1393056_10152283839499552_1360587221_nNico Rosberg says that Sergio Perez’s driving is “Definitely dangerous”, following the duo made contact during the Japanese Grand Prix.

The duo was touched at the hairpin, the consequences were Perez’s McLaren gets left-rear puncture, Rosberg gets drive-through penalty.

“With Perez, was not right what he did,” “Definitely dangerous.” The rules are clear if you brake and close the door you can’t move out again. I was there and he didn’t leave space so… said Rosberg

“But it worked out perfectly, he broke his tyre, I was through. So that was good there.”

“For sure well deserved,” said Rosberg of the penalty, “and I knew it was coming too”. It was obvious, a dangerous release so that was that and just a pity that happened and from then on it was always going to be difficult. I just dropped back so much and tried to fight through even some enjoyable battles at times.”

“After that bit of a pity that I didn’t manage to pass Gutierrez in the end but as we know it’s not so easy to pass a Sauber.”

Rosbreg said it had been “a very bad day” for Mercedes who lost more ground in the constructors’ championship after Lewis Hamilton retired early on.
