Ahead of the French Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton’s 300th race, two-time Formula 1 champion Fernando Alonso was asked to give his opinion of his former team-mate.

“He had the talent already in 2007, he still has the talent now with experience.

“He has been a tremendous driver, a legend of our sport, so it has been always a pleasure to share all this time with him.
