Alonso sees Schumacher as main threat

Speaking at the annual Ferrari Vroom winter meeting Fernando Alonso sees Michael Schumacher as his main rival ahead of the start of the 2011 season.

"There will be five World Champions on the track and the most dangerous champion for me is always Michael," Alonso told reporters during Ferrari's winter retreat at Madonna di Campiglio on Thursday. "Now, if I have to choose one name I have to say Michael. He is seven-time champion, he has nothing to prove. He had a difficult season but he is still a champion. He is still super class and if the car is right he will be a contender."

"Hopefully our car is better than the others and my toughest rival next year is Felipe," Alonso added. "No doubt Sebastian [Vettel] will be a contender. He will have experience and will be calm in certain moments. He will drive better than last year and that makes him dangerous to us. McLaren will also be one of the favorites."
