I like their rivalry. Hamilton did say he had only messaged Alonso which is a gracious thing to do and there should be a line drawn under it now but it doesn’t mean Alonso’s truly happy. I’m sure many people have texted people saying that they’re fine and everything’s cool but really thought something else. I’m not trying to stir I’m just saying that it’s not like they’ve had a face to face or anything.
I’ve always believed Alonso when he’s said his problem was always with Mclaren and Ron Dennis not with Hamilton on a personal level. They clearly have a lot of respect for each other, having said that I’m sure Alonso still believes Hamilton blocked him in behind the safety car on purpose.
I suppose it’s nice Lewis send a message to Alonso. Alonso will say he’s cool with it now, like he already wrote on his Ferrari blog.
Those guys will never be best friends and will have problems if they are in the same team. Both are dominant, are convinced about how they are the best. Great to have them both racing in competative cars and fighting it out.
They will only thrust the other to get in fron of them, in a sense the Vodafone clip where they raced each other was very fitting, they shook hands there only meaning a level of acceptance both are there and going fast.
