Nico Rosberg says Lewis Hamilton seems “really down, which is understandable”, but wanting to “beat his team-mate” could be “the biggest motivator” to “keep fighting”.

After a tough Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was naturally downbeat as he proclaimed that he is out of the title picture “for sure”.

Lewis’ former team-mate Nico Rosberg says he believes Lewis will manage to regain his motivation.

“That was tough to see Lewis in that state,” Rosberg said on Sky Sports F1.

“He’s really down, which is understandable. It is a long season but they’re nowhere with that car – they’re not even going to be able to fight for race wins any time soon.

“So, it’s difficult for Lewis to keep his motivation up. I think he’ll manage because he really is a fighter.

“And remember there’s always that thing that he still wants to beat his team-mate. That’s really, really important to him.

“With George performing so well, that could be the biggest motivator for Lewis to just keep going and keep fighting,” concluded the German.
