Lewis Hamilton might not be having his best season in the 2022 Formula One championship. However, there is no denying the fact that with seven world titles, Hamilton is among the greatest F1 drivers of all time. Fans are aware that Hamilton and Fernando Alonso have been long-time rivals in Formula One. Still, recently, Alonso took a dig at Hamilton amid his poor run. 

Fernando Alonso Slams Lewis Hamilton!

During the Austin, Texas, practice for the United States Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso smacked Lewis Hamilton. Pirelli tested its tires on the COTA course for 2023 while drivers participated in an extended practice session on Friday last week. During that moment, when the Alpine driver tried to profit from a quick lap, he was left miffed with Lewis Hamilton. The seven-time world champion ordered the Spaniard to slow down after he had raced around the Texan circuit at breakneck speed. Alonso lost momentum because it appeared that he could not overtake Hamilton, who did not give the 40-year-old enough room to take the lead.


And it is expected that the Spanish star was not thrilled with his former opponent because he was trying to post one of his faster speeds of the day. Fernando Alonso, a two-time world champion, then criticized Hamilton over the team radio for not allowing him to pass. He stated, \”At the moment, Hamilton has no mirrors today!  Unbelievable\”! The Alpine driver\’s disappointing FP2 performance, where he came in 17th fastest while Lewis Hamilton came in ninth, marked the beginning of a tough race weekend. 

Verstappen Is Better Than Hamilton, Claims Alonso


The first season of his Formula One career without a victory draws near. And Hamilton returns to Austin, still searching for his first triumph of 2022. Meanwhile, recently, Alonso has also said in the conversation that he respects Lewis Hamilton a lot. But he believes Max Verstappen is ahead of the Briton at this point. Verstappen won the world championship earlier this year at the Japan Grand Prix, but last year was different. Throughout the competitive racing year, the Dutch driver engaged in a tight competition with Hamilton for the world championship.

And that is something it differentiates the Red Bull driver from the Mercedes hero. According to Alonso, Verstappen fought for his place against all the drivers and won consecutive titles. On the other hand, Lewis Hamilton, in his time, just had to beat his then-team-mate, Valtteri Bottas, to secure the Grand Prix wins.

It\’s no secret that the seven-time world champion has had a difficult time adjusting to his Mercedes for 2022. The Englishman, however, is considerably more upbeat going into this weekend\’s race following a solid FP1 showing and an upgrade. He expressed his gratitude to everyone who had worked so hard at the plant to get the upgrade to us in time for this weekend.
