Nico Rosberg believes his two incidents in the Bahrain GP were “good racing” and not something punishable by the stewards.

The Mercedes driver came in for some stick on Sunday for appearing to push both Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso off the track.

The latter accused Rosberg of dangerous driving, saying that if there had been a wall there instead of a run-off area it could have been a serious accident.

The stewards didn’t see it that way and “unanimously” cleared Rosberg of all wrong doing.

And the German, who finished fifth, reckons the stewards made the right call.

“Of course there were the two incidents with Lewis and Fernando, which were both definitely good racing,” he told Autosport.

“I even had to go to the stewards for that and thankfully they judged that it was tough but okay so I didn’t get a penalty for that.”
