Lewis Hamilton insists the chapter is now closed on his jaw-dropping collision with Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Hamilton and Rosberg failed to make it beyond turn four of the Barcelona race after they crashed on the opening lap.

The paddock was divided as to who was at fault for the accident, but both the race stewards, and Hamilton's Mercedes team for that matter, deemed it to be a racing incident.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix, Hamilton, who trails Rosberg by 43 points said: "Barcelona was the worst feeling, but like I always say, the true test is how you get back up when you've been knocked down.

"It was a tough moment for all of us after the race, but it's now chapter closed and looking ahead to Monaco."

Neither Hamilton nor Rosberg were prepared to accept blame for the opening-lap crash.

And Rosberg, winner of the last three grands prix on the streets of Monte Carlo, is also keen to put the incident behind him.

Rosberg added: "I was gutted after what happened in Spain - for myself, but mostly for the team.

"We're in this together and I know how hard everybody works to make these amazing cars, so for us to leave them both in the gravel is the worst possible scenario.

"But we've talked it through and now it's time to leave it in the past."
