Sebastien Buemi has issued an apology to his Renault e.dams team and Andretti Formula E drivers Antonio Felix da Costa and Robin Frijns following his outburst following the opening Montreal race at the end of last month.

Buemi saw his bid for a second Formula E title bid crumble on the Saturday of the season finale in Montreal after a practice crash was then followed by an incident-strewn race that he was ultimately disqualified from.

Buemi was forced into an unscheduled pit stop early on after contact with Frijns at the first corner, sparking an angry tirade from the Swiss driver in the pit lane after the race.

Unfortunately for Buemi, he got Frijns confused with team-mate da Costa, the latter left perplexed as he was lambasted just moments after stepping out of the car. After being corrected, Buemi went to find Frijns and gave him a similar lecture to da Costa.

With the dust having settled from Montreal, Buemi took to Twitter on Wednesday to issue an apology to his team and the Andretti drivers for his behaviour.

One name was notably omitted from Buemi’s apology: Daniel Abt.

Abt was the third driver in the space of two minutes to face Buemi’s wrath after being accused of driving deliberately slowly in the pit lane in a bid to aid ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport team-mate Lucas di Grassi’s title bid.

A canny social media operator, Abt could not resist the opportunity to send a cheeky tweet Buemi’s way.
