Lewis Hamilton admits that he felt uncomfortable when fans were booing Nico Rosberg after the Italian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he was not a fan of the treatment received by Nico Rosberg from some supporters at the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday.

Despite their recent troubles, Hamilton admitted that he felt uncomfortable as fans jeered Rosberg, who claimed second place behind his Mercedes teammate, and has called for the heckling to stop.

"I've had it here, years and years ago, and it's great personally for me to have such great support, from the Ferrari fans and the Mercedes fans, but when I was up there it was awkward for me to hear them booing Nico because I just don't like that in sport," the former world champion told Sky Sports News.

"Away from the pitch and once we come away from the race, we should be nice to everyone."

Hamilton is currently 22 points behind Rosberg in the race for the World Championship.
