Lewis Hamilton has ended his long-running feud with Felipe Massa after giving the Ferrari driver a hug following the Brazilian Grand Prix.

The duo had not been on speaking terms after colliding six times this season. "It was good to have a nice chat with Felipe," said Hamilton. "I have great respect for him and I'm looking forward to racing him again next year." Massa added: "I was pleased that Lewis came around to see me. It was a very nice gesture on his part."

Hamilton and Massa have clashed in a number of incidents, most notably in Monaco and Singapore, where Hamilton was blamed by officials and received drive-through penalties.
