MOVING ON...: Lewis Hamilton has dismissed his Twitter gaffe and left it behind as 'lesson learned, moving on'.

MONZA, Italy - Lewis Hamilton felt no need to seek out Jenson Button to apologise for his Belgian GP Twitter gaffe but said he'd learned from the experience, wouldn't do it again and had moved on.

The 2008 F1 World champion caused a furore ahead of the 2012 Spa GP when he tweeted confidential qualifying data to nearly a million followers - including members of rival teams grateful for the information.

He later deleted the tweet at McLaren's request.

'NOT BEST THING TO DO'

Button, whose car's performance telemetry was also highlighted, won the Spa race but said afterwards he was "disappointed" by his team mate.

"I haven't spoken to him, don't plan to, moved on," Hamilton said at Monza ahead of the Italian GP. "It wasn't the best thing to do and won't happen again, so move forward and focus on this race."

Button, speaking to reporters separately, made it clear he had also moved on. "I thought it was important to say how I felt," he said. "It's very easy to not say anything. It's also better because when you say something you can clear it up quicker.

"It's a pity I didn't get to see Lewis after the race. We had a picture together and that was it."
