Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton makes peace with team-mate Nico Rosberg

Lewis Hamilton has ended his feud with his Mercedes team-mate Nico RosbergLewis Hamilton’s very public feud with his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg is over, the British driver announced when he arrived at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on Thursday.

The two drivers had a very frosty weekend in Monaco two weeks ago when Hamilton refused to join Rosberg in the post-race podium celebrations. He had suggested that Rosberg had deliberately sabotaged his bid for pole position on the eve of the race.

Rosberg’s subsequent victory knocked his team-mate off the top of the drivers’ world championship. But Hamilton said peace had broken out as he prepared for this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix. The pair had dinner at a steak restaurant in Montreal’s old town district on Wednesday evening, following an earlier meeting after the Monaco race.

Hamilton said: “We have known each other for a long time and it is done and dusted. We look forward to working together to help the team win the constructors’ championship.

“The team has done a great job in supporting us in the way it is run with Paddy [Lowe] and Toto [Wolff]. Their support for both of us is great. We are full steam ahead. We had dinner together with the team yesterday and things are better.
