Fernando Alonso says Lewis Hamilton’s current struggles are not a reflection of his abilities, instead they are down to the car, adding that it’s just the way it goes in Formula 1.

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes have been having a tough time in the first races of the 2022 season, especially at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, where Lewis finished in P13.

However, Lewis’ former team-mate and rival Fernando Alonso says the position is not a reflection of Lewis’ ability, but actually the reality of Formula 1 when you are not driving a good car.

“It’s Formula 1. It has been like this always,” Alonso said.

“When [Ayrton] Senna won the championships and the races, he had the fastest car. When I won the championship, I had the fastest car.

“Michael [Schumacher] had the fastest car. Lewis broke all the records and pole positions because he had the fastest car.

“Today, Lewis is driving super well and he’s P13. It’s Formula 1,” concluded the Spaniard.
