Nico Rosberg: Lewis Hamilton and I will move on

The relationship between the duo has deteriorated over the weekend, after Rosberg’s apparent error late in qualifying denied Hamilton one last chance to secure pole for the Monaco Grand Prix.

Rosberg went on to claim a second consecutive Monte Carlo win on Sunday, but he and Hamilton did not appear to be on speaking terms during the post-race formalities.

Despite the perceived ill-feeling, Rosberg believes the pair will be able to rebuild the bridges which have been severely damaged in the principality.

“We’ve had discussions and we have known each other for so long. We always sit down and discuss it and move on, and that is what we will do,” he said.

Hamilton, who was reluctant to comment on his feelings towards Rosberg, kept in touch with the German for much of Sunday’s race, but was left holding off the challenge of Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo late on when he got something in his eye, dropping off the pace as a result.

“I had quite a bit of wind coming in, I got close to Nico in one stage and I got some debris or dirt in my eye,” Hamilton explained.

“I was driving with one eye, which is virtually impossible to do.

“Through low-speed corners I had to close one eye which made it worse, but five laps to go it cleared up and I was able to stay ahead of Daniel.”
