Lewis Hamilton snubs Max Verstappen as he picks his toughest rival in F1 with seven-time world champion set for 300th GP

LEWIS HAMILTON will notch up his 300th F1 GP this weekend in France – and says his toughest opponent was his first – Fernando Alonso. Hamilton, 37, will become the sixth and says while Alonso remains his most formidable opponent, his first GP in Melbourne in 2007 when he was 22, is his most memorable. It is always going to be your first, there’s only one first. Hamilton has since gone on to win a record-equalling seven world championships, and it could have been eight had he not been pipped in controversial circumstances by his latest bitter rival Max Verstappen. But when asked by SunSport who his most fierce opponent was, Hamilton was in no doubt. Hamilton has won a race in all of his previous 15 years in the sport and is determined to get at least one on the board in this campaign.
