Hamilton apologises

The Times newspaper on Thursday quoted International Automobile Federation (FIA) president Jean Todt as saying the McLaren driver could have faced a heavy punishment for his comments after the May 29 race.

“It is unacceptable. I didn’t want to over-react,” the Frenchman said. “I could have asked the judicial court to address the problem but we never officially opened the case and he went with his father to the stewards to apologise.

“He wrote to me and it was between him and the FIA... For me this thing is over.”
