Fernando Alonso is 'greatest driver ever', says Lewis Hamilton
11 September 2018 @ 00:29

REIGNING Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton says his soon-to-be-former race colleague Fernando Alonso (pictured) is 'arguably the greatest driver' he has ever competed against.

And this is praise indeed from the unstoppable Brit, who has raced against blue-chip rivals such as Germany's Sebastian Vettel, four-times world champion, and even seven-times champion Michael Schumacher.

“[Fernando] has been one of the greatest drivers and, for me, arguably the greatest driver I've driven against. I wish him all the best moving on,” said Hamilton of his ex-team mate's decision to quit Formula 1 at the end of the 2018 season.

In an interview that has just been published in the Spanish media, Hamilton praised the Spaniard for sticking with the sport for so long – 17 seasons – especially in light of his failing to win a world title in 12 years, and says Alonso's lack of silverware far from reflects his ability.
