Alonso title would be ‘joke’ – Lauda

Niki Lauda says he would prefer if Fernando Alonso did not win a third consecutive world championship in 2007.

The Austrian legend, who won three titles in his own formula one career, referred to Spaniard Alonso’s now openly acerbic relationship with his team boss Ron Dennis.

Contemplating that Alonso could snatch the title from his rookie McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton in Brazil in two weeks, 58-year-old Lauda told the Swiss newspaper Blick: “It would be a joke.

“For weeks Alonso has behaved so badly with his team that he has hardly any friends or supporters left.”
