Alonso and Hamilton build upon their own character by building the other up. This is because the two proved to be equals at McLaren in '07. By saying the other is the "greatest," then that implies that they are, themself, equally as "great."
But the truth is that neither of them are "greats" along the lines of Schumacher, Prost, or Lauda.
Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso haven't done anything "great" since the days when they were gifted the fastest car on the grid. That was the '05-'06 Renault and the '07-'08 Mclaren (which was actually a composite of the Ferrari and McLaren's own research since McLaren stole the blueprints for the Ferrari which they were fined 100m.)

He (LH) is right in what he is saying, Hamilton has scored in every race, scored three podiums (as has the Ferrari man) but somehow Alonso tops the standings while he (LH) is approaching a podium behind. Apart from the teams, the main difference I see between the two is that one of them is quite nice to his engineers during races and doesnt openly criticize his team inbetween races

Hamilton admires Alonso, for how he continually carries that team to the top. No other driver could do what FA has managed to do and he's the glue that holds Ferrari together, no doubt about it. 2007 was a long time ago.
