Rosberg Finally Apologises To Hamilton For Crashing Him Out Of The Belgian Grand Prix
Nico Rosberg has finally apologised to teammate Lewis Hamilton after he deliberately crashed into him in Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix (HERE).
Hamilton suffered a rear puncture following the incident which took place on lap two of the grand prix.
The Briton, who subsequently retired,finds himself trailing the German by 29 points in the race for the world championship.
Rosberg has however taken to facebook to extend his hands of reconciliation to his fellow teammate and championship rival;
"In the days since the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa, I have spent a lot of time thinking about what happened during the race and discussing it with the team.
I have already expressed my regret about the incident but, after meeting with Toto, Paddy and Lewis today, I wish to go a step further and describe it as an error of judgement on my part.
The number one rule for us as team-mates is that we must not collide but that is exactly what happened.
For that error of judgement, I apologise to Lewis and the team. I also want to say sorry to the fans who were deprived of our battle for the lead in Belgium.
Lewis and I have been given clear instructions about how we race each other.
As drivers, we have a clear responsibility to the team, the fans of the sport, our partners and Mercedes-Benz to deliver clean racing. We take that responsibility very seriously.
I look forward to concluding the season with hard, fair competition on and off track right up to the final lap of the season in Abu Dhabi."
