Chance Run-In Might’ve Healed Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg’s Relationship

Cities, especially ones as big as London, are great at helping people blend in and maintain privacy. Unless you’re Lewis Hamilton.

While recently going through a run in the English capital, the Formula One star had a chance encounter with none other than former Mercedes-AMG Petronas teammate, and bitter rival, Nico Rosberg. Hamilton explained the unexpected run-in, which he said was the first time he’d seen Rosberg since last season, in a press conference Thursday ahead of this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix.

Hamilton seems to be reacting positively to the incident, so maybe all these drivers needed was a little time apart before they could bury the hatchet.

Or, perhaps the two are just so eerily similar, both professionally and personally, that the universe has them on a never-ending collision course with each other.
