No longer teammates, Lewis Hamilton has unfollowed Jenson Button on Twitter as the 2008 world champion embarks on a new campaign in Formula 1 with Mercedes.

Last year, the Mercedes driver had raised a bit of a storm declaring that he found Button had unfollowed him on the social media website shortly after it was announced that Hamilton was to leave McLaren at the end of the season.

Within an hour though, Hamilton had realized his folly when he discovered that Button had never followed him on the micro-blogging website in the first place. [REPORT]

Hamilton’s indiscretions on Twitter have grabbed attention several times, particularly when he posted sensitive telemetry data last year, ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix. [REPORT]

From the current drivers on the grid, Hamilton is following Fernando Alonso, Button's current teammate Sergio Perez and Mercedes partner Nico Rosberg.
