As one icy F1 relationship almost completely thaws, another has frozen solid.
Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso clashed infamously at McLaren in 2007, but Hamilton has now admitted he would be happy to reunite with the Spaniard.
“I’m happy with the way I have things now but I would have no problems having him as a teammate,” the Briton said.
Hamilton also refused to agree that Alonso’s potential 2010 title win has been tainted by the team orders affair, insisting the now Ferrari driver would “deserve to walk in the company of the great names of the past”.
“You are going to be very hard put to find someone beat him on raw talent,” he told the Mirror.
“When he comes to Zurich he texts me every now and then to meet up,” revealed Hamilton.
Meanwhile, at Red Bull, Sebastian Vettel has revealed that his relationship with teammate Mark Webber is near irreconcilable.
“Quite a few things have happened this season,” the German told Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung newspaper.
“Let’s put it this way: we will probably never be friends,” added Vettel.
