Fernando Alonso, who narrowly escaped injury when the now-banned Grosjean's Lotus flew across his cockpit at Spa, confirmed that the French driver subsequently said sorry by text message.

And Lotus boss Eric Boullier said Grosjean has also spoken to the others caught up in the shunt, including Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez.

Perez's Sauber teammate Kamui Kobayashi was also smashed out of the race by the Grosjean incident, having qualified a career-best second at Spa.

"I read everywhere that Grosjean has apologised to all the drivers for the starting accident at Spa," team boss Peter Sauber is quoted by Blick newspaper.

"(That's) a lie. He has contacted neither Sergio nor Kamui," said the Swiss.
