”
“He said he could have avoided it, but he didn’t want to. He basically said, ‘I did it to prove a point’.”
“He just came in there and said it was my fault,” Hamilton added.
Mercedes have stated that Hamilton’s assessment of that meeting is ‘broadly accurate’ and will leave Rosberg set for censure by the F1 team.
The two drivers came together on lap two and led to Hamilton suffering a tire puncture that ended his race whilst Rosberg went on to secure a second place finish that leaves him 29 points clear at the top of the standings.
Mercedes Formula 1 boss Toto Wolff reacted to the incident by stating that Rosberg’s actions were “absolutely unacceptable”
Rosberg was booed by the watching crowd during the post-race presentations.
