F1 Champion Lewis Hamilton won't patch things up with Nico Rosberg

By Staff Reporter

Lewis Hamilton has no intention of helping Nico Rosberg secure second place in the championship, and revealed he has yet to discuss their first-corner clash in last Sunday's United States Grand Prix.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said he would speak to Hamilton (pictured) over the incident which saw the team-mates bang wheels on the exit of turn one.

Hamilton emerged in the lead while his team-mate slipped to fifth.

Rosberg was seething with Hamilton after the race, describing his driving as "extremely aggressive" and going "too far".

While Hamilton went on to win the race and secure an unassailabale lead in the championship, Rosberg is third in the standings four points adrift of Sebastian Vettel with three races remaining - starting with this weekend's Mexican Grand Prix.

Asked whether he would help Rosberg finish second in the championship, Hamilton said: "The team have not asked me to play that role. I am here to win the race, but I will see what Toto wants."
