Watch: Furious Fernando Alonso slams Johnny Herbert live on TV

The incident was happened during the last race weekend at Bahrain — Double-time world champion Fernando Alonso had a furious live TV clash with Former F1 driver and popular Sky pundit Johnny Herbert after McLaren’s secret bid to get their injured speedy into the starting line-up for Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix was foiled.

Earlier, the veteran of 165 grands prix, 51-year-old former Benetton and Sauber driver Herbert, had advised Alonso to use his chest injuries as a final excuse to retire.

Alonso, recovering from fractured ribs, hit back with fury on last qualifying Saturday as Herbert was reporting live for Sky from the Bahrain paddock.

The McLaren-Honda driver unexpectedly gatecrashed the TV proceedings to shake Herbert’s hand and declare: “I will not retire. No, I’m world champion.

“You ended up as a commentator because you’re not world champion,” Alonso told Herbert, who won three grands prix during his twelve-year F1 career until 2000.

As Alonso walked off, a clearly uncomfortable Herbert replied: “Thank you very much, that’s good. I wasn’t world champion. Happy man.”
