Hamilton later stated that the incident was his fault after the impact with the ex-world champion saw him fly through the air.
He then declared “It’s nice to know how feels about me” after hearing Alonso’s comments about him.
And now he has joked he will be looking to make amends with Alonso judging by a picture he posted on Instagram.
Hamilton shared a total of five images on his account, with one of the pictures showing his autograph on a Mercedes cap.
And on the hat read a sticker which simply stated: “To Fernando.”
Captioning his Instagram post, Hamilton said: “Even though the weekend didn’t go the way we wanted, after an amazing break it was so good to be back at work.
“I love my job, my team, and I loved the energy at Spa.
“Thank you to the team for all the hard work and thank you to the fans that came out to show love, I appreciate you.”
Hamilton recently declared how he is “grateful to be alive” after stating he almost broke his back in his collision with Alonso.
He remarked: “I almost broke my back coming down.
“So it’s a big, big hit. I remember just looking at the ground.
“So it was quite high. It was definitely high up. I’m grateful to be still alive and in shape.”
