After the Australian Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso strongly praised Lewis Hamilton and said the Briton made “no mistakes at all”, as you’d “expect from him, a champion”.

Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso were involved in a battle for P2 at the Australian Grand Prix, with the Briton ultimately coming out on top.

Although Alonso tried to put pressure on his former McLaren team-mate, he was ultimately unsuccessful.

After the race, the Spaniard strongly praised Hamilton.

“The race was not easy, for sure,” Alonso said.

“I think at the beginning obviously we got lucky with the first red flag because George [Russell], and Carlos [Sainz] pitted, so we benefit from that.

“And then yeah, in terms of pace we were very close to Lewis, also through the race – but every time that I tried to get close, yes he seemed to pick up the pace.

“I try to put some pressure but, you know, he had an incredible race, no mistakes at all, as you probably expect from him, a champion.

“But only one lock-up, I think, Turn 13, in 58 laps. So I was trying to put pressure but nothing happened.

“So yeah, I will take P3,” he concluded.
