Jordan: Merc bosses are rudderless

BBC F1 analyst Eddie Jordan believes Mercedes' team bosses are to blame for the in-fighting between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton.


The two Mercedes drivers' relationship hit another low in Belgium over the weekend when Rosberg crashed into his Hamilton, ultimately ending his team-mate's race.

Hamilton later declared that the German deliberately crashed into him "to make a point", but Rosberg has denied it.

Mercedes team bosses Toto Wolff and Niki Lauda were both left furious by the incident, describing it as unacceptable, but Jordan believes the duo along with Paddy Lowe are at fault.

"I blame the team," he told TalkSPORT's Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

"They say they let the drivers race but they don't because at Hungary, the previous race, Rosberg was told he could pass Hamilton, Hamilton was told to let him go and he didn't let him go. How can you say you don't have team orders but you actually do? It's a nonsense.

"I remember when Ross Brawn, who has won seven World Championships at least in his days at Benetton and at Ferrari with Michael Schumacher, said to Rosberg in Malaysia last year 'no, you cannot pass Lewis'.

"If Ross Brawn was there in that team it would be a different show. They would have finished first and second [at the Belgian Grand Prix].

"It's weak. The guys there are really good guys, but they don't have the experience and they don't have Ross Brawn and, at the moment, they are rudderless.

"They are being run by two drivers who are like spoilt kids and are doing what they want to do."
