Civil war with Fernando Alonso and the collapse of a friendship with Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton is not new to bad blood with fellow drivers on the F1 grid… and fireworks could fly when paired with George Russell in 2022

You don’t win seven world championships in 14 years of Formula One without making a few enemies along the way and Lewis Hamilton is no different. Hamilton was coming into a team where his team-mate was the biggest dog in the yard in the world champion – Fernando Alonso. Alonso was still as quick as he ever was, but Hamilton too was straight on the pace. They clashed on track in Belgium, leading to Rosberg being blamed by the team before Hamilton took the title later that year. Hamilton’s dismay on the podium at having to watch Rosberg celebrate his championship was clear to see. But he’s also got a family to focus on and probably wants to have more children,’ Hamilton said. Even five years on, there is still no sign of Hamilton and Rosberg’s relationship repairing.
