Magnussen points blame at Grosjean for German GP collision

Magnussen points blame at Grosjean for German GP collision

Kevin Magnussen believes team-mate Romain Grosjean was at fault for the latest clash between the Haas pair, with the newest one coming in the latter stages of the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

In the British Grand Prix two weeks ago, they crashed into each other in the first lap and suffered enough damage that both drivers were forced to retire. They were reprimanded by a furious Guenther Steiner after it.

On this occasion, both drivers secured a points finish as the touch in the 56th lap was minimal, but it has once again raised questions about their relationship and professionalism.

“In Magnussen’s mind, he knows who is to blame.

“We don't have a rule that we are not allowed to race each other,” he said after the race.

"We've been told very clearly that we can't touch each other, and I see no reason why we had to touch each other [today].

"It's very clear I was on the inside, it's not like I was diving on the inside, and then he chooses to turn into me. I don't know what he was doing."

Grosjean, meanwhile, refused to be drawn in to any blame debate, instead choosing to remain silent.

"I won’t comment on that one. We got lucky,” the Frenchman said when asked about the clash.

Magnussen insists he does respect Grosjean, and that it is important that the duo, and the team, recover quickly from these issues.

"I respect him a lot,” the Dane assured.

"I think these incidents could be avoided. There are other areas where we can work very well as teammates, so we need to get over this."

And Magnussen is right. 2nd race in a row that Grosjean cannot get it right. Magnussen is aggressive but not unfairly and other drivers wouldn't crash into him like Grosjean does.
