Rosberg: I’d say the same things again

Rosberg I'd say the same things again
Nico Rosberg does not apologize for his outburst in the wake of the Chinese Grand Prix, and states that he would “do it again” as he needed to have his say.

Rosberg had accused Hamilton, who won the race from pole position, of compromising his afternoon by not going fast enough at the front and potentially backing the second-placed German into the clutches of the chasing Ferraris.

“Maybe, because I’m standing here and have to answer all these questions,” he told reporters in Bahrain when asked whether he had ‘shot himself in the foot’.

“But other than that, no. I would do it again because I felt the need to state the facts…there was a need to discuss things after that race. Everybody said that. That’s it, I wouldn’t do anything different.”

The title rivals fought an intense and thrilling duel in Bahrain last year, with Hamilton winning following Rosberg started on pole.

Asked about the possibility of team order, Rosberg conceded they could come into play in the future.

“It’s always the same and it will not change… it’s an agreement we have that when the team’s one-two is under threat from another team then some management will be used to ensure that (1-2),” said Rosberg.

“It becomes a team effort because we want to finish 1-2 and score the most possible points. So the more annoying a Ferrari like Sebastian’s in China becomes, the more likely those measures will be used.”
