Lewis Hamilton has admitted he regrets his 'cap spat' with Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg after the US GP.
Rosberg, reeling from his defeat in Austin when Hamilton secured the title after his unforced error late in the race, reacted indignantly when the Englishman nonchalantly tossed him his P2 cap.
Unimpressed, Rosberg threw the cap back at Hamilton in an incident which dominated the post-race chatter on social media.
"It's not something you expect to see from grown adults," admitted Hamilton to Sky Sports News HQ.
Mercedes have called for clear-the-air talks between their drivers after they collided into the first corner at Austin, but Hamilton says there is no point discussing their post-race fall-out.
"It didn't mean anything to me - I was happy! You should ask Nico. I'm not even on cloud nine," Hamilton said.
"I don't know who invented cloud nine but l am way, way beyond that."
