Fittipaldi backs Alonso over Hamilton spat

F1 legend Emerson Fittipaldi has sided with Fernando Alonso over a recent spat with Lewis Hamilton. Two-time champion Alonso recently suggested that Max Verstappen’s back-to-back titles were worth more than many of Hamilton’s seven world championships. “I have a lot of respect for Lewis, but still it is different when you win seven world titles when you only had to fight with your teammate,” Alonso told De Telegraaf. “Much more than when Lewis was winning the championships, that was against his teammate. Now, you have Max who is against a lot of different people. Much closer than when Lewis and Nico (Rosberg) or Lewis and (Valtteri) Bottas were there.
