Two-time Formula 1 champion Fernando Alonso has hit back at allegations of unsportsmanlike conduct from fellow driver Lewis Hamilton in the recently concluded Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Hamilton accused Alonso of executing a “break-test” on him during the race, a move in which a driver unexpectedly slows down in order to catch their competitor off guard. Hamilton claimed the move was a deliberate attempt by Alonso to impede his progress in the race.
However, Alonso has vehemently denied the allegations, stating that he has “more experience” than Hamilton and would never resort to such tactics in a race. The Spanish driver pointed out that he has been racing for over two decades and has developed a strong reputation for fair play and good sportsmanship.
Alonso’s comments come in the midst of a heated rivalry between the two drivers, who have been involved in numerous on-track battles over the years. The duo has a history of fierce competition and has often found themselves at odds during races.
Despite the controversy, Alonso remains focused on his future in the sport and is determined to continue competing at the highest level. The 40-year-old driver recently made a comeback to Formula 1 after a two-year hiatus and has been eager to show that he still has what it takes to compete with the best in the sport.
As the Formula 1 season draws to a close, the rivalry between Alonso and Hamilton is expected to continue into the next season, with fans eagerly anticipating more thrilling on-track battles between the two seasoned drivers.
