- Championship leader Nico Rosberg said he has learned his lessons from events at the controversial Hungarian Grand Prix last month and will change his approach to team strategy decisions at future races.

Rosberg's lead in the championship was trimmed to 11 points at the Hungaroring a month ago when his Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton ignored a team instruction and took third place in a chaotic race.

"I've learnt various things from that race which I will try to adapt to in the future," Rosberg told a news conference on Thursday ahead of this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.

"I gather it was a bit of a mess (in the media) after Hungary so it's best I don't add too much and not give too many details.

"In general, we discussed it after the race because it's important to review a situation like that."
