Nico Rosberg insists Lewis Hamilton’s foul-mouthed rant at his Mercedes team was ‘completely understandable’ – after after the seven-time champion said their pit stop strategy ‘f***ing screwed’ him out of a win at the Dutch Grand Prix

Nico Rosberg has defended his former team-mate Lewis Hamilton for his rant at his Mercedes team after he felt he was ‘screwed’ out of a podium finish at the Dutch Grand Prix. Speaking to Sky Germany after the race, Rosberg said: ‘They decided to take the risk with Lewis, left him out to have a chance of winning. ‘If you do that with George, he definitely wouldn’t win. Hamilton was foul-mouthed towards his team over his radio, saying they ‘f****** screwed’ him out of victory at the Dutch GP. ‘First he gets overtaken and loses the win, then his team-mate flies by,’ he said. ‘I don’t even remember what I said,’ Hamilton said.
