Rosberg: Lewis Hamilton made a ‘dumb’ mistake

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.
