McLaren driver Jenson Button has retracted comments he made after the race toward Lewis Hamilton after the pair clashed on circuit.

Hamilton later explained that he thought Button was letting him past, to which Button responded: "Why would we let anyone through? I don't know if you've noticed but a lot of drivers do that line to get a good exit from the corner," he explained.

"I think the problem with Lewis is he expected me to let him past."

Later on Twitter though, the 34-year-old took the comments back once he had reviewed the footage.

"After watching the race back think I overreacted with my feelings about Lewis's move," he wrote. "I can understand why he thought I was giving him room.

"Amazed we both got around the corner! F1 put on a great show today and long may it continue!"
