Alonso has admitted that he gets extra satisfaction from beating Hamilton, even to this day, after what he feels was a lack of team thinking from the seven-time world champion at McLaren.
“Now there is another type of rivalry, but I don't think Hamilton and I will be friends in the future. After all, we don't have many things in common," he admitted in a new DAZN documentary titled Fernando.
“It is certainly true that by 2007 the rivalry had escalated to the next level.
"We noticed that there was friction. We were playing for the World Championship. At the meetings Hamilton only wanted to correct and improve the defects on his car, he didn't work as a team, in order to gain an advantage.
“There were many things that broke the relationship. We were young, immature, me in particular, and we had many clashes.
"Over time we had several battles," he continued about the pair's later scuffles.
"In 2013 in Canada and last year in Abu Dhabi we played cat and mouse. In Bahrain I experienced one of the happiest moments of the year, because I reached the podium in my first race in Aston Martin, beating Hamilton.
“Every time I overtake him it's an added satisfaction, while, on the contrary, it's a greater pain when I'm overtaken by him. I believe it will always be like this."
