Hamilton fuels rift with Alonso: tensions high
The racer said that his team supports him more than Alonso, which will no doubt intensify the turbulent relationship that's developed since the Hungarian Grand Prix when the Spanish driver threatened to reveal email evidence about McLaren's involvement in the spy row overshadowing the sport to the FIA.
His actions caused McLaren to be thrown out of the constructors' championship and fined £49.2m for possession of Ferrari information.
Already suffering from poor relations with boss Ron Dennis, Hamilton's comments have further agitated an already strained rapport. "You try to understand these people but then the whole idea of what sort of person they are is completely miles out of the ball park."
