The Mercedes Formula One team disciplined Nico Rosberg on Friday after he accepted responsibility and apologised for a crash with teammate Lewis Hamilton. The action was announced in a statement after a clear-the-air encounter between the rival teammates at the boardroom of the Mercedes racing headquarters in Brackley, near London. Hamilton said after that both drivers had accepted they had made mistakes. With tensions high after Hamilton refused to let Rosberg pass him at the Hungarian Grand Prix this month, Rosberg clipped Hamilton's car on lap two in Belgium.
