Rosberg criticises Verstappen's Spa performance

Rosberg criticises Verstappen's Spa performance

Nico Rosberg said Max Verstappen was back to his "old self" at the Belgian Grand Prix, but not for the better.

Verstappen was eliminated at the first corner at Spa after crashing with Kimi Raikkonen, while trying to nudge up the inside of the Finn.

Having damaged his steering in the collision, Verstappen continued up Raidilion, but swerved off and into the wall.

And Rosberg says Verstappen went wrong both in the contact with Raikkonen and then trying to race on.

"Verstappen was back to his old self a little bit," Rosberg said on his Youtube debrief

"Just too aggressive, really too aggressive. I don't understand how he just stays flat out even with the car broken. He has balls of steel but that didn't make an awful lot of sense."

One driver that Rosberg did single out for praise also failed to finish the race.

Lando Norris was set to finish fifth until he suffered an engine failure on the final lap and was eventually classified 11th. If Charles Leclerc had lapped one of three cars just ahead of him on his final tour, the McLaren driver would have still scored.

"He is such a rising star at the moment. For all of you that are British, he is going to be fun for you to watch in the future," Rosberg said.

"But imagine how gutted you would be, last lap, you're doing amazingly well and doing the best race of your career, fifth place and the car breaks down. How horrible is that?

"The racing gods can always throw in crazy things but great job from Lando."
