Rosberg unhappy with Hamilton


Nico Rosberg was unhappy with Lewis Hamilton after the Mercedes team-mates banged wheels on the opening lap of the Canadian Grand Prix but accepted the manoeuvre was fair.

Rosberg started alongside Hamilton on the front row of the grid but he found himself down in ninth place after he was forced on to the grass when he made contact with Hamilton in the rush down to turn one at the Gilles-Villeneuve Circuit.

A spin on the penultimate lap ended his hopes of a podium finish with the German eventually taking fifth.

It was a difficult afternoon for the German and he admitted he was 'massively p***** off' with Hamilton, who is now just nine points behind his team-mate in the drivers' championship.

"I was very p***** off in the moment," said Rosberg. "Lewis had a really bad start, mine was decent, and Vettel had a super start. It was a hard manoeuvre from Lewis but that is racing and I need to do a better job next time.

"I lost a lot of places, that cost me the race, and after that I fought back and was on course for the podium until I got a puncture.

"Fifth place is a big disappointment as our car was awesome today and obviously it was good enough to fight for the win."
