Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen Face Criticism from F1 Rival: “They Haven’t Built Anything”

, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen Face Criticism from F1 Rival: “They Haven’t Built Anything”

Sports Star Slams F1 Champions

Fernando Alonso, the renowned Formula 1 driver, has launched a scathing attack on Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, claiming that they have not "built anything" throughout their careers. The Spanish driver suggests that their success has been largely attributed to being part of the strongest teams in the sport.

Alonso's Astonishing Claims

Alonso, currently racing for Aston Martin, has played a crucial role in his team's impressive fourth-place standing in the constructors' standings. With seven podium finishes this season, the 42-year-old driver is ranked third. In contrast, Hamilton and Verstappen belong to Mercedes and Red Bull Racing, respectively, with their teams sitting at second and first place in the constructors' table.

Teams vs Individual Achievement

The stark difference in their teams' performances has led Alonso to question the individual contributions made by Hamilton and Verstappen. According to the Spanish driver, when Hamilton joined Mercedes in 2013, his success was primarily due to a change in regulations rather than his personal skills. Alonso further argued that Red Bull's recent dominance is a result of the 2021 regulation changes, not Verstappen's influence.

Downplaying the Role of Drivers

In a controversial statement, Alonso expressed his disbelief at the notion of drivers "building" teams. He believes that technical decisions, regulations, and the design office play a more significant role in a team's success than the input, personality, or driving style of individual drivers.

These comments from Alonso have sparked a debate within the Formula 1 community about the true impact of drivers versus behind-the-scenes factors. While Hamilton and Verstappen continue to excel on the track, it remains to be seen how their careers will be perceived in light of Alonso's criticism.
