Ste­wart’s blast

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish rac­ing leg­end Sir Jackie Ste­wart has sided with Nico Ros­berg af­ter the first-lap col­li­sion in Spain with Lewis Hamil­ton, claim­ing Hamil­ton needs a dif­fer­ent ap­proach to the first lap of races. Three-time world cham­pion Ste­wart said af­ter the two Mercedes col­lided in the last race: “Lewis was to blame. It’s un­ac­cept­able for driv­ers with ex­pe­ri­ence to have an ac­ci­dent on the first lap, none of the big guys ever did that. You don’t see Juan Manuel Fan­gio, Sir Stir­ling Moss, Jim Clark do that. A ma­jor as­set of driv­ers is their mind man­age­ment, I learned to re­move emo­tion from my whole body to head and that’s why I al­ways won my races in the first five laps. I hope Lewis has learned a les­son.”
