Sealing the peace: Fernando Alonso hilariously interrupted a Lewis Hamilton interview

Written in MORE SPORTS the

The tensions between Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton rose last weekend after crashing at the Belgian Grand Prix. The incident prompted a heated verbal tirade from the Spaniard, as the seven-time champion decided to take the blame and apologize for the contact that occurred on the opening lap of the course that took him out too early off the track.

Later, Lewis Hamilton joked on Instagram and posted a picture of a signed Mercedes cap addressed to the two-time F1 champion. Although pictures of Fernando Alonso removed from the “paddock” of the German team thanks to a gift from his former teammate at McLaren, the Asturian had not yet had a public gesture with the seven-time champion.

Now, Fernando Alonso seems to have parted ways with the controversy and decided to interrupt one of Sunday’s pre-race interviews at Zandvoort, in which Lewis Hamilton was chatting with F1 journalist Chris Medland, to jokingly ask where his cap was .

Ahead of the hilarious moment, the Mercedes star reacted happily then photographed herself with Fernando Alonso. It came after the Spanish pilot used his own media time on Thursday to apologize for his cockpit language the previous weekend. However, he also took the opportunity to underline his belief that he felt the situation had been exaggerated.

Fernando Alonso pointed the finger at the British media

“It became something huge,” the two-time world champion said when asked if he regretted his comments. “First of all it’s Lewis, he’s a champion, a legend of our times and then when you say something – and I’m sorry to repeat it – against a British driver there’s a lot of media involvement after that.

“They said a lot of things to Checo [Sergio Pérez]to Carlos [Sainz]For me, if you say something to a Latin driver, everything is a little more fun. If you tell Lewis, it’s a little more serious. But yes, I apologize,” concluded Fernando Alonso.

It looks like the former McLaren teammates are on good terms again, a week after their collision. Both will look for a positive result at Zandvoort this weekend in race number 15 of the 2022 season.
