Hamilton penalties 'not bad luck' - Alonso

Global Motorsport Media

After a week of speculation, the special 'Lewis Hamilton meeting' between his rivals and Charlie Whiting did not take place at Suzuka.

But the rumblings about the 2008 world champion's driving antics in 2011 continue in the Suzuka paddock.

After their disastrous season as McLaren teammates, Fernando Alonso is now reluctant to talk about 2007, sometimes insisting that he actually had no problems at all with the Briton.

But when probed on Hamilton's apparently too-aggressive style of 2011, the Spaniard told Autosprint: "To me, an accident like the one between Lewis and Felipe in Singapore can happen maybe once every two years.

"To some, it happens rather more often. If you are penalised six times in a season it is not a unique case or bad luck," added Alonso.

Earlier, he had repeated similar comments to Spanish reporters and concluded: "I don't want to say anything more about it."
