Aston Martin's Fernando Alonso has cheekily responded to Lando Norris' social media post, reminding him of his world championship win during his karting days.
Alonso and Norris are closely competing for positions in the drivers' championship, with only a three-point gap between them, after they both secured podium finishes at the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Despite their battle in the drivers' championship, the pair shared a friendly interaction over a social media post following the podium in Sao Paulo, with Norris playfully poking fun at his lack of world titles.
In a post captioned “2 World Champions and me”, Norris and Alonso posed with three-time world champion Max Verstappen.
However, even with Alonso and Verstappen's World Championship titles, the Spanish driver playfully pointed out to Norris that he too had a championship to his name.
Alonso cheekily commented on the post saying: “3 world champs. Don’t forget you won with [FA Alonso Kart] ”
