When it comes to wheel-to-wheel combat, Lewis Hamilton has taught Nico Rosberg a few harsh lessons in their time together fighting for world championships.
One of the main things the three-time world champion has made clear is 'If you want to overtake me around the outside, it's not going to work out'. First lap skirmishes at Suzuka and Austin in late-2015, and Montreal 2016 were prime examples.
Rosberg needed to bite back to prevent himself becoming his team-mate's doormat, because it was becoming clear Hamilton was prepared to take more liberties whenever the two Silver Arrows did battle. The longer it went on like that without a response, the more established Rosberg's position as the soft touch in the team would become. The tables needed to turn.
