Alonso apologises for calling Hamilton ‘an idiot’ following Belgian GP crash

Before this week’s Dutch GP, the Spaniard admitted he was wrong in calling Hamilton “an idiot” and questioning his driving skill. Hamilton said he had not spoken to Alonso but insisted he had already dismissed the row. Alonso said he would speak to Hamilton at Zandvoort on Thursday but when asked, Hamilton said they had not conversed. “We were standing right next to each other in the TV pen but no,” he said. Hamilton said he wanted to set an example of behaving in a sporting fashion. It’s good to have fun sometimes with these things,” he said. Alonso, however, did pay tribute to Hamilton, stressed his respect for him and said his comments had been an overreaction made in the heat of the moment that had been blown out of proportion. “Nothing I said is true and there are facts that show the opposite. “In football, in tennis you have your moments of privacy with your team,” he said.
