Lewis Hamilton has apologised to Kamui Kobayashi and accepted full responsibility for their collision at the Belgian Grand Prix.
The McLaren driver retired at Spa after he made contact with the Japanese driver early in the race. The front-right tyre on the Sauber hit the left-rear of the MP4-26 car at speed and Hamilton went ploughing nose first into a crash barriers.
In the aftermath of the accident, Hamilton told BBC Sport "as far as I was concerned I was ahead of whoever it was I was racing and then I just got hit by them and that was my race over".
Kobayashi, meanwhile, claimed the McLaren moved into him, saying "after he overtook me it was not my intention to get my position back, so I stayed on my line and didn't expect him to move over."
Hamilton, though, has decided to change his account of the incident after watching the replays.
Via his Twitter account, Hamilton said: "After watching the replay, I realize it was my fault today 100%. I didn't give Kobayashi enough room though I thought in (sic) was past.
"Apologies to Kamui and to my team. The team deserves better from me. Best wishes, Lewis."
