Lewis Hamilton has used Twitter to apologise to Felipe Massa and Pastor Maldonado, and thank his fans for their support.
Lewis sent a series of four messages tonight in his trademark shorthand style:
“Hey guys. I wanted to apologise 4 last weekends performance & also my comments after, I never meant to offend no1.”
“I would also like to say thank u 2 everyone on here, 4 their positive messages & also 2 the angry messages. I can respect them both.”
“2 Massa & Maldonado, with the greatest respect I apologise if I offended u. Both of u r fantastic drivers who I regard highly.”
“2 my fans lost & my fans won, I wish u nothing but love & happiness. God Bless u. Onwards & upwards, Montreal next. Lewis”
Following yesterday’s race Hamilton apologised to the stewards after being called to see them in the light of his controversial BBC interview.
