F1: Hamilton reflects on “good times and bad times” in Alonso relationship

The pair infamously became the centre of the inner McLaren conflict when Hamilton as an F1 rookie took on defending world champion Alonso on his maiden season at the team in 2007.
Following a turbulent period which saw Alonso leave after one year, the pair gradually repaired their relationship as F1 rivals and with the Spanish driver set to retire from the sport after the 2018 finale in Abu Dhabi this weeekend Hamilton says he’ll miss his former teammate.
Hamilton also reiterated Lewis Hamilton never felt he had a direct conflict with Alonso in 2007 when they were fighting for the F1 world title together at McLaren but the breakdown was due to “how that was managed”.
