Lewis Hamilton has moved on from the Twitter scandal which overshadowed his Belgian Grand Prix weekend. The 2008 World Champion received much criticism for posting car telemetry data online, but has admitted that he made an innocent mistake.
Before Sunday’s race, Hamilton took a photo of telemetry which compared the fastest qualifying laps of himself and team-mate Jenson Button; although it was not crucial data, any such information is always regarded as highly confidential. He had been attempting to compare the two laps for his one million followers, but was duly asked to remove the tweet.
“I haven't spoken to him and don't plan to – I’ve moved on from it,” Hamilton said at Monza, referring to Button who had admitted that he was ‘disappointed’ by the tweet. “Obviously it wasn't the best thing to do and it won't happen again, so let’s move forward and focus on this race.”
Button was also questioned on the matter upon his arrival in Italy.
“I thought it was important to say how I felt,” he admitted. “It's better because, when you say something, you can clear it up quicker than not saying anything. It's a pity I didn't get to see Lewis after the race - we had a picture together and that was it…I didn't see him after that.”
Hamilton is the hot topic at Monza, as the Stevenage driver is being linked with a move to the Mercedes factory team for 2014. While this theory has been supported by pundits such as Eddie Jordan, many also believe that the 27-year-old will stay at McLaren.
