Fernando Alonso names Michael Schumacher as his greatest F1 rival in a snub to Lewis Hamilton and claims his battles against the former Ferrari star were ‘very special’… as he recalls ‘dream’ of winning first title in 2005

Fernando Alonso has snubbed Lewis Hamilton by naming Michael Schumacher as his greatest F1 rival. ‘It is difficult to pick one because they were all great rivals and very talented drivers as well,’ he told Bang & Olufsen. ‘When I came to this sport, Michael Schumacher was dominating the races and everything, probably that fight with him would still be the one I would choose. Aston Martin, obviously I will pick [Bahrain] where we got the podium, and from Renault I will pick the championship. ‘The biggest one was the first championship, always the first championship. Despite approaching the latter end of his career, Alonso has impressed with Aston Martin in the early part of the 2023 season and sits third in the drivers’ standings after three races.
