Monaco GP qualifying: Rosberg admits incident was a mistake

The pole-sitter Nico Rosberg says that, he did not purposely reason an incident in Monaco GP qualifying to refuse Lewis Hamilton pole.

During the final stage of the qualifying, the German lost breaking point, and slip down into the exit road, its resulted a yellow flag, and this cost Hamilton’s flying lap.

“I tried to make it, but turned out as I was going to hit the tyre wall, It was close but I managed to go into the escape road. Rosberg told Autosport.

“I know that I had a really good banker in there, so I tried to push that little bit more and went over the edge.”

When the media asked for a reply to Rosberg’s apology, Hamilton shrugs his shoulders and says: “I don’t have an answer to it.”

Rosberg insisted he had thought pole was lost when he went off. “I thought it was over, I thought the track would ramp up and somebody else would do a time.

“But I’m really, really happy – to be on pole at home is fantastic, it couldn’t be better.”

Asked for his thoughts on his incident denying Hamilton a pole shot, Rosberg replied: “Of course I’m sorry for what happened for Lewis.

“I didn’t know exactly where he was until I was reversing and saw him coming up. Of course that’s not great, but that’s the way it is.”
