Apr.1 (GMM) Following the turmoil inside the McLaren team in 2007, Fernando Alonso's current teammate says he is getting along well with the temperamental double world champion.
Brazilian rookie Nelson Piquet, the son of the eponymous triple world champion, told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo that Alonso, 26, is a "great teammate".Alonso fell out spectacularly with his teammate last year, Lewis Hamilton, preceding the Spaniard's decision to break a three year McLaren contract to return to Renault for 2008."We are working together very well," Piquet, 22, told El Mundo Deportivo."When we're at the circuits he tells me how to tackle some corners, or warns me about the problems of the track -- he is really a great teammate," he added.Piquet, however, insists that he also has a good relationship with former GP2 title rival Hamilton, but stopped short of saying they are friends.Asked by El Mundo if Hamilton is his friend, Piquet replied: "Not especially, but you don't tend to have many friends in formula one."I have a good relationship with him though, as I do as well with Vettel and Glock," he added.
