I'm not sure he crashed on purpose, rather that Nico could have backed off and avoided the incident but chose not to, and placed the onus on Lewis to move.

Interesting spin on things.  Never really even though of that.  Trying to save face in a strange way.  We all have our pride in certain ways.

 

 

But no effing way, mate.  Tarnish his name with a, I did it on purpose to teach him a lesson.  What lesson was taught?  I'm not moving an inch, so come at me bro?  Eff me?  I'll eff you back.  That makes a lot more sense than, ooops I screwed up a bit so I better say I did it on purpose.  Yeah, cause they don't make mistakes ever...

 

Personally, I feel like Nico is just trying to win at all costs cause he's riding the high of being in his position right now.  He feels holier than thou.

 

Side note: not a Nico fan.

You're probably right, and I admit I don't see what point was being served by any supposed lesson. If Lewis had been racing dirty or trying to crowd him off track I could see it, but unless he's still really bent about Bahrain he's got nothing to complain about. I think either he did it by accident, or he did it on purpose to seal his championship; probably the former, as I don't really think he has it in him. But then I didn't think so at Monaco either, and and you know what they say...

He admitted to doing it on purpose, Hamilton went public with it and the team principles confirmed it. There is no guesswork here at all folks. The little princess had a hissy and took his teammate out of the race. On lap 2 for godsake.

 

 What you don't seem to be getting is that when you go into the slums the whole grid starts to turn against you. You become the wildcard that no one wants around. It takes a boatload of pennance to recover from that and in the meantime you might just find that  it becomes a whole lot harder to work your way through the pack after a pit stop.

 

Sons of 80's champions seem to think they are invincible for some reason. Going to be a very interesting second half to the season.

They confirmed what Lewis said was broadly accurate but it was misinterpreted

 

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/formula1/28925460

 

"Wolff insisted the meaning of Rosberg's comments during a private team meeting after the race had been misinterpreted.

Hamilton claimed that Rosberg said he had caused the incident "on purpose", adding: "He said he could have avoided it. He basically said: 'I did it to prove a point'."

Wolff explained: "They agreed to disagree in a very heated discussion amongst ourselves, but it wasn't deliberately crashing. That is nonsense."

"It was deliberately taking into account that if Lewis moves then it could end up in a crash."

"The FIA will now have to decide whether to investigate what was actually said in the meeting and whether Rosberg's decision not to take avoiding action effectively caused a collision, which is an offence under the F1 sporting regulations."


I read that as now Merc, in their best interest for Constructor's points is more or less trying sweep it under the rug. Bogus. Nico did what he did.
