Jenson Button believes he "overreacted" when he criticised Lewis Hamilton for his driving in the German Grand Prix.

Hamilton was trying to overtake Button at the Turn 6 hairpin but the McLaren was taking a wider line and the two drivers made contact at the exit of the corner. Hamilton admitted he thought Button was giving him room and said he had misjudged the situation - even raising a hand in apology when he finally passed the McLaren - and immediately after the race Button was critical of his former team-mate's driving.

However, having reviewed the race on Sunday night, Button took to Twitter to apologise for his reaction, saying he could see how Hamilton had read the situation.

In the heat of the moment Button over-reacted.
Afterwards when he had viewed the footage he realised that his comments were wide of the mark and he was big enough to apologize.
Fair play to Button for this.
Shame Massa couldn't take a leaf out of his book.
