McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton has apologized to Formula One rivals Felipe Massa and Pastor Maldonado for calling them "ridiculous" in the aftermath of the Monaco Grand Prix.

Hamilton was given penalties after colliding with Massa and Maldonado as he attempted to pass them during Sunday's race.

The 2008 world champion posted an apology on his Twitter account, saying he didn't mean to criticize Massa and Maldonado and labeling them "fantastic drivers who I regard highly."

Hamilton, who is second in the drivers' championship behind Monaco winner Sebastian Vettel, also criticized stewards after the race, which he finished in sixth place.

Hamilton added Tuesday "2 my fans lost & my fans won, I wish u nothing but love & happiness."
