Apologize for not doing something

Hello, I'm an Italian student and I'd like to ask you a (perhaps stupid) question about an exercise I completed in a test.

There was this sentence:

I am sorry I didn't believe you.

Then I had to transform it using "apologize".
I was wondering if both these alternatives are correct:

1. I apologize for not believing you.
2. I apologize for having not believed you. <-- Is this correct?

Thanks guys

    Hello Tony and welcome to the forum:)
    (Don't worry about asking stupid questions ~ we get far stupider ones than yours:D)

    Yes, they're both correct:tick::tick:

    Hello again Tony. One of my esteemed colleagues (who wishes to remain anonymous on this occasion ~ I have no idea why) has pointed out that
    I apologize for not having believed you
    is also also correct:)
