Jenson Button has questioned Nico Rosberg's move on Lewis Hamilton on lap two of the Belgian Grand Prix which resulted in contact.

The McLaren driver, a former team-mate of Hamilton, doesn't believe Rosberg was in a position to 'have a go' at the time and is certain the German will agree upon reviewing the incident.

"I feel for Lewis," said Button. "It's a shame it's not a cleaner fight.

"Any driver would look at it now, and I am sure Nico will look at it and say, 'I don't know what I was thinking'.

"There was no move. Strange. You should be able to judge situations like that a bit better."

Button insists the clash isn't good for the sport despite it creating drama.

"Is it good for the sport? It's negative because we didn't see a good battle between those two.

"But it does get everyone excited about the next GP in Italy, where none of the fans will be cheering for either of them and would love a coming together," he added.

"It adds spice, but it's a shame in that true racers want to see them fighting."
