The feud which has simmered between Lewis Hamilton and Felipe Massa this season, often flaring into an on track clash, has been put to an end by Hamilton visiting Massa after the race to make up.

The Brazilian was finishing off his press briefing at the front of the Ferrari hospitality area when Hamilton approached him and gave him a hug and said a few words.

It is not clear whether Hamilton felt moved to make some kind of apology or just a gesture to say that he wanted to put the events behind them. But either way, Massa, who earlier in the race had had another battle with the McLaren driver, this time without incident, accepted the gesture and said he appreciated Hamilton doing it.

"It was good to have a nice chat with Felipe after the race, " said Hamilton. "I have great respect for him and I'm already looking forward to racing him again next year."

For his part, Massa, who had always maintained that Hamilton was at fault in all six of their collisions, said, "I want to say I was pleased Lewis came round to see me while I was talking to the journalists. It was a very nice gesture on his part."

Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali said, "I was very pleased to see today Lewis Hamilton come in here and hugging Felipe. At the end of the day that is what it is all about. It was a good gesture and I am very happy that today this was pretty clear."
