The 31-year-old Briton faced a police probe after he posted a number of videos to his Snapchat account while riding a motorbike in New Zealand earlier this week.
Police in Auckland chose not to take any further action against the three-time world champion, citing a lack of "sufficient evidence". It has been illegal to use a mobile phone while driving a vehicle in New Zealand since 2009.
Asked if he felt he had a responsibility not to use his mobile phone whilst on a motorbike, Hamilton replied: "I don't really have much of an answer for you unfortunately."
