According to the Spanish newspaper 'Marca', Fernando Alonso is furious with team mate Lewis Hamilton. Alonso was penalised after the Hungarian qualifying session and was stripped off his pole position. According to the team and Alonso, this was the fault of Hamilton, who refused to obey team orders. The double World Champion was penalised and Hamilton started from pole position. It now appears that Alonso has set an ultimatum...
Alonso declared to 'Marca': "The team has to decide: Or I leave McLaren, or Hamilton leaves".
Yesterday in the Hungarian paddock Alonso declared that he wasn't sure if he would respect his three-year contract with McLaren. When he was asked the question he answered: "I don't know".
According to 'Marca', Alonso's father and manager had a meeting with Renault's Flavio Briatore directly after the Hungarian Grand Prix. Earlier this season, rumours were already spread that Renault wanted Alonso back, but after this new incident at McLaren it seems more and more realistic that the Asturian driver, who became World Champion twice with Renault, will return to his former team.
