2014 Belgium GP: Hamilton punctured by Rosberg

Lap 2: Contact between the two Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton takes his racing line and Nico Rosberg’s front wing clips his tyre, Hamilton is incredulous.

“That WAS the worst place possible for Hamilton to get a puncture. I think it was just a situation where Nico knew he had to be aggressive. David Coulthard BBC F1 pundit describes.

“I would put it down as a racing incident but on this occasion Nico has to take responsibility within the team for the contact but I don’t think there should be any punishment as far as the stewards are concerned.

“Lewis will be furious too!”

Team radio: Lewis Hamilton: “Floor is damaged, right?”

Mercedes Team radio to Lewis Hamilton: “We are thinking about a recovery strategy we need to do 15 laps on these tyres so make them last.

Hamilton responds: “The rear tyre is never going to last 15 laps.”

Mercedes: Absolutely unacceptable Rosberg Hamilton Belgium GP incident

Hamilton: I am sure Rosberg will leave here happy tonight
