Alonso: Schumacher main threat in 2011
Michael Schumacher who had a difficult comeback season to the sport in 2010, finishing ninth overall and not one podium finish, has been named by Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, as his major threat for the championship title in 2011. Speaking at Ferrari's media event Wrooom, which is currently taking place at the Italian ski resort, Madonna di Campiglio, the Spanish driver said: "There will be five world champions on the track and the most dangerous champion for me is always Michael. He is a 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." Alonso, also admitted that both McLaren drivers, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton will again be in the mix for the title, whilst current champion, Sebastian Vettel would come back even stronger in 2011 as he battles to keep his title for another year: "No doubt Sebastian 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 favourites."
