Hamilton on why he won't reunite with Alonso

Cape Town - Lewis Hamilton says he'll never partner Fernando Alonso as the two work like north poles of a magnet, creating "negative energy." 

Hamilton and Alonso teamed up back in 2007 at McLaren in what turned out to be a fractious relationship. 

One a rookie, the other a double World Champion, both had something prove and butted heads on and off the track. 

But while many in Formula 1 would like to see the two as team-mates once again, believing it would be the strongest pairing on the grid, Hamilton says it will never happen. 

Asked whether he would consider ever partnering Alonso, he told German newspaper Stuttgarter Zeitung: "No. That will not happen. 

"Toto [Wolff, Mercedes team boss] understands how the interpersonal dynamics of a team works.

 "I would compare it to a magnet: when two north poles meet, they repel each other. You need a north and a south pole. 

"Two of the same result in negative energy, as in 2007 between me and Alonso."
