Mercedes executive director Toto Wolff has criticised Nico Rosberg's actions after the German driver made contact with team-mate Lewis Hamilton during the Belgian Grand Prix.

Rosberg clipped Hamilton at Les Combes, giving the Briton a puncture and dropping him down the order.

Rosberg carried on to second place while Hamilton retired during the closing stages of the race.

"Unacceptable risk," Wolff told Sky Sports F1 as he struggled to retain his composure.

"This is an absolutely unacceptable race for us, for out drivers on lap two to crash into each other…unbelievable.

"Emotions are hot, but there is one rule and this is you don’t crash into each other.

"This has happened today and not at the end of the race but on lap two."

"You don't try to overtake with the knife between your teeth in lap number two and damage both cars.

"This is a decisive moment in the battle between the two of them and for the team. Lewis is very upset, we kept him out there for a long time with a damaged car. He will recover quickly. It is going to be handled."
