Both Mercedes drivers deserve title – Alonso

Both Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg would deserve the 2016 Formula 1 world championship if they succeed on Sunday.

That is the opinion of Fernando Alonso, when asked by Spain’s AS newspaper to comment on Sunday’s 2016 title battle between the Mercedes duo.

“They’re similar in the way they have done their job,” said the Spaniard.

“It’s true that they’ve had the best car, but every weekend they did very well without mistakes.

“I think Rosberg has been very consistent at all times, he has not failed and has always got the most from his car. Hamilton is a super talent who has always been ahead in his career,” Alonso added.

“Both have had some ups and downs, perhaps through no fault of their work, like reliability or other things, but I think both would be worthy champions and deserve the title.”

However, when asked to pick the most likely champion, Alonso joined most of the rest of the paddock in predicting a Sunday stroll for Rosberg.

“It’s never easy, but I must say that if things go normally, they will be first and second and that is exactly what Rosberg needs,” he said.
