Lewis Hamilton last night revved into a mistaken Twitter rant against Jenson Button, slamming his Mclaren team-mate for 'unfollowing' him on the social media site - before being forced into a U-turn when it later emerged Button had never followed him in the first place.

Hamilton first tweeted: "Just noticed @jensonbutton unfollowed, thats a shame. After 3 years as teammates, I thought we respected one another but clearly he doesn't."

His righteous outrage continued: "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!!"

But, a little later, news caught up:" My bad, just found out Jenson never followed me. Don't blame him! Need to be on Twitter more!."

This outburst could make relations between the two Brits uncomfortable, Metro suggests: "Hamilton finished behind his teammate at the Japanese grand prix on Sunday and his criticism may make things awkward in the garage at the Korean race at the weekend."
