Alisson stated, “Joining Mercedes this year has been a considerable pleasure for many, many reasons, but one of those was that it was my first opportunity to start working alongside Lewis. I have found a racing driver of the sort of excellence that all of us can see from his statistics and the way he goes about his job. But what has been particularly good is that I have found a guy who conducts himself as a man in a way that makes you happy to work alongside him. Joining Mercedes has been an enjoyable and good thing for me because of this.”

Although the Technical Boss has had a close working relationship with Alonso, Hamilton, and Vettel, which is almost unique in the paddock. He declined to evaluate which of the illustrious trio he rated the highest.

“I get asked this question a lot and it’s a frustrating question because, first of all, there’s an impossibility of answering it because there’s only one way to know for sure and it’s to line them all up in exactly the same equipment on the same days and have a championship where you find out exactly,” he added.

Nonetheless, Allison acknowledged that all three drivers achieved their victories and accomplishments through their brilliant skillful driving. Not by good fortune.
