The fiercest driver feud in history?

By Graham Duxbury @TheRealDux


Intrateam rivalries are not new to F1. Currently, relations between Haas drivers Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher are strained. Tensions have, on occasion, simmered over. At the Azerbaijan GP, when Mazepin aggressively blocked Schumacher’s overtake, Schumacher suggested, over the team’s radio, that Mazepin wanted to kill him.

However, this driver feud pales when compared to the hostility between Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso at McLaren during Lewis’ 2007 rookie year. At the Brazilian GP, the season finale, both drivers were vying for the title – together with Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) who was a few points adrift.

Alonso believed that McLaren, a British team, would give Hamilton preferential treatment to ensure the title went to the young Brit. Surprisingly, Alonso managed to persuade F1’s governing body, the FIA, to send an independent steward to Sao Paolo to ensure fair play.

It was all for naught, as Kimi (pictured) won the race and snatched the ’07 championship - by just one point - from under both McLaren drivers’ noses. Hamilton and Alonso finished joint second.

As the dust settled, many McLaren fans were critical of McLaren boss Ron Dennis, claiming he could have better managed his two warring drivers preventing them from scoring points off each other during the season.
