McLaren teammates Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton patched up their damaged working relationship with a hotel meeting on Thursday, the Woking based team revealed on Friday.

In a statement, Ron Dennis’ outfit confirmed media reports that the pair, who left Hungary three weeks ago not on speaking terms, stayed away from the Istanbul circuit so as to patch up their differences in the nearby city.

Alonso and Hamilton met with their bosses “independently” in the hotel, thought to be the five-star ‘Conrad’, before finding a “constructive way forward” with a separate face-to-face encounter, McLaren announced in a statement issued to the press.

“We are now turning our full attention to the Turkish grand prix and the rest of the season,” it concluded.
