Hamilton Reveals The Toughest F1 Competitor He’s Faced
Lewis Hamilton has named Fernando Alonso as the toughest opponent he’s faced during his time in Formula 1. The seven-time world champion made the claim ahead of the 300th Grand Prix start of his F1 career. I would say on pure pace, Fernando [is the toughest]. We had some good battles, Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton made his F1 debut driving for McLaren alongside Alonso in 2007. Hamilton pipped Alonso to runner-up behind Kimi Raikkonen in the drivers’ championship the same year. Hamilton says he hopes Alonso continues racing so that the two can continue to have battles. "Hopefully he will continue to race so hopefully we’ll have more in the future,"Lewis Hamilton.
