'Clear-the-air' talks for Rosberg, Hamilton

World championship leader Nico Rosberg said that his Mercedes team would sit down and clear the air between him and Lewis Hamilton after their battle in Bahrain.

Hamilton held off his clearly quicker teammate over the final few laps to win his second race in a row after a ding-dong duel, during which Rosberg complained over the radio, "That's not on".

"It was an enjoyable fight, during the race anyway," added Rosberg. But he added they would iron out any differences during an evening team meeting.

"It's completely normal that, as a team, when there are races when a lot has happened that you're going to go and sit down and discuss," he said.

"That's very, very important to move forward. And we will do that and we will do that today.

"We will make sure everyone knows the different opinions, we will review to be able to put it completely behind us." - AFP.
