Expert Opinion

Former world champion Mika Hakkinen believes Fernando Alonso is struggling to come to terms with being beaten by a rookie. Lewis Hamilton leads the title race by seven points from bitter McLaren rival Alonso following a contentious Hungarian Grand Prix.

The team-mates are no longer on speaking terms following their row after qualifying when Alonso was adjudged to have deliberately impeded Hamilton in the pit lane.

Alonso was subsequently demoted from pole to sixth on the grid, leaving Hamilton to claim the third win of his debut season and take a step nearer world title glory.

Hakkinen, who won the championship in 1998 and 1999 with McLaren, said: "Fernando is the double world champion while Lewis has just started his career.

"But he has already caused him a number of worries, something that Fernando is struggling to accept.

"McLaren treat both drivers equally but Alonso just can't accept such strong competition from a novice."

Hakkinen is confident embattled team boss Ron Dennis will be able to resolve the furore.

Speaking in Caracas, Venezuela, promoting a campaign warning against the dangers of drinking and flying, Hakkinen added: "For Ron the situation is troublesome but he is absolutely the right person to be able to deal with it."
