Lewis Hamilton has been forced to apologise to outgoing McLaren team-mate Jenson Button after accusing him of being disrespectful. The outburst came on Twitter following Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix.
Hamilton and Twitter have accompanied each other in several news stories already this year, not least after the 2008 World Champion was posting profanities and then tweeted telemetry information after qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix.
On Sunday, he believed Button had stopped following him on the social networking site.
‘Just noticed @jensonbutton unfollowed, that’s a shame,’ Hamilton typed. ‘After three years as team-mates, I thought we respected one another but clearly he doesn’t. Funny thing is, we are STILL team-mates! All good tho, I plan on giving this team & fans all I got til I cross the finish line in Brazil!!!’
Approximately one hour later, Hamilton posted the following when it came to his attention that Button had in fact never followed him:
‘My bad, just found out Jenson never followed me. Don’t blame him! Need to be on Twitter more!’
Button was yet to post anything on Twitter until Monday morning, choosing to ignore the Hamilton comments and instead congratulate Kamui Kobayashi on what was the Sauber driver’s maiden Formula 1 podium finish in his home race.
‘Congratulations @Kamui_Kobayashi on your first F1 podium..extra special in front of your home crowd. #almostgotya!’ said Button.
