Re: "He hit me, Nico hit me" thoughts?

My 2c are; Ros was trying the outside, realized he wasn't going to make it, got out of it, and clipped Ham. We're talking 30mm at 160kp/h... Hardly intentional. Stewards got it right, racing incident and that's that. Small mistake, big drama. Rosberg isn't giving up and neither is Hamilton. It was b...
