F1: Hamilton is getting old, has short memory – Alonso

Fernando Alonso says Lewis Hamilton’s claims about Red Bull’s superiority in F1 2023 shows that he is getting too old and has “a short memory”.

Alonso, who has rarely seen eye-to-eye with Hamilton, rejected the seven-time world champion’s remarks about the RB19 being the fastest car he has ever seen in an interview with French publication L’Equipe ahead of this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix.

“I don’t agree at all,” the two-time world champion said of Hamilton’s view.

“Last week [in Saudi Arabia] I finished 20 seconds behind Checo and Max Verstappen. He and Nico Rosberg were a minute ahead in 2014 and 2015… He has a short memory, he’s getting old!”

“With a normal car, you can see that he has weaknesses,” Alonso added.

“Before, he drove alone or sometimes with his tea-mate. But look, he is the record holder for poles, and George Russell has just given him a 2-0 in qualifying this season. It just goes to show how much the car is still a key factor…”.
