Hamilton won't help Rosberg against Vettel

Lewis Hamilton does not intend to help his teammate Nico Rosberg in the fight between him and Sebastian Vettel. The pilot of the Team Ferrari has a four-point lead over its compatriot with three Grands Prix remaining at the end of the season and could prevent Mercedes to achieve a double in the Drivers' ranking.

« We haven’t talked about it, but I don’t think it’s necessary to do so.”, replied the three-time world champion at a press conference in the paddock of the Mexican GP on the Hermanos Rodriguez circuit. “The team didn’t ask me to help and I’m here to win races. The team won the Manufacturers' Championship and I think that helping out would not bring a huge benefit to the team. We will see what Toto (Wolff, the executive director of Mercedes Motorsport) asks me. »

Lewis Hamilton assures that he has no problem with his teammate, even if Nico Rosberg was angry against the Briton's maneuver at the US GP in Austin (Texas) on October 25. “Maybe Toto feels he should discuss this with Nico to see what he has in mind. We clearly don’t want any tensions within the team. We try to keep things transparent”, said the three-time world champion.
