It is a fact that the Spanish driver Fernando Alonso has a better relationship with Max Verstappen and he made that clear in an interview prior to the Mexican Grand Prix with the newspaper De Telegraaf, where he commented that the Dutchman’s titles are more valid than those of Lewis Hamilton.
“Max’s titles are more valuable than Hamilton’s,” says Alonso one day before the Mexican Grand Prix takes place this Sunday.
“I have a lot of respect for Lewis but, it’s different when you win seven world titles having had to fight alone against your teammate. I think a championship like that has less value than when you’ve fought against other drivers with equivalent or even better equipment.
Fernando Alonso He commented that he went through a similar situation in the 2005 season, when he already had a wide lead and was not forced to compete with his teammate at the time.
“In 2005 and 2006 I had a good start to the year and was able to build up an advantage. Then others had a better car, but I was able to manage that difference. I never had to fight with my teammate Giancarlo Fisichella to win the title. Max has fought with Sergio Pérez or Alex Albon to win races,” he adds.

Alonso also considers Hamilton’s period of domination similar to Schumacher’s at Ferrari: “Schumacher, in particular, fought with his teammate Rubens Barrichello to be champion five times in a row, and Hamilton with Rosberg and Bottas. That’s different, I think.” “.
