Two-time Formula 1 champion Fernando Alonso says Lewis Hamilton wouldn’t be able to enjoy his lifestyle if he had a “normal” car.

While answering journalists’ questions at the Dakar rally, Fernando Alonso compared Lewis Hamilton to seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher.

“Hamilton can win his seventh,” said the Spaniard.

“Each have their own character. Both of them dominated because of their cars, which allowed them to do what they wanted outside of Formula 1.

“Michael had more discipline and preparation. He was more into the team dynamics.

“Lewis has a different character and lifestyle that would not be right if he had a normal car.

“His bosses would not be happy,” concluded Alonso.
