Rosberg apologises again

Rosberg apologises again

Nico Rosberg has done a lot of apologising recently with the German confirming he has said sorry to "Lewis Hamilton, the team and fans" after the Belgian GP.

The Mercedes bosses held a team meeting with Rosberg and Hamilton at Brackley on Friday following the controversial race at Spa when the two made contact.

In a statement, Merc confirmed that "Nico acknowledged his responsibility for the contact that occurred on lap two of the Belgian Grand Prix and apologised for this error of judgement.

"Suitable disciplinary measures have been taken for the incident."

Rosberg has now also taken to Facebook to explain his side of the story.

"In the days since the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa, I have spent a lot of time thinking about what happened during the race and discussing it with the team," he said on his official page.

"I have already expressed my regret about the incident but, after meeting with Toto, Paddy and Lewis today, I wish to go a step further and describe it as an error of judgement on my part.

"The number one rule for us as team-mates is that we must not collide but that is exactly what happened.

"For that error of judgement, I apologise to Lewis and the team. I also want to say sorry to the fans who were deprived of our battle for the lead in Belgium.

"Lewis and I have been given clear instructions about how we race each other.

"As drivers, we have a clear responsibility to the team, the fans of the sport, our partners and Mercedes-Benz to deliver clean racing. We take that responsibility very seriously.

"I look forward to concluding the season with hard, fair competition on and off track right up to the final lap of the season in Abu Dhabi."
