Following on from the Twitter accusation and subsequent apology from Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button has denied claims that he fired criticism back towards his McLaren partner. The alleged story is that the 2009 Champion mentioned that future team-mate Sergio Pérez would not have been late for a media gathering as Hamilton was in Korea.
After a reporter for Sky Sports F1 relayed Button’s words of, ‘Sergio wouldn’t have been late’, the McLaren driver denied saying such a thing.
“I didn't say a word of that,” Button told Reuters. “He (the reporter) said that 'Lewis feels like he's left the team.' I don't think Lewis feels like that either. It's amazing how people are so opinionated about what they see happening within this team with the drivers. None of it is true in the slightest. The atmosphere in the team is fantastic and, as far as I see with Lewis, he's focused and wants to win races.”
Previously, Hamilton had apologised to Button after another journalist had claimed that the latter had unfollowed the former on social networking website Twitter. Ultimately, it was revealed that Button had in fact never followed Hamilton.
