After a frenetic start, Rosberg passed pole sitter Hamilton at Turn One, but the Briton managed to gain speed and was looking for a pass inside Rosberg at Turn Four.
The German defended his position, forcing his team-mate onto the grass. Hamilton, after losing control, went into a spin clipping Rosberg, taking the pair of them off into a gravel trap.
