Lewis Hamilton made a shocking revelation when he claimed that teammate Nico Rosberg had deliberately collided into him at the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday, which eventually forced the Briton to retire.

In a post-race debrief at Mercedes, Hamilton said that Rosberg had admitted that caused the collision on purpose. The German too suffered because of the incident as he lost a part of his front wing that cost him some downforce. The wing was changed during his first pit stop, costing him time, which contributed him in finishing second.

"He (Rosberg) said he could have avoided it. He said 'I did it to prove a point'. He basically said I did it to prove a point,” Hamilton said. "And you don't have to just rely on me. Go and ask Toto (Wolff) and Paddy (Lowe) who are not happy with him as well.

"I was gobsmacked when I was listening to the meeting. You need to ask him what point he was trying to make because he just came in there and said it was all my fault."

The Briton added that he expected the FIA stewards to look into the incident shortly after it occurred.

"I thought for sure there would be an investigation or something like that," he said.
