All smoke and mirrors as Mclarens team-mates are no more

Lewis Hamilton, the Mclaren poster boy has upset many fans by accusing team-mate Jenson Button of unfollowing him on Twitter.

“Just noticed @jensonbutton unfollowed, thats a shame. After 3 years as teammates, I thought we respected one another but clearly he doesn’t.”

As Hamilton prepares to move to rival team Mercedes next season it has become apparent that the two British drivers may not have the ‘perfect’ friendship that many perceive. It has been clear that throughout this season Hamilton has not been happy about Jenson’s often superior driving. This isnt Hamilton’s first tweeting blunder; after qualifying in Spa earlier this year, he voiced his upset in being unable to match Buttons performance

‘Upset at being unable to match Button’s pace in qualifying after opting to run an older spec rear wing’

It has been a turbulant season with many  unhappy with Hamilton’s behaviour on and off the track forcing a u-turn after this latest escapade:

“My bad, just found out Jenson never followed me. Don’t blame him! Need to be on Twitter more!”

With no comment from Mclaren and no serious acknowledgement from Button it leaves many, including Hamilton, wondering if Twitter is something Hamilton should persue or laid to rest with his Mclaren career.
