Lewis Hamilton trolls Fernando Alonso after Verstappen title comments

Alonso labelled Verstappen's title exploits more valuable than those of Hamilton

-

Lewis Hamilton has taken to Twitter to mock the comments made by Fernando Alonso regarding Max Verstappen’s Formula 1 title wins. 

Verstappen has won the last two F1 Drivers’ Championships, albeit in controversial circumstances, with Alonso commenting that they are worth more than the seven won by Hamilton as the Dutchman wasn’t only competing against a teammate. 

“This year Max is very dominant and at some point he was able to cruise to the world title,” Alonso told De Telegraaf.  

“Last season it was different. I thought he outperformed Lewis in the end and I think he is a worthy champion.

“I also have a lot of respect for Lewis. Still, it’s different when you win seven world titles, when you’ve only had to fight with your teammate.

“Then I think that a championship has less value than if you have fewer titles but you have had to compete against other drivers with equal or even better material.”

Following that, Alonso tried to walk back his comments and quell the ensuing media storm with a post on Twitter, claiming at all titles are amazing.  

“Please, all the titles are amazing, well deserved and inspiring. Incomparable to each other and let’s enjoy champions and legends of our current time,” Alonso wrote on Twitter. 

“Tired of the continuous search for headlines. Let’s enjoy them.”

Hamilton has since responded to the comments from Alonso, with a simple yet effective post on Twitter, consisting of a thumbs up and photo of the pair when they were teammates at McLaren
