With which drivers do you get along best on the Formula 1 grid?

A few weeks ago, in a chat with his sponsor ‘RAW’, Fernando Alonso lamented that ego and secrecy reign in the Formula 1 paddock, which prevents relationships from flowing like in other disciplines.

“Perhaps in F1, rather, unfortunately, we don’t have the friendship that there is in other sports. In cycling you have your teammates and rivals and there seems to be a good atmosphere,” he explained.

“In F1 there is a lot of distance between all the drivers, secrecy, a lot of ego in the paddock between everyone,” he settled.

Well, in another conversation with ‘Finetwork’, the two-time Formula 1 world champion has answered a question with high doses of morbidity: Which drivers on the grid do you get along with the best?

How could it be otherwise, the first is his compatriot: “Right now, with Carlos (Sainz) without a doubt, because we have known each other for many years.”

Next, he noted the name of Max Verstappen, current F1 champion and self-confessed fan of the man from Oviedo.

“Apart from Carlos, I get along with Verstappen. I think he’s an excellent pilot, we travel together many times on the plane, we share a trip…” added Fernando.
