Damon Hill on Fernando Alonso: I'd get him to defend me in a murder charge

Fernando Alonso has had a great start to the season. His experience is very important in the whole story, but Alonso also has some other abilities. That's exactly what Damon Hill was talking about. “We were making a joke that he should be a lawyer.

I'd get him to defend me in a murder charge!” Hill said, as quoted by crash.net “It's boring driving the car, he needs something else to do. He's going around going, 'Can I do the strategy as well? Give me more information.'

He already understands the rules. You'd expect someone who's been in Formula 1 as long as he has and had all the experiences to have learned something, but you can't automatically assume that." Hill compared him to a great F1 star: Michael Schumacher.

“He's invested in this, he understands it, and he knows, like Michael Schumacher as well. Michael Schumacher understood where the openings were, where the opportunities were, and he took advantage of those, and it's the same with Fernando.

He's got to become a team boss eventually, because he'd be brilliant. He just understands this game."

Lewis Hamilton and regulations

Lewis Hamilton is not looking his best this season. The last race in Australia gives optimism, but it will not be easy until the end of the season.

During an interview after the race in Australia, Hamilton spoke about the regulations. However, the Brit emphasized that things are the same. “Nope, it’s the same as the past,” he said. “I think last year for us was pretty bad with the bouncing, because you’ve got the turbulence and the bouncing, whereas this year we don’t have the bouncing, so we have less issues following cars.

I think it’s still a little bit better than the previous generation of cars. But hasn’t delivered everything that it said it would, so got some improvements to make hopefully for the future."
