Hamilton will not choose 2022 teammate – Alonso

Fernando Alonso doubts that his former teammate Lewis Hamilton will have a say about who he will be teamed up with next year at Mercedes.

It is suggested that while Toto Wolff would like to promote George Russell for 2022 and beyond, seven time world champion Hamilton is pushing hard to keep Valtteri Bottas in place.

“What I think is what we all think,” Alonso, 39, told Spanish media this week.

“As a driver, normally you never have the option of choosing your teammate.

“You race for your team and they always choose the teammate they think is appropriate for the good of the team and you have to accept it.

“But I don’t know the situation they have within Mercedes, or what agreements they have. At the same time, it doesn’t interest me either,” the two-time world champion insisted.

  1. I feel sorry for Alonso. He’s a proud man looking for relevance by adding his two cents. A good driver but does anyone care about what he thinks of Mercedes internal decisions. I don’t think Mercedes called him for his input!

  2. I don’t have a major problem with Alonso.. but to put in your 2 cents and then say you don’t care is a contradiction. If I’m in his position and I don’t care one way or the other, I would say that’s Mercedes business.. I don’t have an opinion ! P.S. He can only speak for himself.. he can’t speak for “we all”
