After colliding with Lewis Hamilton on the opening lap of the Belgian Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso made an apology for calling him a “idiot.”

At Les Combes, Hamilton moved in on Alonso and threw his car into the air as the two battled for second position headed down the Kemmel Straight.

On the team radio, Alonso referred to the seven-time world champion as a “idiot” and said that “this guy only knows how to drive and start in first” while Mercedes stated that the car faced a 45G hit when it landed.

In a statement to the media today, Alonso clarified his on-track comments.

“First, Lewis is a champion, a legend. If you say something, and I’m sorry to repeat it, to a British driver, the media will write about it a lot after that,” said Alonso.

“If you say something about a Spanish-speaking driver, it’s all nice and nice, but if you say something to others, it suddenly becomes a bit more serious. Anyway. I apologize. I wasn’t thinking about what I said.

“I don’t really think anyone was to blame at that moment. It was the first lap and then you just drive close together.”
