Former FIA Formula One World Champion Mika Hakkinen has spoken out against Lewis Hamilton‘s “sub-standard behaviour” in Monaco last weekend.
Speaking in Finland’s Ilta Sanomat newspaper Hakkinen said that he did not like what Hamilton had done when he accused team-mate Nico Rosberg of sabotaging his qualifying session
“It’s hard to tell if something is going to change significantly, I don’t know if Lewis would even consider apologising for his behaviour. It is a very individual thing.
“But in my opinion, one of the characteristics of a good winner is that he also knows how to lose,” Hakkinen added.
Talking about the qualifying incident Hakkinen isn’t too sure it was a deliberate action.
“To me it is clear he locked his brakes at Mirabeau,” said the Finn. “It is downhill there with nasty bumps and so making a mistake is easy to do.
“Nico is an honest guy,” Hakkinen added, “but you can also see on the computer very precisely where he hit the brakes.”
