Lewis Hamilton admitted he made a mistake after wrongly accused Jenson Button of disrespecting him by not following him on Twitter.

After two tweets expressing his disappointment, Hamilton then realised Button never followed him on the social networking site and retracted his initial tweets.


Lewis Hamilton
Just noticed unfollowed, thats a shame. After 3 years as teammates, I thought we respected one another but clearly he doesn't.

A journalist reported Button had unfollowed his colleague earlier in the week, which presumably lead to Hamilton's frankness online.


Lewis Hamilton
Funny thing is, we are STILL teammates! All good tho, I plan on giving this team & fans all I got til I cross the finish line in brazil!!!

But Button tweeted to a user on 1 October he had never subscribed to Hamilton's timeline.


Lewis Hamilton
My bad, just found out Jenson never followed me. Don't blame him! Need to be on Twitter more!

Hamilton, who will leave McLaren to join Mercedes next year, has found himself in trouble before on Twitter.


Jenson Button
Never followed him... Makes a story though!!

Earlier this year he posted a picture of the telemetry from his and Button's qualifying laps at the Belgian Grand Prix, which he was then instructed to remove.

The 27-year-old is 42 points behind leader Fernando Alonso in the championship after finishing fifth in the weekend's Japanese Grand Prix.
