Former Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg criticizes Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton (37, 103 GP wins) is struggling. The seven-time world champion lags behind his expectations. In the new season he has been third, tenth, fourth and most recently in Imola thirteenth. It’s not just the car that’s the problem, says Nico Rosberg (36, 23 GP wins), Hamilton’s ex-teammate at Mercedes.

“Lewis definitely played a big role in the poor result this weekend,” says Rosberg, who drove for Mercedes from 2010 to 2016 and only became world champion in 2016 because team-mate Hamilton exploded in Malaysia while in the lead. After the World Cup triumph (five points ahead of Hamilton at the time), Rosberg left and ended his career.
