Avoid collision at T2 that lost me the race – Rosberg

The Pole sitter Nico Rosberg says that, he had to avoid a collision with his team mate Lewis Hamilton at the start on the exit of Turn 2 and that incident cost his Japanese GP victory.

The German keep Pole advantage only into Turn 2 before he was forced out by Hamilton, ran wide and he move down to fourth. Nico race behind the Ferrari and Williams during the early stages of the race, and he comeback strongly after clever pit strategy to overcome both Bottas and Vettel.

“I’ve not seen it on TV, but it was close,” said Rosberg. “I had to avoid a collision, but it’s difficult to comment.

“The car is really back to its best – it was a pity to lose out at the start.

“It was a battle round Turn 1 and 2, and it got very close on the exit of Turn 2 so I had to back out of it and that lost me the race.

“Lewis just got a better start. In Turn 2 he had the inside and he made it stick.”

Race winner Lewis Hamilton said he suffered with understeer as the two Mercedes fought over the lead.

“I didn’t feel it was particularly that close,” said the winner. “The inside line is the inside line so it was my corner.

“We were very close – I was understeering, running out of grip. I imagine Nico ran out of road but that is what happens when you’re on the outside.”
