Lewis Hamilton made a “dumb” mistake at the Italian Grand Prix, according to former rival and team-mate Nico Rosberg.
“Even Lewis, I was very happy to see actually he made a similar not so smart move as I did five years ago,” Rosberg said on his YouTube channel.
“I thought I was the only dumb person at the time that would go straight on at the chicane and actually give up a place.
“To go around those polystyrene blocks takes for ever. Lewis did the same.”
“Lewis went straight on and gave up the position to Valtteri which made me feel a little better for once.”
“Leclerc cut the chicane and he did that much more smart than I did five years ago,”
“I was leading Lewis five years ago and I also locked up in that same corner but stupid me, instead of jumping over those lumpy kerbs and not losing any time, I went straight on through the polystyrene blocks and that is how you lose a position and Lewis went on to win.” added Rosberg.
