List of incidents between Hamilton and Rosberg

The Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg ‘ collided again in Austria – but it was just the latest in a long list of clashes between them.

2012 Bahrain Grand Prix – On the straight before turn 4 Rosberg desperately forced Hamilton wide and off-road but could not hold Hamilton back from taking the position. The incident was to be looked at after the race. Replays showed Hamilton’s disappointment as he shook his head while waiting to be released. The stewards had a look at the incident after the race but there was no sanction from them.

2014 Monaco Grand Prix – In qualifying for the Monaco GP, Rosberg, already on provisional pole, went straight on at Mirabeau on his final lap, forcing the yellow flags to come out which denied Hamilton the chance to set a faster lap time. Rosberg went on to win the race the following day from a fuming Hamilton who compared it to the rivalry of Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna.

2014 Hungarian Grand Prix – Hamilton was given team orders to let Rosberg past, as Rosberg was on the softer tyre and had one more stop to make, while Hamilton was on a two stop strategy and did not have to pit again. However, Hamilton did not concede the place, replying on the radio: “I’m not slowing down for Nico. If he gets close enough to overtake, he can overtake me

2014 Belgian Grand Prix – On lap two, Hamilton led with Rosberg second. As they approached the Les Combes chicane, Rosberg tried to go round the outside of Hamilton but clipped his left rear tyre. The Brit got a puncture and eventually retired while Rosberg suffered front wing damage before finishing second.

2015 American Grand Prix – While the rain had stopped come race time, the track was still wet and slippery and all drivers opted to start on intermediate tyres. Turn one at the start of the race; Hamilton pushed Rosberg out wide with the German losing several places as a result while Hamilton kept the lead. Mercedes’ non-executive chairman Lauda said Hamilton “kicked Rosberg off”, finally Hamilton finished on top podium ahead of Rosberg.

2016 Spanish Grand Prix – Rosberg overtook pole-sitter Hamilton into the turn one. Heading towards turn three, the Brit shows his teammate slowing due to being in the wrong engine setting, and went for the inside. Rosberg close the room and forced Hamilton onto the grass where he lost control and crashed, backwards, into the German sending both into the gravel and its resulted double DNF for Mercedes.

2016 Austrian Grand Prix – The ultimate lap of the race, Hamilton tried to go round the outside of leader Rosberg who had brake trouble. The duo collided, Hamilton won after running off the track and coming back to pass a limping Rosberg who ended up trailing home fourth with a broken front wing – who later got a 10 second penalty and two penalty points.
