Video message from massively frustrated Rosberg after Canadian GP

Championship leader Nico Rosberg admits he was “massively frustrated” with Lewis Hamilton immediately after his Mercedes teammate forced him wide at the start of the Canadian Grand Prix.

Hamilton made another poor start and Sebastian Vettel jumped into the lead, following Hamilton was on the inside line into Turn 1 with Rosberg on the outside into the left-hander. Hamilton push hard at the exit of the turn 1, and Brit forcing Rosberg to take to the runoff area and drop to ninth.

Finally, Rosberg recovered, endured a slow puncture, a lack of fuel and another late off-track skirmish to finish fifth.

“It was difficult with fuel,” Rosberg said following the race. “I nearly ran out of fuel –- that’s why I couldn’t really attack Max (Verstappen) properly and he did a very good job to defend.”

In his first four races, he scored 100 points to move 43 clear at the top of the championship.

In the three that followed, he has scored 16 and now leads his teammate by only nine points.
