Cape Town - Felipe Nasr has been quick to deny that a tweet disparaging Renault's Jolyon Palmer came from him, insisting his account was hacked.

Following Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix, a race in which Nico Hulkenberg scored Renault's first points while Palmer faded to 13th a lap down on the race winner, Nasr's Twitter account hit out at the British driver.

Nasr later clarified the tweet, revealing that it was not made by him.

"Hi guys, I had a non-authorized access in my twitter account," he said.

"Sorry for any inconvenience. I have already changed all my passwords."
