There have been many opinions about the Lewis Hamilton-Nico Rosberg incident at Spa on Sunday, most of them going against the German.
To recap, on Lap 2 of the Belgian Grand Prix, Rosberg clipped teammate Hamilton’s left rear tire and cause a flat while also breaking his front wing. Rosberg later told the team that he stood his ground to prove a point.
While Rosberg recovered from a broken front wing to finish second Hamilton retired with a few laps to go. Rosberg now has a 29-point lead on Hamilton in the championship standings.
In my opinion, David Coulthard does the best job of telling the whole story of the internal team politics of the situation.
There is also really good analysis from Mark Hughes on why what Rosberg did was just hard racing.
On the other hand, Jenson Button is highly critical of Rosberg, saying that if the German saw it on TV, he “would look at it, and say, ‘What was I thinking?’”
