2011 Belgian Grand PrixPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

Lewis Hamilton has changed his view on his collision with Kamui Kobayashi and now says the accident was his fault.

Hamilton posted on his Twitter account:

“After watching the replay, I realise it was my fault today 100%. I didn’t give Kobayashi enough room though I thought in was past.

“Apologies to Kamui and to my team. The team deserves better from me.”

Kobayashi said: “After he overtook me it was not my intention to get my position back, so I stayed on my line and didn?t expect him to move over.”
