Two-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso thinks Lewis Hamilton isn’t “valued enough” for his “top level” performance “every weekend, whether it’s raining or dry”.

Ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix Fernando Alonso gave his opinion of his former McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

“You need to value what he is doing,” the Spanish driver told Marca.

“Does he have the best car? Yes. But, with the best car you need to deliver every weekend, whether it’s raining or dry, or whatever.

“You have to perform when Red Bull have a good weekend and then also when they’re at a track where they’re slower.

“You can only do that if you’re performing at the top level and I don’t know if what he’s doing is being valued enough.

“It seems he is in an ideal moment in terms of his driving and his role in the team and even with a bit of luck, because he had some in Imola.

“I know he is appreciated, but I give him a lot of credit because Mercedes don’t have the dominance of three or four years ago, when they won quite easily. Others are closer, but it doesn’t seem to affect him.

“He always gives 100 percent, so you have to congratulate him,” concluded Alonso.
