Could be a genuine gesture, could be damage limitation for all the petulance.

Congratulations Nico.

I do not like you one bit. But you did what you had to. Next year I hope both cars work as intended and that we have a fair fight.

I think it's genuine. Either way I think it's something Rosberg would never do. He is too arrogant for that.

And it didn't take 3 days for Nico to post his Facebook message. I'm sorry but I'm having a very difficult time believing that is genuine.

Seeing this is my first post in the Nico thread, I think a job well done to Mr Rosberg is in order. Seeing those family photos only furthers my belief that he is a true role model. Top guy and top driver.

I hope it is - they used to be friends. I'd like them to be able to get back to that again.

At McLaren, Hamilton and Button raced each other and let each other stay on the track. That's the way I think a team should be run, and the way the team mates should behave, so I think Wolff has been weak in how he has been running the team. Maybe he was exempting himself on the basis of the FIA have a rule against forcing another driver off the track?

It's obviously an advantage if one driver can establish that the other one always has to be the one to back off, or there will be contact. Senna did it to a large extent. We have seen since Austria that there actually always was an FIA rule against forcing another driver off the track, and they can apply it to 2 drivers in the same team. I think that makes it easier for there to be better relations between Hamilton and Rosberg again, and in some ways, Rosberg winning a World Championship potentially gets another problem off both their backs.

I can see that was from 2014. Rosberg was less than gracious in 2015 http://www.firstpost.com/sports/awkward ... 82342.html

The truth is, both drivers have displayed poor "sportsmanship" on occasion. IMO, neither side has the right to be taking "the moral high ground".

It doesn't matter when he did it, just that he did - I was answering Warheart01's post saying he would never do it.

Absolutely right about he moral high ground - both sides have been ungracious at times.

That cap throwing has to be the most misappropriated gesture in F1 history, possibly surpassing even Ron's "we were fighting Alonso" quote.

What most people who post the quote invariably leave out are the circumstances: Lewis had made a very questionable move on Nico at the beginning of the race, effectively shoving him off the track, which Nico considered unfair and meant he was clearly very miffed. He then threw the cap at Lewis immediately after Lewis had thrown it at him, which means it could be interpreted as tit for tat.

Whichever side of the fence you are on, at the very least there were controversial circumstances where Nico felt he had been unfairly treated by Lewis (whether you agree with his interpretation or not). It's not the same as simply losing a race (or even title), since in his mind (I'm stressing this point for the benefit of those Lewis fans who will undoubtedly jump upon this) he felt that Lewis had cheated.

I agree about the cap throwing. I have previously posted as such that it i think it was an innocent misunderstanding that had been blown out of all proportion. But, it doesn't justify Rosberg's ungracious behaviour in refusing to shake Hamilton's hand & throwing a strop on the podium. No excuses please.

I think believing that your opponent has cheated may be a valid reason to be upset?

To be upset yes, but not to act on that by doing what Rosberg did.

They have both been ungracious--to try and argue or pretend otherwise is just downright silly.

I'm not trying to argue that Rosberg has never been ungracious. I'm saying that on this particular occasion I wouldn't class it the same as he felt he had been wronged by the person who beat him. To me that's mitigating circumstances on that occasion. And no, I don't think that's silly.

I disagree. Both drivers failed to act properly. Both had their own reasons, but that doesn't mitigate their actions. Both were poor & to try and paint one as more "acceptable" than the other perhaps implies bias on your part.

This Sky article tends to agree with you - about the cap throwing part.

[What happened next and why?
The subsequent hat throw may have been seen as a Nico tantrum and a lack of sportsmanship, but Rosberg was magnanimous when Hamilton first entered the room, hugging and congratulating his team-mate. One can only presume that Hamilton appreciated the gesture.]

Dear god, another one bringing out the bias card just because someone has a different opinion. The art of debate is fast disappearing, it seems.

First I'm silly, now I'm biased. Any other insults you want to get off your chest?

Here's a novel idea, guys - how about we stop attacking each other, no matter how well veiled the attacks are or whether they are picked up by everyone.

No. Lewis is just a ballerina. According to Stewart, that is. :)

(If you are not a Rosberg fan, I would answer you differently ;))

:thumbup: Great decision by Nico R. He has achieved so much and has more to live for off-track now. A really good career to look back on.
