GP Week : Issue 219

It made for a lively post-race press conference and for some crisis management at Mercedes. While its two chargers had buried the hatchett - at least publicly, and not in the other's back - by the time they reached Bahrain, Rosberg clearly felt no remorse for the statements which ignited the public row. "I would do it again because I felt the need to state the facts. There was a need to discuss things after that race," he insisted "It's not an opinion, I was stating facts and I never stated an opinion. "That's it, I wouldn't do anything different. It's a thing of the past and I'm in Bahrain now and I'm here just to attack in a race car again. That's the best answer I can give, on the race track. I'm looking forward to it and that opportunity." Hamilton too acknowledged the incident but was rather looking to forget the matter. " That is something we spoke about after the race," he admitted. " There are no issues between me and Nico," he insisted. "Everything is good. There are going to be times when we are unhappy about something, but we are grown-ups and we will move passed it." " You obviously know what my comments were after the race and some of you will have spun those words in whatever way you wanted to spin them. We are moving forward and we will re-unite as a team." But while the pair outwardly seem to have made up following the spat there remains an underlying tension between them, highlighted by Rosberg's belief that the situation could, and probably will happen again. “It's so difficult because it's not a thing that's black or white and that's what makes all these scenarios difficult. The same as we had in Hungary last year, it's not black or white and that's why there are always different opinions. "Eventually, once the facts are analysed, there are still different opinions and it's going to be different from one race to the next.” 11 GPWEEK.com // 11 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
