Lewis Hamilton says that Fernando Alonso’s recent comments regarding his Formula 1 titles made him “giggle”.
Alonso stated that Max Verstappen’s championships have more value than Hamilton’s, claiming that the Briton has mainly had to contend against his own team-mate.
Verstappen beat Hamilton to the championship in 2021 following an intense campaign, while this year, he has dominated the season.
Hamilton responded to his ex-McLaren team-mate by posting a social media message of them both standing on the podium, with Hamilton on the top step.
The seven-time World Champion spoke of the matter following his run to second place at the Mexico City Grand Prix on Sunday.
“I don’t really have a lot to say about it,” Hamilton said. “It does make me giggle a little bit to be honest, but I have tried to be really respectful over the years.
“When you’ve ever asked me about who has been the better driver for me I’ve always tried to give praise, but it’s definitely interesting to see the comments that are made, but it doesn’t really matter.
“So that’s why I just kind of put the thumbs up.”
Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff brushed off the comments when asked about Alonso’s statement.
“He’s a teaser,” Wolff said. “Comedy. It’s great headlines, this sport is about headlines. They are great champions. Alonso likes to throw one in.”
Alonso soon responded to the attention his comment received, taking to social media to state that all F1 titles are “well deserved”.
“And again… Please, all the titles are amazing, well-deserved and inspiring,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Incomparable to each other and let’s enjoy champions and legends of our current time. Tired of the continuous search for headlines. Let’s enjoy them.”
Could he be any more phony? Does he think F1 fans are so stupid to not see through him? He has done nothing but bad-mouth Alonso and Rosberg for years now. And when he tries to “praise” almost anyone (especially Alonso and any other teammate he’s ever had, Bottas might actually have been the worst/sadist of them all), it ends up being a backhanded compliment, which is a trait of someone who is a narcissist.
Giggles of embarrassment, because he knows full well that the accusations are true.
Calm down Dami
Fuck off, Mike.
All of you all are just racist just like Alonzo and just like he has to all of have to and wallow at Lewusb7 titles his 103 wins and 103 poĺes he hasn’t ever had to cheat, like Alonzo , schumarcer or the fkexi wing flexi floor human error cost cap champion and he’s not done by aby chance the w14 will be ready for battle as will Lewis come March so deal with it !!
That’s not just a bag of shite, it’s a bag of illiterate shite. And everyone’s racist to the half black who’s also half white are they? You fucking idiot. Grow a brain for pity’s sake.
Half this half that..he is a British Male racing driver..race has nothing ro do with anything besides the race for the championship and the 20 or so races that the Racers race. Hamilton being half white and half black has no bearing on his “racing” driving skill..Max is all white, dose that make him a better driver, or a worse driver. It dose not matter about one’s heritage when racing against 19 other world class, elite drivers, and if anyone thinks otherwise, then they are racist, take race out off it, and just look with your heart and mind……
Don’t know why you’re making that reply to me, you should have been aiming it at the moron who reckons anyone who says a word against Hamilton is racist.
Having to pull the race card means you already lost the argument. No one gives a sh*t what color he is (and he is half white BTW). But just to further make you look as stupid as you actually are, Hamilton would have 1 title and less than 30 wins if Mercedes had not won the regulation lottery of 2014. And the only reason he joined Mercedes is because Niki Lauda begged them to hire Lewis — Mercedes and no other top team wanted him because he was deemed to be past his prime and had become a problem child at McLaren (sharing a screenshot of Button’s telemetry on Twitter was really the turning point in that relationship). Simple fact is Mercedes won the regulation lottery and the FIA token system prevented any other team from catching up for 8 years, and Hamilton was the one who benefited from it most. And Rosberg retiring and allowing him to cruise to four more titles was just icing on the cake, because Rosberg was on fire and within one season could have caught up to Hamilton’s Mercedes stats. It’s also worth noting Rosberg wanted Alonso to replace him and Hamilton stopped it.
Alonso grew out of being a prima-donna arse into a mature racing machine who was able to bring last place cars with Jap crap lawn mower engines to P5 and P6 finishes on a regular basis; where Hamilton regressed from a personable young man and an extraordinary talent to an adult clown with insane luck. It hard to believe either are the same person.
Strap them both in the same car again and let them go at it. Guarantee Lulu would never agree to it.
Hamilton didn’t cheat, you are right about that, but Mercedes did..and for nearly 8yrs they had an advantage on the other manufacturers. It was definitely not an even playing field when talking about Mercedes technology and development. They hinder Ferrari’s horsepower, they made sure Mclaren didn’t use any of the developments designed while Hamilton was driving for them, they spied on their competitors and restricted other teams from advancing at the same level as themselves with backroom deals with curtain FIA official’s…so your right Hamilton didn’t cheat.
Alonso can say whatever he wants, 7-2 is the only stat that matters.
I guess that means Max’s title this year is worth little since he had no competition too. Or does the double standard disallow that?
FUK ALONSO. AIN’T WIN SHIT IN 16 years. Got beat by a rookie , involved in spygate and had his teammate Piquet crash into a wall to win a race.
All these comments are worthless and shameful, F1 is supposedly a colourless organisation, which lately has tried to be better than they where. Alot of people around the world that watch F1 are struggling to keep warm and stay fead, and putty arguments are what we get from the drivers. Theses drivers should try living like us regular Joe’s, they would have there eyes opened to the real issues faced by millions, so stop bickering and just race so we have the entertainment that we want..at the the end of the day the racers are all equal, they are all JUST ENTERTAINERS. Without us the audience F1 would exsist. I for one have always and will always love watching them race. So please get on with it and race.
