Hamilton doesn't seem to have a problem with Alonso, if that is just PR spin I don't know.

Alonso has a definate problem with Hamilton, he hates the guy and has made that pretty clear.

He has to put that to the back of his mind if he wants to be WDC.....he should watch Star Wars...giving in to hate will only lead to a bad acting american in a plastic toy model shooting a photon torpedo into your chimney and blow up your house.

Some of the star wars characters actually fit quite well into the McLaren Ferrari struggle.

Yep, it's a slow morning.

Re LH, remember his age, a lot of what he's done and said in the past is nothing more than the arrogance of youth. That video with JB shows he's still a bit of a laddo, but he DOES seem to be growing out of it.
Re Alonso, I've said this before, he should take a good long look at his countryman Rafa Nadal, gives no quarter on-court, so courteous and considerate of his opponent off it. But then again Nadal is a winner and FA is currently a loser.

It seems Alonso has a problem with everyone when he's not winning. I remember Flavor Flav saying that when he was at Renault and leading the championship and lost a race, he would throw all his toys out of the pram in a big way. Grumpiest man alive?

FA definitely has a problem. When he was in Mindardi, not winning was par for the course. Now he's in the Ferrari, his mind says he should be winning and because he's not, he's looking to blame anyone, especially LH, who is one of the most successful drivers at the moment, and certainly getting more headlines than FA. This drives him mad, because he believes that they should be his headlines. If he doesn't get his head straightened out, it will only get worse if Ferrari continue to under perform.

Alonso is just frustrated because he's yesterday's news, no one gives a t.oss about him anymore. He's done. The future is Hamilton, Vettel, Rosberg, etc.

Hamilton revealed in an article at Autosport that he and Alonso are ok with each other

"We are in touch," Hamilton told the Reuters news agency. "He has my number and I have his number. We messaged the other day, things are cool."

Quote above is legit this time.
