Fernando Alonso showed consistent performance in every race, finished with points in all races. The Spaniard now led the drivers’ title, 37 points ahead of McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton who standing fourth on the drivers’ championship.

“He’s the toughest guy out there and he is also the cleverest,” Lauda told the Mirror.

“He knows what to do and after years at Ferrari he has settled in, knows how to be consistent, and has kept the team going forward step by step.

“Red Bull have technically caught up too, but all things considered I see Alonso as the most complete driver.”

“They are both [Button and Hamilton] world champions and better than they were made to look at Silverstone,” added Lauda. “They are suffering from the performance of the car.”

“Alonso has such a lead already and if things carry on as they should, he won’t be making mistakes,” said Lauda.

“It’s already getting tough for ¬Hamilton (below) and Button in the title race.

“It’s not the points difference that I’m talking about.. it’s not over for them, but even if they score big Alonso won’t be far behind, so to ¬reduce the gap is ¬going to difficult.”

Sky Sports ambassador Sir Stirling Moss backing defending world champion Sebastian Vettel. “Alonso has the benefit of a team practically rebuilt from scratch by Michael Schumacher,” he said.

“But I still think Vettel is going to take a lot of ¬beating.”
