Alonso Not Afraid Of Vettel

Fernando Alonso says he wouldn't have a problem being team mates with Sebastian Vettel, if the German champion moved to Ferrari in the future. Speaking to the Spanish media in Oviedo earlier this week, the twice world champion responded to Ferrari president, Luca di Montezemolo comments where he claimed Sebastian Vettel would one day drive for Ferrari. "I'm not afraid of Vettel, should he come to Ferrari one day it won't be a problem, I have nothing to say on the matter. I'm not afraid to face any team-mate, I've never feared any of them." Alonso, also pointed out that he has never been out-scored by a team-mate in his Formula 1 career and so would have no reason to fear Vettel. "None of my team-mates have ever done a single point more than I have, so I don't see why I should be afraid of anyone." The Spaniad added that he was also confident Ferrari would produce a car capable of challenging Red Bull and McLaren for the 2011 championship. "I have no doubts that next year I will have the car I want. Ferrari has to aim for the title because of the prestige it has always had."
