FIA will not take action against Rosberg
26 August 2014 – The FIA has no plans to investigate Nico Rosberg despite Lewis Hamilton's claims that German admitted he had deliberately crashed into him during last weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.
Rosberg has since disputed that and maintains – publicly at least – that the collision was a 'racing incident'.
"The FIA will not intervene in this issue," a spokesman for the FIA told Reuters.
He added that only a "new element" would justify the opening of an investigation after the results had been declared final, pointing out that Hamilton's comments do not qualify as such.
"A comment alleged to have been made in an internal briefing and later denied by the team itself does not constitute such a 'new element'," he explained.
Hamilton, who was leading, lost out heavily as a result of the collision on the second lap, picking up a puncture and later retiring.
Rosberg, in contrast, later pitted for a new nose, and then fought back to finish second, increasing his lead in the championship from 11 points to 29.
