Hamilton jokes about his accident with Alonso and prepares a gift for him

At the start of the 2022 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix, two world champions were in very good positions on the grid. Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton were occupying the second row when the lights went out at Spa-Francorchamps on Sunday, and managed to overtake Sergio Pérez to face the climb to the Kemmel straight in parallel.

At the time of reaching Les Combes, the Mercedes driver chose to go around the outside of the corner, while the Alpine driver went around the inside, causing an accident between the two that left the Briton out of the race. A few seconds after the touch, the Spaniard described the rival as “idiotic”, pointing out that “he only knew how to run when he started first”.

When Lewis Hamilton arrived in the media area for post-test interviews, he was exposed to Fernando Alonso’s words over the radio, in which he said he wanted to repent for causing the incident, but would not apologize to his former partner for his statement.

Now, even with the recent meeting, the seven-time champion added fuel to the fire with a photograph on his Instagram account in which a Mercedes cap appeared with a sticker that said it was “for Fernando”.

 

“Even though the weekend didn’t go the way we wanted it to, after an amazing break, it was great to get back to work,” the Englishman wrote. “I love my job, my team, the energy in Spa. Thanks to the team for all the hard work and to the fans who came out to show their love, I appreciate you.”

It is unknown if the driver of the silver arrows did it with the intention of sending a hidden message to his rival at McLaren in the 2007 season, since the image was the last of a carousel of five photographs in which you had to slide until the end to see it.

However, that could also be a sign of the attitude that Lewis Hamilton has taken in 2022, where, despite the poor performance of his W13, he wants to turn the page as soon as possible to fight again for his eighth title to tie the tie with Michael Schumacher in the next course.

In the same social network, he only dedicated words to the Brackley team after the race, and did not want to mention Fernando Alonso: “First of all, I want to apologize to my followers, especially those who have come to support me. I have been almost 30 years competing, and the feeling that leaves a mistake is as deep as the first.

“My team, which works so hard, deserved more,” he continued in the publication accompanied by an image with the team’s boss, Toto Wolff . “We’re not where we want to be, but we won’t stop working until we get to where we know we belong. Great driving from George Russell, well done mate.”

“Everyone get home safe and sound, sometimes this is life, it happens but it’s not how we fall, it’s how we get up. I’ll work as hard as I can to come back stronger.”
