Rosberg won't face FIA action

The FIA has confirmed that the Nico Rosberg-Lewis Hamilton collision at Spa is a closed case.


Race stewards decided not to take action against Rosberg after he hit Hamilton on lap two on Sunday, but there was talk that the FIA could punish the German retrospectively after Hamilton claimed his Mercedes team-mate admitted during a post-race team meeting that he deliberately crashed into him.

"He said he did it on purpose, he said he could have avoided it. He said 'I did it to prove a point," Hamilton said.

Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff, though, felt Rosberg's comments were misinterpreted saying: "They agreed to disagree in a very heated discussion amongst ourselves, but it wasn't deliberately crashing. That is nonsense."

However, The Telegraph reports that the matter is closed as far as the FIA is concerned as no "new evidence" has come to light since Sunday.

"The FIA will not intervene in this issue," a spokesman said. "Only a 'new element' that would have appeared after the results became final could justify us opening an investigation. A comment alleged to have been made in an internal briefing and later denied by the team itself does not constitute such a 'new element'."
