was Lewis Hamilton’s F1 team-mate – we will never be friends after intense rivalryThe Spaniard’s McLaren contract was ripped up as a result of his rivalry with Hamilton

FORMULA ONE legend Fernando Alonso has opened up about his rivalry with Lewis Hamilton. The two drivers were McLaren team-mates during Hamilton’s debut season in 2007. Alonso’s contract was subsequently terminated at the end of the season, with Hamilton keeping his seat. Alonso recently recalled what happened behind the scenes during the 2007 season and admitted that both he and Hamilton were “young and immature”. “Things like that so that the team did not take a direction or take a philosophy to develop the car that would be good for both of us, but rather each one was already looking for their own thing, to have that extra advantage, because we were very evenly matched. Alonso finished fourth in the driver standings last season, with Hamilton in third.
