Hamilton accuses Button of disrespect for Twitter unfollow

Thinking his team-mate had "unfollowed" him on Twitter, Hamilton angrily tweeted "That's a shame... I thought we respected one another but clearly he doesn't." But he soon discovered that Button had never actually been a follower: "My bad, just found out Jenson never followed me. Don't blame him!" Only a few weeks ago, he also tweeted telemetry data in an effort to explain Button's quicker qualifying pace at Spa.

Oops guys, mega bad by me... he actually never followed me, hope we're cool again Jenson.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Not sure what you mean by "again" there Hamilton, seems like any guy who never even bothered following his team-mate of 3 years probably never really liked him in the first place.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
I've millions of frickin' followers Nando, how was I to know the dude didn't follow me?
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I suppose you thought your race engineer followed you too, otherwise you might have shouted across the garage instead of tweeting him your telemetry.

The McLaren group would like to clarify that due to international law we cannot control Lewis' right to free speech, though it may be advisable for him to limit himself to forms of electronic communication that come with an easily accessible delete button.

Like, WTF? I just thought if Jenson wanted to diss me he should just show some respect and do it face to face.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
So out of respect you fired off a tweet about it, instead of talking to him face to face. I think you've just accidentally mastered irony Hamilton.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
Ooh, you're welcome to master my iron any day Fernando. If we ever come face to face, I'll be sure to fire one off.

I'm sure Ross is just relishing the thought of replacing the king of mature diplomacy with the boy-king of juvenile asshattery.
rossbrawn   Ross Brawn
We needed a quick decision Michael, drivers like Lewis aren't exactly two-a-penny.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Indeed, I heard he was expensive - and that's before you take into account the publicity cost of cleaning up shit like this every time he opens his gob. Maybe you should have had an off-the-record chat with Whitmarsh about that angle before signing on the dotted line.
MycLaren   Martin Whitmarsh
The McLaren group is unequivocal in its public stance that our staff will all officially dearly miss Lewis, until such time as his contract expires at the end of the season.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Can't imagine there's anything to read between the lines there. My prediction: Mercedes' second-biggest mistake of all time - Hamilton replacing Michael Schumacher.
rossbrawn   Ross Brawn
Interesting Michael, what would you consider our biggest mistake then?
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Announcing it before Michael Schumacher had a reasonable chance of convincing the world that retirement was his own idea. Watch this space.
DC   David Coulthard
I don't get it Martin, how the hell does Lewis expect Jenson to follow him when Rosberg had the second Mercedes seat sorted ages ago?
MBrundle   Martin Brundle
Christ David, it's not about Button following him to Mercedes, you're obviously mixing up news stories again.
DC   David Coulthard
Oh, so you mean on the track, well then Lewis is being a bit hypocritical isn't he? I mean he's not exactly been the best at following Button, look what happened when he tried it on the pit straight in Canada last year.
MBrundle   Martin Brundle
Bloody hell David, it's got nothing to do with driving, it's basically just handbags at 10 paces on a social network.
DC   David Coulthard
Wow, I knew Lewis liked ear-rings Martin, but handbags is taking it a bit too far - sounds like this Mercedes deal has gone to his head.
