Hamilton buries the hatchet with rival

RESPECT: Massa (left) and Hamilton

FORMULA ONE racer Lewis Hamilton finished the season by settling his differences with perennial foe Felipe Massa in Brazil on Sunday (November 27).

Although Hamilton was forced out of the Brazilian Grand Prix with a gearbox failure, the McLaren Mercedes driver was in high spirits as he embraced Massa who he has had several run-ins with this year.

“It was good to have a nice chat with Felipe after the race,” said the 26-year-old Hamilton.

“I have great respect for him and I’m already looking forward to racing him again next year.”

Massa was also glad that the pair ended the season on good terms:

“I was pleased that Lewis came around to see me,” said Massa.

“It was a very nice gesture on his part.”

The Brazilian Grand Prix was won by Red Bull racing’s Mark Webber, who recorded his first victory of the season, while his team-mate Sebastian Vettel comfortably won the world championship. Hamilton finished fifth in the final standings.
