Romain Grosjean wants to speak to Lewis Hamilton after being left unhappy with the Mercedes driver's behaviour on track in Austria.

Hamilton spun during FP1 and rolled back onto the track as he attempted to keep his car out of the gravel, causing Grosjean to spin himself having been following the Mercedes. Grosjean says it wasn't the only incident he had with Hamilton during Friday practice which left him annoyed at the triple world champion's driving.

“I wasn’t very happy with Lewis’ behaviour on track today," Grosjean said. “He spun, he didn’t put the brakes, he reversed in the middle of the track, and I was coming, so to have avoid it I had to spin the car.

“Then in FP2 again he was doing some quali run and he kept going straight at Turn 2, coming back and staying in the middle of the track.

“I had a lot of Lewis around me today, and if it’s the case again on Sunday then it means I’m well positioned.”


And Grosjean hopes to speak to Hamilton about the FP1 incident during the drivers' briefing on Friday evening.

“If I get the chance [to speak to him], then yeah, because we could have had quite a big crash this morning. It’s not something you want on your first run in FP1.”

A number of drivers were handed reprimands for incidents during Friday practice - including Rio Haryanto for rejoining the track in an unsafe manner in front of Daniel Ricciardo following a spin - but Hamilton was not investigated for either incident by the stewards.
