Hamilton hits back at Rosberg's brakes gripe

Lewis Hamilton had a prickly riposte for his teammate and title rival in Hungary when told that Nico Rosberg was complaining about his brakes.

World champion and championship leader Hamilton is an undoubted specialist of the Hungaroring circuit, and another win this weekend will move him clear of F1 legend Michael Schumacher's impressive record at the twisty track near Budapest.

Earlier, German Rosberg - who is 17 points behind in their championship battle - had told reporters he is happy with the 2015 Mercedes "except my usual issues with the brakes".

But Hamilton sounded unimpressed when asked about Rosberg's claims, insisting he himself felt "perfectly happy with the brakes" last time out at Silverstone.

And "He (Rosberg) was perfectly fine on the brakes in the last race" as well, Hamilton added. "I'm just letting you know, because I know the data and he knows you're going to ask me that.

"I won't follow you down the garden path," Hamilton was also quoted as saying in an interview posted at F1's official website.

"He (Rosberg) wanted to let me know that (about the brakes) via the media. The fact is, we don't have any issues with the brakes."
