Hamilton: I want to be fight against Alonso

Mercedes new recruit, Lewis Hamilton has lift up the stakes with his former team McLaren, and team-mate Nico Rosberg, by saying he is not looking at McLaren or Button next season.

Lewis Hamilton has described that his old team-mate Fernando Alonso is the fastets man in the field, the Brit pointout that he is the most experianced driver in this sport, and Ferrari is actually really competitive. 2008 world champion also added that he wants to be fight against Alonso.

Yet surely an immediate mission will begin with his duel against Button and his old team McLaren, who groomed him for stardom from childhood?

‘That doesn’t really excite me,’ Hamilton explained to The Mail on Sunday.

Instead, he wants to be judged against Fernando Alonso, and Sebastian Vettel, the winners of five of the past eight world championships. Most of all, he wants to be assessed against Alonso, a winner of 30 grands prix.

‘The rivalry between me and Fernando excites me more [than with Button],’ said Hamilton. ‘He’s the guy I want to beat. You also want to beat Seb, as they are the ones with most titles. But Alonso’s the fastest driver I can see. He’s also one of the most experienced. Anyone would struggle to beat him.

‘Trying to finish ahead of Alonso, in a Ferrari that is actually really competitive, is a really nice challenge. And I do think the Ferrari is going to be quick this year.’
