Nico Rosberg fires shots at former teammate Lewis Hamilton over disaster at Imola


As if he didn’t suffer enough on-track at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix over the weekend, seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton is also having to dodge barbs that are being thrown his way by former Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg.

The 2016 world champion has been making a career for himself as a regular guest commentator on the Sky Sports Formula 1 coverage this season, and he had a lot to say about Hamilton’s disastrous weekend at Imola. In fact, the Briton been having a miserable 2022 season so far, but the weekend in Italy was by far the worst.

On Friday, both Mercedes cars driven by Hamilton and George Russell failed to make it into Q3. On the Saturday sprint race, Hamilton could only finish way back in 14th place while Russell was in 11th. Things did not improve much for Hamilton in the main race on Sunday, as he crossed the flag in 13th place way behind Russell who managed to climb up to 4th.
