Lewis Hamilton has been forced to backtrack after accusing Jenson Button of unfollowing him on Twitter only to realise he wasn't following him to start with.


Hamilton, who is off to Mercedes next season, created a stir on Sunday night when he accused his McLaren team-mate Button of disrespecting him on the social network website.

"Just noticed @jensonbutton unfollowed, thats a shame. After 3 years as teammates, I thought we respected one another but clearly he doesn't," Hamilton said on his Twitter feed on Monday.

"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!!!."

An hour later, though, Hamilton was forced into a U-Turn in front of his 1.1 million followers as it turns out Button never followed him to start with.

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