Nico Rosberg is firmly of the belief his bitter intra-team feud with Lewis Hamilton will soon be forgotten.

Rosberg and Hamilton finished Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix as the best of enemies following what proved to be a contentious weekend for the Mercedes duo.

Hamilton was left enraged by what he saw as Rosberg’s deliberate bid to thwart his final qualifying lap, with the latter’s subsequent win from pole position only adding to the ire of the Briton.

The podium ceremony proved to be a tense affair as they ignored one another, leaving Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda to state they should start behaving like “grown-up sportsmen”.

Rosberg said: “We discuss the issues and we have already discussed them. It will again be better and it will be forgotten.

“In our sport we can only have success as a team. Nothing can happen alone. I make an effort for teamwork and the atmosphere in the team.

“It is a bit more difficult internally at the moment.”
