Lewis Hamilton says he does not feel bad for Fernando Alonso, as the Spaniard prepares for the last two grands prix in his long Formula 1 career.

In 2007, when Hamilton made his debut, the pair shared an incredibly acrimonious season together at McLaren.

Hamilton not sorry

Alonso left and, although he reprised his stints at Renault and McLaren and also spent years at Ferrari, he never added to his tally of two world championships.

But Hamilton, now one of only two five-time champions in F1 history, says he does not feel sorry for the 37-year-old.

"Sure, he could have won more championships, but it's not like he didn't have the chance.

'He is a phenomenal driver'

"It just depends on making the right decisions outside the cockpit," the Briton told Auto Motor und Sport.

"If you think like he did that you control the driver market, you can't be surprised when you end up without something in your hands. Because Seb and I were also on the market.

"I have a lot of respect for Fernando. He is a phenomenal driver, and I believe his reputation has not suffered in recent years."

"I think people know what he brought inside and outside of F1," Hamilton said of Alonso.
