Rosberg: Hamilton did a really hard racing manoeuvre

Pole sitter Lewis Hamilton made an another poor start and he involved a side-by-side light contact with team-mate Nico Rosberg at Turn 1, following the incident the championship leader forced on to the grass and rejoining the field in a distant 10th.

Following the race Rosberg has explained that, Hamilton’s turn one defence in the Canadian GP as a “really hard racing manoeuvre”, finally the German finished fifth behind Max Verstappen.

“Sebastian Vettel had a great start, I had a decent one and Lewis had a really bad one,” Rosberg told Sky F1.

“In Barcelona, I went round the outside of Lewis and it worked out really well, I went for the same one again today and he did a really hard, racing manoeuvre.

“We touched and I was off and that’s it. It didn’t work out, I was very p***** off in that moment but that’s racing in the end and it’s my job to make sure I’m in front after a battle like that next time.

“Of course that was very costly for me because I lost a lot of places.From then it was an uphill battle trying to fight back. We also nearly run out of fuel which is why I couldn’t attack Max, though he did a very good job at the end.

“Then I had to drop back, try again, drop back, try again. In the end it went completely pear-shaped. Frustrating race, of course.”
