Formula One News » Hamilton: Rosberg should have been on the podium Posted on 24/03/2013
After being told to save fuel and hold positions, Lewis Hamilton says it should of been team mate Nico Rosberg who made the podium at the Malaysian grand prix.
“The team did a fantastic job if I am honest I really feel Nico should be standing here, he had a better race than me,” Hamilton said. “I can’t say it’s the best feeling being up here but racing is racing.”
Nico Rosberg said: “It’s a team effort and I respected the team’s opinion,” said the German.
“It was an important day. We’ve had such a tough time in past years, so to be third and fourth, and fighting the Red Bulls, is such a milestone.
“For the team to want us to bring it home third and fourth is fully understandable and I know if it had been the other way around they would’ve done the same thing.
“There will be times to fight between team-mates in the future.”
