Alonso (L) left the team one year into a three year contract following tensions with Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton has had intense rivalries with each of his teammates ever since his entry into the world of Formula One in 2007. Making his debut with McLaren, he was paired with Fernando Alonso, who had won World Championships with Renault both years prior.

The tension between the pair led to McLaren and Alonso terminating their relationship, with the Spaniard returning to Renault the following year following intense tensions between the teammates, with several news sources reporting that the pair were not even on speaking terms.

The British team agreed to relieve Alonso from his contract 2 years early due to the contentious relationship, with no ramifications monetary or otherwise.

But whilst together at team McLaren-Mercedes, the two were in a hilarious advertisement for Mercedes-Benz.

A very special McLaren makes an appearance at the end.
