BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg remain at odds over rules regarding yellow flags and how they were applied to Rosbergs pole position lap at the Hungarian Grand Prix.Rosberg claimed pole position after setting the fastest middle sector of the session while double-waved yellow flags were being flown at Turn 8. Although the situation appeared to be cleared up by a stewards investigation on Saturday night, the issue was still a sensitive one for the Mercedes drivers after Sundays race, with the debate spilling into the evenings press conferences as Hamilton continued to argue that further clarification was needed.Speaking to the media in the Mercedes motorhome on Sunday night, Hamilton revealed he spoke to FIA race director Charlie Whiting the previous evening to seek clarification over the legality of Rosbergs pole position lap. The incident was then investigated by the stewards late on Saturday night, ultimately resulting in a decision to take no further action against Rosberg.When it was put to Hamilton that his comments on Saturday may have encouraged Whiting to call for a stewards investigation, he said: I dont believe I influenced the stewards inquiry, but I spoke to Charlie for clarification because the next scenario when Im in the same position, all I have to do is lose a tenth in a corner and even if there is a car facing me, all I have to do is lose a tenth.The debate centres around the interpretation of the FIAs International Sporting Code which calls for drivers to reduce speed significantly ... and be prepared to change direction or stop under double-waved yellow flags. Rosberg was able to prove he lifted off the throttle 30 metres earlier than usual as he approached double-waved yellow flags at Turn 8, losing just over 0.1s of lap time, before getting back on the throttle at the apex of the corner as the green flag was flown.But Hamilton, who had encountered the double-waved yellow flags before Rosberg and aborted his lap, still believes his teammate did not slow enough. Speaking in the post-race press conference after his victory -- and with Rosberg sat directly next to him -- he gave a lengthily explanation as to why he felt Rosbergs actions were wrong.Well the stewards need to come up with some kind of solution, he said. In the whole 23 years of racing its been, if its a yellow flag, you slow down and if its double yellow flags you be prepared to stop.Nico was doing the same speed at the apex that I was doing on the previous timed lap, so if there happened to be a car that spun, or a marshal on the track, it would have been pretty hard for him to slow down. The fact that he didnt get penalised for it means that we need to be careful here, because the message that we are sending, not only to the drivers here but also to the drivers in the lower categories... Its now possible for you to only lose one tenth of a second in a double waved yellow flag section, which is one of the most dangerous scenarios, so they need to clear that up.Before it was two tenths you were supposed to lose with one yellow flag and half a second with two yellow flags, thats where it wasnt the case yesterday and there was no penalty, so going to into the next race, we could be battling for pole position and we see double yellow flags and we only know we have to do a small lift and lose one tenth of a second and we will be fine, and go purple in the sector.Thats why it does need to be clarified and Im sure Charlie and the stewards are going to do so, because it needs to be clear.Before the next question was asked in the press conference, Rosberg gave his own version of events.Can I respond? he said. Thank you for making that statement [Lewis]. What you have to do with a double yellow is significantly reduce your speed, and make sure you go safe, and I went 20km/h slower into that corner. 20km/h is a different world in an F1 car, 20km/h you are going proper slow and everything is safe and thats how I did my speed and lifted off 30 meters before my braking point.I was just rolling there 20km/h slower until I got to the apex, then of course when you are at the apex, I would have a much tighter line because I went slow so that I could accelerate again. Definitely I significantly reduced my speed and thats what it says you need to do and thats why for the stewards that was completely acceptable. It was very, very obvious what I did, very clear and of course on a drying track you are going to get faster every lap.Its not like the track was consistent. On a drying track its irrelevant what the sector time was because you are going to get so much quicker every time you get out there, because of the wet patches, and when they dry you just go so much quicker.So in that segment I was slower, where there was the yellow flag, but of course in the big sector yeah I am quicker because the track is getting quicker and I am pushing in all the other corners. So it was a pretty clear case for the stewards and thats why I didnt get any penalty.The debate is likely to continue at next weekends German Grand Prix, with Hamilton saying he would raise the issue at the drivers briefing after Friday practice.I will definitely raise it because knowing that on a double-waved flag all I have to do is gas it and be back on it and still go purple and still get pole while there is someone crashed, marshals on the track or someone in the middle of the road ... if can get round him by only losing a tenth then there should be no penalty.

It was McIlroys third consecutive match win and drew Europe even at 6 1/2-6 1/2.Earlier, he got into an exchange with a fan between the seventh green and eighth tee. After officials came over and McIlroy identified him, the fan was removed from the grounds.---3:10 p.m.Patrick Reed has been one of the stars of the show for the Americans so far at this Ryder Cup.Playing again with Jordan Spieth, Reed hit one of the best shots of the tournament to give the duo a 1-up lead at the one-third mark of their four-ball match against European power couple Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson.Reed dropped his approach onto the sixth green just right.

The ball astoundingly stayed stuck there, lodging between the mans back and the top of his backpack.The story only got stranger from there. The mans identity? None other than the father of Pieters, according to the NBC announcers.Koepka had to take a drop, and the Americans were able to make birdie on the par-4.---12:30 p.m.Team Europe has crept closer on the strength of a furious Spaniard rally to finish foursome play.Fellow countrymen Sergio Garcia and Rafa Cabrera Bello halved their match with Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth, and Team USA has a sslim 6+ to 5+ lead entering the afternoon four-ball matches.ddddddddddddThe Reed-Spieth tandem took a four-hole lead to the 13th tee box, before posting three straight bogeys.

Garcias tee shot sailed into the crowd -- and landed square in one of the course marshals pockets.Garcia and his human hazard shared a laugh, and the Europeans still managed to make birdie.But the Reed-Spieth duo, which vanquished the formidable European pairing of Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson with a 3-and-2 victory on Friday, still held a 2-up lead with three holes to go.---11:25 a.m.Rory McIlroy finally got a victory over Phil Mickelson.Mickelson had never lost any of three Ryder Cup matches he played against McIlroy, but Lefty didnt have much of a chance Saturday morning in foursomes. McIlroy and Thomas Pieters won three of the opening five holes. McIlroy said he wanted to win even more because Mickelson had his number.The American got within 1 down with four holes to play until Fowler missed too many key putts.McIlroy says he and Pieters were never meant to play foursomes, never practiced together and even flipped to see who would tee off on which holes. It worked.

Fourballs in the afternoon were to follow, with everything pointing toward Sunday singles to decide the Ryder Cup. ' ' '
