Two-time world champion, Alpine driver Fernando Alonso compared the achievements of Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.
Fernando Alonso: "At first there was a lot of criticism due to the fact that Verstappen got a place at the age of 17. It's all nonsense. There is no need to judge drivers by their age. If they perform better than others, why not let them? I liked that we had such a young driver on the starting grid.
We've had almost no battles, and that's unfortunate. I want to compete with the best, and Max is one of them. In the past I was lucky enough to race with Vettel, Hamilton, Michael Schumacher, but I haven't had a chance with Max yet.
I have a lot of respect for Hamilton, but when you win seven titles, when you only have to compete with a teammate, it's different. Even if you have fewer titles, but you are fighting with other drivers who may even have a better car, then it is more significant. I haven't seen Max fight for the title with Albon or Perez”.
Seven-time world champion, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton reacted to the words of his former teammate Fernando Alonso.
Hamilton responded by posting a photo from the podium, hinting that he was ahead of Fernando Alonso in his debut season.
