Lewis Hamilton play-down the latest reports that he crack friendship with Nico Rosberg by revealing the Mercedes duo have held talks

In this season all six races Mercedes duo dominating and most recently Rosberg took top podium at the Monaco GP and regain drivers’ standings top position from Hamilton following taking pole in a controversial qualifying session.

Post-qualifying investigation confirms Nico not made any wrongdoing in running off the circuit and triggering yellow flags, Hamilton failed to back his team-mate in his post-session interviews and then, after finishing second to Rosberg again on race day, told Sky F1 “we’re not friends, we’re colleagues”.

Today Hamilton revealed via his social media account that he has held talks with the German about their relationship.

Hamilton posted the picture below and wrote: “We’ve been friends a long time & as friends we have our ups & downs. Today we spoke & we’re cool, still friends #noproblem”

Mercedes’ non-executive chairman Niki Lauda had predicted after the race that the Briton would soon move on from his frustration with the weekend’s events.

“I’m sure that Lewis will overcome this after one night’s sleep,” Lauda told Sky F1.

“The tension is building up, no question, but we have to make sure the tension doesn’t get out of hand,” Lauda added.

“I know with my experience and with our drivers in the past when it gets out of hand. So if they don’t say hello in the morning anymore to each other, then I think it’s out of hand.”
