‘Alonso suffering from sour grapes’


Formula One leader Lewis Hamilton has dismissed Fernando Alonso’s complaints about him after the recent European Grand Prix as ‘sour grapes’ from the Ferrari driver.
The Spaniard branded the race in Valencia ‘manipulated’ in his former McLaren teammate’s favour after the Briton effectively paid no penalty for illegally passing the safety car.
“I even saw him (Alonso) overtaken by a Sauber on the big screen. It is very unlike him to be overtaken by a Sauber so he must have been completely in another world. The FIA are doing an incredible job because they are allowing us to race this year,” he said. —Reuters
