"I find it strange he said that, because I feel ever since he joined the team have been extremely motivated to push us both to winning. Ron Dennis and other guys in the team are pushing hard, working hard to make sure we have equal opportunities. It is always going to be difficult.
I have a great relationship with all the guys in the team, I have been there since I was 13, but when Fernando came they were excited. I don't know why he would say that but I guess because he is Spanish and I am English he might feel that way but I don't agree with it personally.
I doubt he was expecting me to do as well as I am, but I don't know if that is why he is saying what he is saying. Coming into the team he is a two-time champion, he has not really been challenged. He's had some challenges, but not someone as close as me and as good a friend off the track. So it is a very difficult situation."

Since Alonso's comments have surprised Hamilton, it will be interesting to see how this affects Hamilton in the next race. I think it was clever mind games by the great Alonso. Hamilton has to prove that mind games don't work on him.
