Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso

Just as we approach the Japanese Grand Prix weekend, Lewis Hamilton has started mind games with Fernando Alonso claiming that the team supports him more than Alonso and that they have lesser respect for Alonso than Hamilton himself. Speaking about Fernando Alonso he said :

Since what’s gone on, they’ve realised who the real people are in the team and who they should really back,” he said.

“Fernando Alonso is definitely not the person I imagined him to be, but that’s the way it is.””When you are in a relationship with a certain amount of people, you do the best job you can and want to show to everyone that you are the one for the team.

“In this situation, I was a rookie and he was the two-time world champion coming into the team.

“He is the one that was looked at to bring it home, but eventually I have earned more respect from them.”

He stressed that he wanted to win the title fair and square

“I want to win it the world championship fair and square. Not once have I approached the team members and asked to be favoured.

“It is just not something I have done at any team, asking for better equipment than the other driver.

“I want to win it the right way. The best feeling ever is when you know you have won and you have beaten someone as talented as he is with the exact same equipment and exactly the same opportunity.”
