Nico’s pain

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Nico Ros­berg has ad­mit­ted it felt “very painful” af­ter be­ing or­dered to let Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamil­ton through in Monaco. Ros­berg was told to let Hamil­ton through early on as he strug­gled to get his brakes up to tem­per­a­ture in the wet con­di­tions. Ros­berg fell to sev­enth while Hamil­ton went on to win. The cham­pi­onship leader said: “It’s a rule we’ve had for some years now and it was pretty damn ob­vi­ous at the time that I wasn’t go­ing to fight for the win, so I had to give Lewis the chance to. It was very painful to get a call like that, but eas­ily un­der­stand­able.”
