VIDEO: No love lost between Rosberg and Hamilton at Mercedes

Aug 25, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

After a tenuous Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday, the NBCSN team certainly had plenty to talk about and dissect. Contact between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton on lap two of the race at Spa may have big implications in not only the battle for the world championship, but also for the drivers’ intra-team relationship at Mercedes.

Leigh Diffey, David Hobbs and Steve Matchett discuss all of the action from the Belgian Grand Prix in the above video, with Matchett saying that there is “no love lost” between the warring teammates as the fight for the 2014 title continues.

    Hobbs said the Rosberg contact with Hamilton was, in his view, just a racing incident and nothing more sinister……I thought Nico should have given way since Hamilton was ahead and had the line….I am a relatively new fan and would like to hear what the vet’s on this Board think…thanks

    Hobbs is clearly a Hammy fan so you can be certain that it was just a racing incident when Hobbs states it and the stewards took no action. Technically the over taking driver has to be far enough along side to “own the position”. Hammy has run Rosberg off track numerous times this year when there was no need to do so. Technically both drivers could have avoided the incident but they are racing hard with a championship at stake and thus it was in fact just a racing incident. Both of them could have been knocked out so perhaps it’s not a smart move to push quite this hard?

      What tech said,all of it,very well put.

      When Hobbs says Lewis was in a simple racing incident,take it to the bank.

    I’m no fan of Hamilton at all, but I thought that Rosberg attempted several lame moves on Hamilton early on, just before the accident, all in corners where he had no real hope of actually passing him. He also made a really stupid move when he developed the severe flat spot that caused him an additional pit stop. Really not one of Rosberg’s better races, at least the first half. With the car he has there is no reason to drive so foolishly. If he keeps that up he is likely to be his own worst enemy.

    Remember that old saying ,do not throw crap at someone standing in front of a fan ,they can duck !
    New version,do not state desire to “inflict pain ” , because the pain hurts if it rebounds on you !
