Video: Rosberg rejects Hamilton’s version of post-race events

Nico Rosberg has released a short video in which he rejects claims made by his Mercedes team-mate that he admitted to deliberately crashing into him during the Belgian Grand Prix.

Hamilton told journalists on Sunday evening that his team-mate had admitted in a post-race debrief that he had intentionally made contact with him at Les Combes during the second lap of the race.

However, Rosberg has countered these claims in his regular post-race video review series, which can be seen below.

“I have been told what Lewis said in the press – and the way he has stated his version of the events,” said Rosberg. “But all I can say is that my view of the events are very different.”
