Lewis Hamilton has revealed how he disobeyed team orders at the Monaco Grand Prix and has outlined his deteriorating relationship with team-mate Fernando Alonso during the 2007 Formula One season.

At the Monaco Grand Prix in May Hamilton chased down Alonso from second place, despite team orders to ease off.

“In the race I felt he was pulling away and I wanted to keep pushing,” Hamilton said.

“‘Back off five seconds for Fernando,’ the team said. ‘I want to win this race. It’s not over till I see a flag,’ I replied. ‘No, keep the gap to five seconds,’ they said.

“But I said: ‘I’m not here to finish second’.”
