Lewis Hamilton had been summoned to see the stewards following Mercedes GP’s Nico Rosberg was left furious that he had been blocked on his final run in qualifying.

Rosberg says after the qualifying Lewis Hamilton was slowing down in the last curve and he start quickest lap behind him which made it impossible to improve his time.

Hamilton did secured lap and set second on the grid, at the same time as Rosberg was left regret what might have been – consequences was the German will start from sixth on the grid tomorrow race.

Talking about how much Hamilton’s situation had cost him, Rosberg told Autosport “It had a big impact. But that’s beside the point really. The point is that there is a rule, stating very clearly that you are not allowed to slow down in those last couple of corners unnecessarily. That is the rule, it is very clear, because it is dangerous.

“In this case, me and [Pastor] Maldonado were arriving flat out, and Lewis was driving extremely slowly all of a sudden. It’s just a very dangerous situation, and that’s what the rule is there for.

“At the same time, as a side point, it did ruin my lap because I started the lap stuck behind him.”

“Nico had a good balance and was looking as if he could challenge for the front row,” he said. “And he got caught up with Lewis.

“He had Maldonado behind him so he was conscious of making sure he gave Maldonado clearance to finish his lap, and Lewis backed him up into Maldonado. So that was the end of our qualifying.”
