Lewis Hamilton says he's no longer sure if he can trust team-mate Nico Rosberg when it comes to the two battling for position on track.

The pair have found themselves racing wheel-to-wheel on several occasions this season, but the Belgian Grand Prix was the first time they've made contact doing so.

Rosberg's admission that he knew if he stuck to his line he'd make contact with Hamilton has caused much controversy and it's shaken the Briton's trust that they can race on the same piece of tarmac.

"When you're out there you have to trust people to think with their heads and not do things deliberately," he said.

"But after that meeting [when Rosberg made his comments] I don't really know how to approach the next race."

When asked what he'll do if he finds himself wheel-to-wheel in Monza, he replied: "I'll just make sure we’re not wheel-to-wheel."

Hamilton believes the motive behind Rosberg's comments might have something to do with the team order saga at the Hungarian GP before the summer break.

"It's interesting because we had that meeting on Thursday and Nico expressed how angry he was [about Hungary]. I was thinking 'It's been three weeks and you've been lingering?!'

"But I thought we should be good after that, and then this result? It's interesting."
