The perspicacious Martin Brundle conducts an interesting interview with Ron Dennis, Chairman of the McLaren Group, in The Sunday Times. THE subject of conversation, of course, is Lewis Hamilton, and what Brundle describes as team-mate Alonso's emotional reaction to Hamilton's success. I particularly enjoyed the following paragraph:
So, Alonso is completely happy then, Ron? "Anyone is going to be happier if they’re leading the world championship than if they’re not. But that is being a competitive human being. He’s as happy as someone can be in his situation. But not as happy as he would be if he was leading." So, happy within the constraints of being someone who is not particularly happy, then.
