Just got on to twitter and saw this.

As a fan this is probably my biggest facepalm moment after Monaco 2011.

It only reveals his only insecurities and only serves to burn bridges both with JB and the team, not withstanding that it isn't correct.

Of course he'll delete it, but the damage is done.

For him to post it suggests that perhaps there's a little more animosity between them there appears to be on the surface.

Edit: If he was hacked (or social engineered), than of course disregard the above.

Disappointing if true, but I thought JB had never followed him, and the whole unfollow Lewis, follow Checo was a bit of mischief cooked up as a non-story?

This doesn't really make sense.

It's an interesting dynamic because so far only Jenson has put down critical comments on Lewis its only a matter of time for Lewis to let it out before he leaves. This is going to be good if indeed his Twitter wasn't hacked. Remember Lewis lost his phone a few weeks ago hacking is not out of the question!


Are you serious?

I'm posting a bit because I'm excited; If the tweets are genuine, Is Lewis really that desperate to fulfil the Prost Senna dynamic between him and Jenson? The only thing missing so far has been pure vitriol for one another, I guess now is a good time to start it.

It's true, but it's kind of childish of Button to not follow Hamilton at all and then immediately follow Perez as soon as he signed. Like if he didn't want to follow F1 people or only his friends that's one thing but not following your teammate of three years then following the new one straight away looks bad. Still, it's more childish of Hamilton to notice and complain about it.

yes uh-oh! but Jenson said he never did follow him, so maybe Lewis has made a cock of himself.

I think he just wanted to have a dig at Jenson tbh!

This or Twitter will be a personal sponsor and he is doing his job. :lol:

Yes. Very much.

We can go through the critical comments year by year. I guess others will remember them better than me.

It all began with the classy "Is this Lewis' team?" (with a wry smile).

"What is he dooooiinng!"

"I'm disappointed he did that."

"He is going NOWHERE, he will be my team mate in 2013."

I can get more condescending comments from Jenson too like the 2011 winter and 2012 winter comments about how has wrested the team away from the Hamilton;- implying lack of leadership and introversion on Hamilton's part.

Button is like the grand aunty that takes only little digs at a time.. just enough not to get you frazzled...

Whether Button followed him or not and whether Button now follows Perez or not, basically it's ridiculous that Hamilton (assuming he's not been hacked) was so bothered about whether someone does/did/doesn't follow him. It's a complete non story to be honest. Drivers can follow who they want.

This sort of thing really winds me up. People are free to believe JB is a master politician if they wish, destabilising lewis and taking over his team with the evil strategy of taking some of them out to dinner or just plain being friendly to them.

But completely mis representing JB's comments re: lewis is completely out of order rather than merely delusional.

He has consistently been invited to kick Lewis by the media over the last 3 years and consistently declined the opportunity, rather choosing him to defend him most of the time.

Even under the provocation of just seeing his telemetry tweeted to the world he confined himself to stating it was 'disappointing'.

The rest of your examples are just tosh.

1. The driver jenson was replacing at mclaren was obviously a number 2, jenson wanted reasurance he wouldnt be put in the same situation, nothing wrong with saying that.
2. jenson obviously thought at that split second lewis was in the wrong so thats why he said that, im sure seeing the replay jenson in the end didnt think that.
3. Jenson saying he is disappointed his teammate showed private data of his lap is a bad thing to say? Completely fair
4. please tell me how that is being critical of lewis :confused:

And show us your other quotes please i would love to see them :stoned:

I think this shows that they clearly don't. Obviously more going on behind the scenes than first thought, e.g. they don't get on at all.

I don't know how old you guys are or how tech-savvy you are... but nobody takes Twitter seriously.
Get off your high moral ground, FFS. Nobody gives a bloody F about Twitter.

NASCAR drivers do a lot worse and nobody gives a damn. People are way too stuck up in the F1 circus. I understand why a guy like Montoya left F1 as fast as he got in.

Oh - ! So that makes it OK! Phew - Thanks for clearing that up Simk. Note to self - when Lewis tweets something that shows he's not that bright, "No one takes twitter all that seriously"... got it. I think we can extend that, eh simk? Any media outlet that allows Lewis to portary himself in a less than flattering light will henceforth be labeled "not taken all that seriously..." :rotfl:

Sounds like you've already made your bed - no need to discuss this further - with you, at least.

Twitter, though, is NOT a formal media like newspapers, television, radio, etc. Twitter is unique. That's where you see celebrities are their most 'genuine'. Some use Twitter purely as an advertising tool - some actually use it to connect to fans.

You've just proven you are one of those who never got beyond Y2K.

This 'guy' is an extremely tech-savvy grandmother - you can guess my age from that. Lewis Hamilton has a 1,118,853 Twitter audience, the majority of which see his every tweet. I think that most people will agree that that that's quite a large audience. Twitter is extremely important for reputation management, personal branding and brand insights. To say that 'no-one takes Twitter seriously' is more than ridiculous. I don't know who you are but tech-savvy you are not.

Nobody gives (what you call) a 'bloody F' about Twitter?

The question is, how old are you?

He knows exactly how important Twitter is, it's one of the parameters he used to measure the temperature of Lewis's "hot" ticket.


"Oh, and btw, I used to live in North America and you couldn't be more wrong. Most of the Hugo Boss/Tag with a McLaren driver had Hamilton on. Magazine, in mall, etc. For a quick Internet comparison, Lewis Hamilton has far more likes than Jenson on Facebook (ie. 10 times+), and Jenson barely has more twitter followers (10% more) than Lewis despite tweeting 5x more than Lewis. You can argue Jenson does not care much about Facebook, but overall, from the Internet exposure, it's safe to say Lewis is the hottest ticket (especially if you consider F1 enthusiasts, communities, etc.)."

Jenson is one of his main rivals and to give a rival that kind of psychological edge on you and create such unnecessary drama is so foolish.
Forget twitter and focus on racing you numpty! :p

I'm a huge Lewis fan too!! I support him since Germany 2007!

As I read his tweets first I thought .. wow yes now he is starting to show us "Behind Mclaren" ... but now I think too, that was not the best idea (even he is right).
But it is what it is ... its Lewis Hamilton ... love him or hate him ... but you CANT say one thing: He is dull!

but he called his teammate out - mentioned respect. Then in his apology - didn't even tag Jenson - slight difference

Lewham really should give Twitter a break - making a d!ck of himself.

... on this note: I wish mclaren would ban drivers from using mobile devices in garages.... garages are meant for working, discussing setup, going throug telemetry... internet is not to be part of that.... same like my day job where i should not be internetting.
